Busy, Busy.. But With What?

Don't really know where to start, to be honest. I know its been a long time since I posted on here, and I do apologize for that.  But I have been busy with life, busy with school, busy with family, busy with friends, busy with boys, busy with texting, busy with movies, busy with, busy with, busy with. Basically, what I'm trying to say is: I've been busy with wasting my life. Now don't get me wrong, school, family and friends are important, and they do deserve a special place in our lives. But I am in awe with how I can be so busy, without actually accomplishing anything.

I feel like it's all starting to encroach upon our purpose. Yea, I said the word, and I mean it. Purpose. What's our purpose here on earth? Why did God put us here? Think about that. In the midst of all the "stuff" I was spending my time on, I forgot what was really important. Like posting here and encouraging all of you! I forgot about the book I was supposed to be writing! I forgot about lives that God wanted me to touch. I was just too busy. So I'm gonna be different now. I'm tired of the same old boring, stressed, busy me. God has helped change my focus to what he really wants me to be doing, and I am gonna change that from now on.

Maybe I'm not the only one. Maybe you have noticed that your life is being crowded with a bunch of "stuff" that really isn't important or worth your time. Maybe this is God's way of telling you its time to clean out house and focus on your purpose. STOP. Don't go any further. Stop for a minute and talk to God about what things He wants you to clear out, so you can get refocused on what truly matters.

Jeremiah 29:11 ESV 
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
