In many ways we are daily in a fight for our lives. There are so many choices that present themselves to us each and every day, many of which can distract and derail us from what is most important. The biggest factor that determines whether we stay on track with life or go down some rabbit hole of distraction and disruption is simply...me. Yup, I am the decision maker - the gatekeeper of my own mind and body - and I alone have final say as to what kind of victory or what kind of defeat I will experience. Now, wait a minute! As a Christian shouldn’t I be subject to the will of God through Christ? Absolutely! Then why am I saying that I am in control? It’s simple! I decide how much influence the will of God will exercise in my life at any given moment and that makes ME my worst enemy! Great! Now what do we do? What do we do? We learn how to identify, fight and win the battle!
We never seem to have enough time - to do the important things, that is. As Christians, what should we be doing with our time? What shouldn’t we be doing with our time? Is leisure time bad? Is TV bad? ...E-mail, texting, tweeting? ...Checking the sports scores, listening to our favorite music – good? Bad? Does it matter? Did the Apostles' lives provide examples for time management? Is our time really THAT important? Stay with us as we journey through the challenges of managing one of those things that we have a say over and yet rarely speak up about – our time!
