PRAYER: Papa allow us to rearrange our schedules and spend more time with You, our family, and our friends. Teach us the value of our time in life.
VERSE OF THE DAY: Psalm 90:12
How often are we constantly on the go and never have enough time to do much of anything? Everything is full speed, convenient, or have it your way. Things are done twice as fast as they were when our great grandparents and grandparents were children growing up, yet they managed to find time. They found the time to make meals and have long conversations with their loved ones, family, and friends. So, why is it so hard for us to do this now considering we have more time on our hands then they did?
After you go through a few things you begin to value the importance of time in life. The moments of being too busy fade away and you begin to realize that the people who make up your family and friends are so important to you. You begin to value how well you take your time verses not having enough time. Tomorrow is not promised. Not talking to loved ones, holding grudges, not forgiving are all ways that the enemy tries to use as a distraction from us staying connected to one another. Our bond is important. It is our strength.
Making time for one another is important. You shouldn’t work so much that you never spend time with your spouse or kids, your mom or dad, your siblings, etc. I don’t care how old they are or if they have their own lives, getting on their schedule is just as important as them being on yours. Now make sure you pray about past hurts, mistakes, and failures. Forgive where needed for no man is perfect. We are all humans and flawed.
Ask God to help you in your areas of short comings. Ask Him to draw you closer to those you love and to rearrange your schedule in order to make time. Sometimes this even means making time for ourselves. I encourage you to seek God, rearrange your schedules, and make time accordingly. Remember time is ticking. Don’t let it pass you by but instead enjoy the time you have together.
