Jacob’s Ladder – Ideas And PrioritiesNov 10th, 2011 | By Jacob | Category: Editorials
By Jacob Bembry
I have ideas that are trying to burst my brain apart in an attempt to get out and find the freedom to walk on their own. They want legs. Each time that I sit at my computer at home, partially written book manuscripts scream for my attention and promise me relief if I will just complete them. Other ideas pop into my brain; fresh ideas for new manuscripts. Usually, though, I am too tired from writing, typing and editing all day at work to do anything about it.
My ideas are not the only thing that take a backseat when it comes to time dedicated to them. My relationship with Jesus Christ, unfortunately, many times finds itself lagging. I do not spend enough time in prayer or Bible reading and study as I should. I know that if I focus on this, then I will probably find time to complete those books crying out for my attention.
When I need God, He is always there for me, so I should make an effort to spend a lot more time with Him than I do.
