and the One who walks with me on it.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness;
and all these things shall be added to you.
Mt. 6:33

Surely I seek you first Lord, right?

Like when:
I start my morning with coffee, breakfast and the paper before I even say good morning to You.
I down a painkiller before I pray for my healing.
I talk to my co-workers about trends and watch youtube during breaks.
I run to my friend first instead when I'm hurting.
I scramble to figure out financial solutions instead of talking to You.
I check my emails and facebook when I get home from work.
I turn on the tv before I even crack open my Bible.
I go to sleep exhausted but have watched 3 hours of tv, talked to 2 friends on the phone, texted several others, did a little Sudoku, read one chapter of my latest novel, and still have not even spent five minutes before sleep to thank You for life and breathe and Your patience with me...

Well, it still doesn't seem like I seek You first!

Guess I shouldn't expect all those things to be added to me.   :-\
