Making Use of Time

Time, it's the one thing we have that once is lost cannot be regained. We each have a set number of days, an allotted amount of time.

The reality is...life is short, death can come unexpectedly and eternity is forever. Each and every one of our days need to be lived with those three things in mind.

Man's days are determined, you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed  Job 14:5

Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom  Psalm 90:12

your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be  Psalm 139:16

I have said many times that I wanted to live my life without regrets. I don't want to come to the end of my days and wish I had made different choices. My heart has been burdened for the last couple of months about the importance of using my time for his purposes, and to make the most of opportunities. He has been reminding me that the doors that are open today may quickly shut and opportunities could be lost. My prayer Lord, is to give me more sense of the eternal when making decisions today

That one last sentence says so much. May the Lord hear your prayer, and may I pray this same prayer in ernest today and in the days ahead.

You have spoken the desire of my own heart also and I seem to be wasting time too much...thanks for the reminder...I need to be more intentional about my time.

We should all begin each day with that very prayer. We let ourselves get busy and sidetracked and pulled into the priorities of the world when we need to remember that when He orders our day there is blessed peace and true accomplishment. Thanks for the reminder dear sister.
