Time: something you’re not in control of. something you won’t have forever. So what do you need to start working on now?
As the year is drawing to an end, it’s so easy to feel bad about the things you haven’t accomplished, the goals you had set for yourself since January but yet still haven’t made any effort to execute. It’s so easy to get caught up on social media and envious about other people’s performance. There’s no reason to envy other people’s blessings when your blessing has been sitting face to face with you everyday. My question for you today is what are you doing with your time? Are you someone that procrastinates and put assignments to the side, saying I will do it tomorrow? Has that tomorrow turned into a year? If so what are you willing to sacrifice to execute your goals?
Time management! Something that many of us don’t take seriously. We make excuses of how we don’t have time and how we are so busy. Maybe the things you are busy doing isn’t producing any fruit. You can busy just sitting down watching reality TV shows. You can be busy working on a book. There’s a huge difference here. You’ve got to evaluate your definition of business. If you don’t learn how to manage your time now, it will affect you later on in life when you’ve got major things to do and certain roles to play. Discipline is a key factor in why people can’t manage their time. By the grace of God, we are given 24 hours in a day. What you do with your time is up to you. If you refuse to plant, you can’t be upset when harvest time comes and there’s nothing at hand because you were being lazy. You’ve got to do your part. There are dreams that God has given you that need to become reality. Don’t sleep on your dreams. Pray but do your part. God has given you all that you need (See Matthew 25:14-30). If you need more resources, ask God. That’s something that I’m learning. Don’t keep silent in the presence of the Lord. Tell God what you want and He will give you what you need. Every blessing won’t be packaged the way you want it to be but God ‘s love will be sealed on what He gives. He is the Shepherd and we are His sheep.
2018 is almost over. There’s still time left for you to start on what you said you were going to do. Don’t hesitate. Don’t procrastinate. Start now! Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and give you wisdom on what needs to be done. What are the assignments that God has given you? What are you waiting for? Your excuses won’t get you too far. Don’t bury your dreams quite yet. You are dead. God hasn’t called you home yet. Plant your seed and allow God to water you through the process. Set time aside to work. There’s a time for everything. Sow and reap the harvest later. Harvest time can be anytime. A farmer doesn’t wait to see other people produce before he plants his seed. Oh no. He does his part. It’s time for you to do your part. It’s a new week. Write down your goals. Pray about it and get to work. It’s time to rise up!
The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream. –
Verse To Ponder:
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. -Ephesians 2:10
