Getting Ready…waste not.
Time is a gift from God to me. Once today’s time is gone, I can never get it back.
The river of life never flows backward…only forward…and it does not take a rest.
I entered eternity when I said “YES” to Jesus in my heart.
I gave Him all because He already gave His all to me.
I know that he made me for a special purpose He has.
I can only walk in that purpose (that carries my highest potential as a person) if I am listening and responding to Christ’s leading through the Holy Spirit.
When I waste time, I am wandering away and choosing to reject the One who made me and seeks my best all the time. I am choosing to turn a deaf ear from the One who perfectly cares about me and thinks loving thoughts about me all the time.
When the Holy Spirit shows me this, I can cry out for grace
to run back to Jesus and repent because I missed Him and
want to please Him and have unbroken fellowship with Him.
Out of love, I surrender all of myself and time resources to Him once again.
In these preparation days, I desperately need to stay mindful of the gift of time God has given me and monitor whether I am investing it or wasting it. In eternity, I will want to say that I am so glad I made this choice now before it was too late.
Jesus, I choose You…now and always. Help me prize the time You have given me as a precious gift to love You.
