If I kept a journal of how I spent my time, it might look something like this: Laid around fighting to get out of the bed (35 min), stared at the TV (2hrs), checked and re-checked my twitter (40 min)–you get the idea. Granted, these aren’t the only things I do in a day, but they are those heinous, life-sucking, depression inducing time-wasters. And somehow, when they creep their way into my day, I can’t seem to find the time to do all that I plan. I would like to replace that time with things like prayer (1hr), exercise (45 min) homework/reading/study (1 hr), and oddly enough, if I did, there would be time left over to cash in. I know how I victorious I feel after a good workout or after conquering a scriptural question I’d had, and I know how guilty and lazy and spent I feel when I let technology entertain me all day, so why isn’t it easier to choose to spend my time wisely?
I marvel at how much time I really do have.
~Eph 5:15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.~
