As a child, my parents were always telling me to “hurry up”.
When I was at school, I wished there was more time in the day so that I could play and complete my studies (Note: emphasis on play, not study).
As an adult, there is always something that needs to be done and I feel like I am always rushing from one thing to the next.
It doesn’t matter how old we are, or what stage of life we are at, we seem to fill up our day with lots of different things.
Time is precious, and we need to use our time wisely.
For me, this means ensuring there is enough time to do the things that I need to do (such as writing something for Rob’s column), as well as having time for the important things. Important things like spending time with my family, doing the relaxing activities that I enjoy and most importantly spending time with God.
I think that most of us would agree, that at different stages of our lives, it can be hard to keep that balance as we juggle all the things that we do. But I want to encourage us to make sure that we keep spending time with God.
Spending time with God is important, because the more time we spend with God, (instead of with our TV, ipad or tablet), the closer our will is transformed to match God’s will.
The challenge for each of us, is to ensure that we don’t replace our time with God with other less important tasks!
God Bless – Rob
