Be honest. Do you love junk food? My absolute favorite junk food is Cheetos, followed closely by nachos of any kind. I could sit, eat junk food, and binge-watch my favorite series and be pretty happy.
However, I’ve realized that if I fill up all my extra time with things like watching TV and social media, I don’t even have any time to hear from God.
That isn’t good. We should be making knowing God a priority.
Proverbs 20:27 – The spirit of a man is the lamp of the lord searching all the inner depths of his heart
God wants to speak to you. He wants to tell you about your future. He wants to reveal secrets from His word to you. The problem is, many times it feels better to eat Cheetos than it does to get quiet with God.

You’re more fulfilled when you include God in your life.
In the long run, however, you’re going to be happier and more fulfilled when you include God into your life. When you get God in your decision-making process, you’ll avoid many of the mistakes and pitfalls that others will make. God knows you, He knows the things that will be good for you and if you’ll trust Him with your future, you’ll find out that things are so much better.
So this year, challenge yourself to put aside that bowl of Cheetos for a bit and focus on God. Learn to hear His voice and seek Him for your future plans and desires!
