Faith and School: A Balance

Updated: Jan 9

Hello, beautiful and wonderful Children of God, long time no blog!! Today, I am going to discuss a topic I believe a lot of young people like us face and struggle with, especially those of us in college and up. The question is: how do I balance both God and school, how do I make time for both and excel in both? I want to start off by introducing 2 quotes to you all. 

“Life will always get busy, make time to do the things you love.”- Lailah Gifty Akita

“You will never find time to do anything. If you want time you must make it.”- Charles

Buxton

As human beings and people living in a world run by a 24 hour clock, time seems to never be on our side. As students, we go to school for 6+ hours a day, come home to 5+ hours of homework, and lose another 2-3 on extracurriculars. As adults, we go to work for 7-8 (some even more) hours a day, come home to busy households and are constantly active with no time to ourselves. I’ve come to realize that so long as we live, there will never be ‘time’; that is why we must make time.

To do so, you need to ask yourself what is important to you and make up your mind to prioritize such things. Let me tell you right now, if you don’t make time for God, He is not a priority and if you do not prioritize God, you will not make time for Him. We need to be serious, genuine, and intentional when it comes to God. School is important and we are to excel at all we do, for the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:31, that we are to do all things to the glory of God. However, nothing should take God’s place and God’s time because the minute it does, we have started to idolize it. If we can make up our minds to make God our number 1, just as He does, our lives will change. Matthew 6:33 ESV reads “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” The “these things” the Bible speaks of are all the things that God desires for us to have; aka, all the things we need in life. God takes care of His children and He loves us regardless, so why are we neglecting our ever so caring and loving Father?

Haven’t you noticed that when you begin to engage in things you love and enjoy, you no longer consider them to be “chores” or mandatory tasks? Joy and peace comes from reading the Word and getting to know what God has said and what He is like. Burdens are lifted and weights are removed when we take time to tackle and destroy things in prayer. Gratitude is shown and blessings are received when we take time to meditate on the constant goodness of God and how far He has brought us. Learn to love God, like really love Him and you will see how your days slowly come to be filled with God and your time centers around Him.
