Making Changes For The Better

NOTE:  This is more of a personal write, in the
    form of a prayer to God.  I set up a general
    weekend schedule, with the aim to make better
    use of my time and have more balance in my life.

I commit this weekend plan to You, Lord
Desiring with all my heart to do Your Will
These changes are not like keeping score
Because I know there will be exceptions still

But without goals to start, why even bother
It all begins with having the right priorities
Putting You first and reaching out to others
Placing myself last, with all my other duties

Even in times of sickness, when I need rest
I don't have to abandon my plan completely
Caring for my body, You know what is best
I can still focus on You and others prayerfully

In times when I am weary and get burned out
You understand and know all my limitations
It is then that I need to refocus without a doubt
As to what I can or cannot control in situations

The more I focus my attention and eyes on You
Developing Your thoughts and actions as my own
Then my faith will grow in everything that I do
This is my prayer as I daily approach Your throne

Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great
cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that
hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and
let us run with perseverance the race marked out
for us.  2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author
and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before
him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat
down at the right hand of the throne of God.
