Time Isn’t Timeless
When it comes to vagueness, the winner is usually money use for most people, but what about Time use?
While money used to slip through my fingers, once I had a God-approved Spending Plan, I learned to store some in savings for use another day. But, this is not possible with time. God has given each of us the same 24 hours to spend in accordance with His will. Once each hour is gone, it’s gone forever.
So, what is God’s will for me around the use of time? As in my money Spending Plan, my Time Plan has realistic categories for a balanced life. Here are my categories: Spiritual Growth, Recreation, Family and Friends, Work and Goals including money management, Self Care, and Creativity.
Initially, I tracked my time for a week and analyzed it at the end. I was shocked to see Work used up most of my time, while Recreation and Self Care were ignored.
I asked God to rebalance my life. Today, I often reduce items on my to-do list, and add Rest as a time slot. That’s Self Care.
I am a human being, not a human doing.
