I often hear myself and people say, “I don’t have time to do this or that…” It seems like it’s a common excuse or a sickness perhaps with more people wishing they had “more time”.
It’s hard making a schedule and sticking to one, but I learned that no matter how hard you try to plan things, it won’t always turn out the way you planned.
Was there a shift in work schedule? An unexpected call? A visitor just happened to drop by? These are all a product of having time. Having time doesn’t mean your free. Human as we are, we always would want to fill up our day with the things that satisfy us, not unless we’re too tired or lazy to do anything!
Time has always been on our side, it has never changed or ever stopped turning, shouldn’t we turn with it and not against it?
Imagine holding the famous “Time Turner” from Harry Potter as shown in the picture.
Are you thinking of the things you want to go back and do differently? There’s a lot of regrets there, and that’s a waste of time thinking and doing something to change it. It’s already been done, but “you have more time to do better than the past.” You have time, don’t waste it thinking of what could have been done yesterday, spend it by thinking of today, what good can come out of today? You’ll see when you live for the moment, breathe and relax; time is in your hands. Produce something good out of it, and time will be kind enough to give you more!
Deuteronomy 4:39-40, NKJV: “Therefore you shall keep his statutes and his commandments, which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land that the Lord your God is giving you for all time.”
Look to the Divine Maker, who hold your time.
