We all know life can be a big rush. Well, not now during the pandemic, but some of us could barely make room in our schedules for a cup of tea or whatever your morning wake me up is that helps to get your day started. Many of us have our schedules pinned on the brain. We are getting the kids ready, making sure the husband is out the door, planning dinner in our head, oh and remembering to bath and dress ourselves. We can be so focused on managing the life that God gives us that we forget to include the one who gave it. Jesus is the head of the family. He is the creator, the giver, provider, protector; and has the best time management expertise you will ever come across. He is best way to get your day started. He comes along and gives direction and wisdom in managing the work of our lives with the most effective results. This is a recruit call for those looking to decipher through the malfunction mornings, over stimulated afternoons, and restless evenings. Let the Lord lead you and show you what he can do with your time, talents, and teasures. Let him guide you through handling what has been given to you. Everything we do we ought to do to the glory of God. We should praise him, give thanks, and be grateful with no complaints; but instead asking for what we need and help in times of difficulty. God knows how to bring us to handle what he has given us. He is a wonderful couselor and excellent in wisdom- Isaiah 28:29. He is able to produce and without leading any astray. He is the one who will bring you through the fire without getting burned- Isaiah 43:2. Time is not to be wasted nor mismanaged, neither is our relationship with the only wise and ever omnipresent Savior.
Currently, there are many people who are struggling with time and taking care. Sometimes spending time with the ones you love is the best time spent. God uses us in our very own homes. He knows what the heart needs in seasons of loneliness. Be open to new and available to being used to promote life, health, and healing. Look aroud you and ask the Lord to open your eyes and show you what is needed at this time. God will be pleased and he will answer you. He will bring you to the work in which he wants you to do. It could simply be checking on a neighbor, walking someone’s dog, or interceding for someone in prayer. Listen for God’s voice. Be patient, open, and available. He will do the rest, so let’s do our part as chosen vessels.
Hebrews 13:16 Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
