“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;  a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV)

“Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time.”

(Colossians 4:5 ESV)

I never seem to have enough time to get everything done that I want to. There’s 24 hours in a day. I only sleep 6 to 7 of those hours. So that leaves me 16 to 17 hours to get things done. If you take, say 2 hours, to fix food and eat, that still leaves me enough time to get things done.

I’m retired so I don’t have to go to work. But I still don’t get everything done I want to in a given day. But one thing I make time for is God. I will always find time for Him. Due to a health issue, I sleep in a recliner in the livingroom. My Bible is next to my chair. I read my Bible before I get up for the day. Unless my bladder is screaming at me, that is.

God should be front and center in our lives. But there are times we let the world come in and push God aside. It’s time we made God a priority instead of worldly things.

Let’s all take time each day to thank God for another day. Thank Him for everything. It will make you feel good if you do. Remember to make time for God and others. It’s starting to get chilly, remember to check on the elderly. You may be the only one who does.

Have a blessed day everyone.
