We are all given a measure of time. Each moment of it is yours to take hold of. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to make the most of the time you have, and the greatest tragedy is the misuse of it.

You may have the most incredible talent that is on the back burner because you don’t make the time to invest in yourself! You may have a yearning to pursue a dream that has fallen to the wayside, because life and all that comes with it eats up the hours of your day.

What do we do? What can we do? We’ve got to take care of the bills, our family, our health. We’ve got to manage the responsibilities when others are dependent on you doing so.

Remember, it is a small step that can alter your future. One moment can be swapped for another. You can choose to write down that business plan instead of sitting in front of the T.V. You can sacrifice that extra half hour of sleep to exercise your body with motion or your spirit with prayer. You can make minor changes in your management of time to plan for a more productive future! The reality is, your tomorrow starts today.

If you feel unproductive, check your time management! Find and pursue a strategy that works for you. Measure out what is most important, and what you feel God is leading you to do, and follow the tempo He has set for you specifically.

If you feel like you’ve wasted too much time, it’s never too late to take claim of the rest of it and turn it into a victory! Don’t let guilt, or regret rob you of tomorrow’s hope.

Seek God for wisdom on how to manage the time you have with the greatest importance and impact. He knows exactly what you need to obtain success in this area and subsequently in every other area of your life. Most of all, remember to invest in what matters most, the things that will live on passing into eternity. He wants you to live in your God-given purpose, and will always direct your path!

“But I am trusting you, O Lord, saying, “You are my God!” My future is in your hands. Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly. Let your favor shine on your servant. In your unfailing love, rescue me. Don’t let me be disgraced, O Lord, for I call out to you for help.” Psalm 31:14-17
