Need someone to critique my logs! [Holy Priest]

Hey guys!

So I am not new to playing a holy priest, I just have recently started to get back into raiding and plan on stepping away from casual raids and hopefully do mythics soon when my guild gets the numbers. I was hoping someone could look at my logs and tell me what I am doing wrong/right, what I could work on...anything really.

I want to get better! I feel like my overhealing is on the tad side...I personally feel like its my Echos of light (me not letting them do their thing and topping people off) . I also feel like I don't use Blessing of Tuure as much as I should. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks so much for the help! (Im holy priest, not shadow) ... lla/simple

Let's start off with your gear.
Too much haste, although not a terrible stat, as it stands mastery is generally much stronger due to Echo being very powerful. With 30% crit being mentioned the most to maximize our BoT uptime without dropping down our mastery too much.

You shouldn't be hardcasting renew, especially since you are taking benediction. You are essentially taking away it's ability to blanket the raid by double handling itself. It looks as though your casts of PoH are very random, and not sync'd well with divinity and Power of the Naaru buffs ( which increase it's potency by a large amount ).
For an 8 minute fight, you should have more casts of PoM. Use it every time you can when running benediction, it works so well with the artifact talents.
Way too much overhealing with sanctify, though serenity can be forgiven due to it's huge heal, sanctify cannot. Use it wisely and at the correct times to maximize it's utility.

All I advise about Echo of Light, is don't give 2 shits about it's overhealing. It will overheal regardless of what you do or don't do. Focus on cutting out your renew hardcasts, improve your spell usage during buffs, and don't use sanctify if it's not going to hit 6 + people who need healing. Also Light of T'uure is an amazing buff to have on tanks during most encounters, try using it more.

(P.S 40% overhealing on Hymn happens, but try talk with your other healers as to when they/you are using cd's to make more use of it).

Edit: Also I would suggest not running symbol, it's not needed to down bosses and Light of the Naaru is just too strong to warrant using it. (Unless your healers are struggling drastically with mana).
