Anyone else in disbelief that it’s already mid April?? I feel as if life is flying right before my eyes and March was the prime example. It’s like everything I planned and had goals for shuffled to the background in the busyness of work and fear. Ew.
We’ve all had a to-do list that we were psyched to accomplish but then fell short due to time, lack of energy, motivation, and/or apprehension. This in turn may not affect us at all or it may reveal the consequences for not using the gift of time wisely. God showed me this at work exactly one week ago. It was a slap in the face. At that moment on I couldn’t help but think what could have happened and the possible blessings if I had did what God was telling me to do. Instead, I flat out questioned and eventually ignored Him. I heard Him but didn’t act. I didn’t do anything. The amazing thing was that God still used my doubt, fear, and disobedience and blessed me in a different way. It was an incredible lesson. One word: grace.
God never intended for us to live a life of hesitation and cold feet. He has each and every one of our futures in the palm of His hands but we must perform. Execute. Work. The one thing we don’t have enough is is time. We can’t buy or earn more but we can manage it. Time is a form of grace and love. So isn’t each passing moment including this one right now special? Whatever you felt are called to do, JUST DO IT! (Thanks, Nike).
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15-17)
