Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”
I believe we “maintain control” by controlling our schedule rather than letting it control us. If our schedule is taking us away from the things that are most important then it’s time to reevaluate what we are doing and make the necessary adjustments. Again, remembering that sometimes we just have to endure the busy season for a time… “this too shall pass”.
Bottom line: We should never be too busy for God!
