At the beginning of the year, did you find yourself saying something like, “This year I’m going to get healthy?” Yet, here it is July and you haven’t taken a step in that direction. What about this week, have you agreed to do something for &/or with someone that you really don’t want to do? Or, have you had a dream tucked away in your heart for years and convinced yourself that you will get around to it some day? If we are honest, we can all relate to one, if not all, of these examples. I, for one, believe it is because we are not clear on the things that are truly important to us; therefore, we are not making, I repeat, WE ARE NOT MAKING the time in our schedules for them.
See, when we know what is truly important to us, we can make time for them. And we can also choose not to participate in things that do not align with those things. In John 10:10, we are reminded that the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. I believe one of the ways he does that is through time. By consuming our days with things that are not important to us or the Lords purpose for our lives, we cannot pursue those things that are.
With that said, I am going to challenge each of you to get crystal clear on the things that are important to you. Start by brainstorming the things that you value that are important and follow that up by writing down a few sentences that will tie them all together. This will serve as your compass. Are you in? I sure hope so! We are each given a certain amount of time to do the things we love and were created to do. There is not time to waste doing things that do not serve that purpose.
Thank you for joining me. I’ll see you guys back here tomorrow ! Take care !
