If you’re feeling anxious about time, take this moment and pray that God will give you the time you need to do what needs to be done. Time is God’s gift, and when you become mindful of this gift, you’ll be surprised to find that the time you need is suddenly there. …
God understands your need to have time to accomplish your daily tasks, but you need to understand that the moment you have, this moment, is the time to seek God first.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2013)
