I woke up the other day with two papers due, 10 text messages that deserved thorough and urgent responses, three meetings to plan, and an achy neck that desperately needed physical therapy.
I knew what I had to do. I walked to the park, put on some worship music, opened my Bible, and prayed.
It may feel counterintuitive to go spend time with God when your to-do list is a mile long, and people need you. Many of you are college students, working multiple jobs, trying to pay for tuition, while taking care of your family. I don’t pretend to know how difficult your specific circumstances are, but I do know that a daily prayer life can feel luxurious and impractical.
