One of the things I have been thinking about lately is how precious time is. My life quote that speaks so much to me is “Make today count!”
Psalm 91:12 says Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 39:4- Show me,Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.
If I live to be 100 years old (which is what I am hoping for!) that means I get to live 1,200 months, 62,400 weeks, 436,800 days, 10,483,200 hours, 628,992,000 minutes. I am not quite halfway to 100 but this is sobering to think of my life in this way.
Really what this does is motivate me to fully embrace my life here on this earth, so that I do not waste the gifts that God has given me. Instead I desire that I would be like the faithful servant in the parable of the talents (Mathew 25) and invest those talents so that they would multiply, and when the Master returns He would have found me faithful with what I have been given.
One of the things that I have found to be very helpful for me is to sit and make a plan for how I spend my time and consider how I am taking intentional steps towards being faithful with the talents that God has given me.
That is why for 2022 I am committing to trying out a new goal planner that will help me be more intentional with my goals. I have always had goals and love to plan, but I feel that God is leading me towards going even deeper with this. In my next blog post I will give you a more detailed post with a quick review on the goal planner I am using for this year. Stay tuned!
How about you? What are you planning on doing in 2022 to help you be faithful with the talents that God has given you? Drop a comment below and let me know.
