Don’t Abuse Time!

“Time is money.” Benjamin Franklin quoted this advice towards a young tradesman. We constantly quote this in our lives but do we really understand the meaning? Time is a valuable resource that we definitely cannot get back.  Therefore, we ought not to abuse it but use it wisely.  We tend to focus on the money aspect and become sidetracked.  How are we going to gain wealth when we do not plan our time carefully? In order for us to achieve, we need to prioritize, stay focus on what we need to accomplish within the day. We recognize that time is getting shorter by the days or I should say by the hours and minutes. The night is coming quickly when no one can work (John 9:4).  This is the obvious truth.  However, in order for us to execute what we intend to do daily, we MUST put it to God in prayer.  Prayer is essential for our daily development.  You would be surprised to see how you will be able to face challenges in your day.  I recognize that having God at the center of my life allows me to achieve any task during the day and within every aspect of my life.  With this, it helps me to plan my time.  So today, I encourage you not to take time lightly. Plan, execute but most of all put it towards God in pray before you start your day.  Use the time we have!

 

Proverbs 16:9 “In their hearts, human plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.”

Tapping into the inevitable…too far-fetched?

Most of us tend to stay in the present state rather than going beyond what we have achieved thus far. Because we are so satisfied with what we have accomplished, we become relaxed. We need to be persistent in exploiting our full potential after we have executed a task; if we don’t consistently exploit our potential we would lose what is really within us. With all that being said, we must put God first in all that we intend to do. Tom Monaghan is a prime example of doing so. He was the founder of Domino’s Pizza in 1960 and later sold his company. In doing so, he spent his time, skills and money contributing to the Roman Catholic and developed the Ave Maria University. Let us all continuously unlock our gifts, talents, and abilities. Nothing is impossible with God. Tap into the inevitable!

Genesis 11:6 And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.”

Moving Ahead

“The past doesn’t determine your future.” That quote has been with me for many years. However, I believe that your past guides you to the CORRECT path where God wants you to be. For instance, I thought I knew what love was in my younger days but little did I know. As I became older and wiser, I recognized that God is love; he loves us unconditionally. We as human beings love conditional; we base love on our feelings which can eventually change. The closest unconditional love that we have is towards our children. In understanding all that God has done for us, helped me through life’s love and the crossroads. This steered me towards a wonderful man of God with whom I can express my love for God with. God does not choose a partner for us, he guides us towards that person.

1John 4:19 “We love because he first loved us.”
