Sometimes it never feels like, there is enough time, in the day, to get, everything done. it sometimes even seems that you turn around and the day or time has evaporated. Where did it go? I think the reason people are so consumed, in habits is because, we live in the last days. If you don’t believe that, read the Bible. When Jesus described the, end of days. You would think He was here now, watching us. What does this have, to do, with, time management. You are your own manager, and it is up to you, if you want to make it, to the finish line. There’s only one person, that can truly manage their own time, and that person is you.
Why is this so important? There are so many distractions in life, and the only way to make sure, to get, everything done, is you guessed it, time management. So in order to avoid distractions, it’s important to set goals. Setting goals should be a part of the day, just like giving time, to the Father. Someone can easily set goals and meet them by, making a list. This is rewarding itself especially when you are able to cross or check all your goals off as done.
I feel, that the most rewarding thing, to do, is schedule your day, but put the Father at the top of the list, and stick to the schedule. This has, and will always lead to a great day. It is rewarding, at the same time, because when you love the Lord you want, to spend, time with Him. Life is always going to have distractions and obstacles, but having a list ready, will ensure that, at least the distractions won’t make you forget. On top of that when someone gives their time to the Father, He will show them ways, to save time, money, and energy.
Priorities are things that have to be done, no matter what and distractions are things that interrupt those priorities. I feel that sometimes it is necessary to change our priorities, because sometimes as we grow as a person, they will change. Putting the Lord at the top of your priority list, shows Him, your at least making the effort, to put, Him first. The truth is every person, may have different lists, of things that need to be done, but time never changes. We were all given the same 24 hours, in a day.
Distractions, disruptions, and obstacles are things, that will try and take away from your time. Have you ever had a moment, when you had everything going perfectly, until the phone rang? The next thing you know your hanging up the phone, and your list that you thought was almost done, has now grown, and there’s things that need to be added now too. One strategy I suggest is putting the phone down, maybe if you have someone that’s supposed to call you can leave it on. The most damaging thing to do to your day is starting it with social networks. It’s ok to use as a tool, but I do not believe, most people use it in that way. Turn off the television, or turn on a spiritual teaching, and put it on low. If this is distracting to you, ignore it, but it works for me. What also works for me, is getting things done when others are sleeping. My best prayer time, devotions, and studying have always come to me when others are sleeping. This may take a sacrifice, because someone will either have to wake up earlier, than everyone else, or to stay up a little later.
Father, I pray for forgiveness, for making things, more important, and not giving You more time, at the beginning, of my day. Help me, to practice, what I’m writing. Father I will always need You, to direct, my steps, and guide me, so that I am not waisting the precious time I do have left. Guide me when I make my goals, and show me how to make more out of them. I pray that if someone, is not willing to receive You, that they be weeded out of my life. I pray if they are willing for You to guide me, and help me to do what You would do. In Jesus name I come against obstacles, distractions, and disruptions, that are trying to disrupt anyone reading these words. Lord reveal to everyone reading, if they have any distracting influences, in their life sent, to steal, their time. I praise you for helping everyone, to make even better use of their time than before, in Jesus’ Name we pray. 💛
