How many times do a lot of us find ourselves making these statements? “Sorry, I just don’t have the time.” “I just can’t do it right now because there’s not enough time.” “I’ll do it later when I have more time.” When we say things like that, are they true?
We all have the same amount of time each day to use as we choose. What if we were to proactively say the things that are more honest? “I have the time; I just don’t want to do that right now. It’s not a priority for me.” “I could do that, but I’m choosing not to.” I’ve decided not to do that at this time.”
What if we were to commit to use our time differently?
“I am going to pray and read the Bible daily.”
“I am going to worship each week.”
“I am going to serve others in some way each week.”
“I am going to prioritize time playing with my kids each week.”
“I am going to spend quality time with my spouse actually talking about important things three times a week.”
“I am going to exercise three times a week.”
“I am going to meaningfully connect with friends each month.”
“I am going to ______.” (You fill in the blank.)
We have the time to do what we commit to do. What will you choose to do with your time?
