We all have to learn to manage our time at some point in our lives. As we get older we have more things that take time in our lives and we need to know what is important and what can wait. When we are younger it is all about getting our homework on time but as we get older there are more things that take our time. We have work to do, we have children to attend, we have dinner to make, we have chores to do- the list is always endless and our energy seems to wain as we do get older. We all have to set time aside to do the things that we need to get done in a 24 hour period and we need to manage what needs to be done and what can wait until another time. It is hard but we have to take time and we have to learn to take time. We have to learn that some things take more time than others and that is okay.
We need to take time to talk to other people, to take time for ourselves, to take time for our family, to take time for our hobbies. All things in our life take time but we only have limited time in our life to do the things that we need to do. We put things to tomorrow but as we all know tomorrow never comes! We all hope that we can do things as soon as possible but the clock ticks and we find that we don’t have time to do the things that we need to do. Time ticks by and before we know it, it is bedtime! It is hard to give quality time to those things that we need to do and those things that we want to do. We have little time to do so many things in a good way and do it in a good quality. It can be frustrating when we do not have the time and we cannot do it in good quality.
There is time in life that we need to work, that we need to rest, that we need to enjoy family time, that we need time to rest, that we need time to exercise, that we need time to be a couple, that we need time to love, that we need time to serve, that we need time to cook, that we need time to travel. Looking at that list we have so much to do each and everyday. Life can be overwhelming and lists can be endless and we can struggle with time to just be ourselves. With the pressures of life and relationships it can be hard to take time. We need to take time to be able to be ourselves, be with family and be with friends. We should not make the worldly things more important than the things that we need and want to do. We should be willing to change our way and to have patience and love with the things that are happening.
Everyday we have time to make a difference in other peoples life. We can choose to take time to be our family but we need to realise that our jobs can wait but we need to have time with those people that we love. We need to stop investing time in the worldly things and the things that could go away. Life is short and people will leave our life before we can blink so it is important to have time with them. We need to save time each day to spend with those people that we love and those people that we don’t see very often. We all need to take time to love those people around us and to do the things that we will regret later on in life. There will be times when we do not have time in the day to even think but we need to have time with those people. We need to take time! No matter what happens in our day take time to breathe and move on.
We have time in our day to look at social media, to check our emails, to watch TV, to be with the children, to be with children but do we have time for God? When was the last time you put God to the front of your brain and wanted to spend time with Him? We always make time for other things and it is good to have time with those people we love but we need to have time for God as He is the one who created u and He is the One who has and will help us through whatever life throws at us.
