Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.Part of me wished I'd known how busy this semester would be. It's not busy-overwhelming, just busy-time consuming. This is what my life has consisted of:
I was chosen for a position at my youth I did not apply for (a total God thing I might share another time), I've been considering being a part of a group with an extreme cause, usual schoolwork & serving my family. And of course, the time I spend with God and/or getting fit is implied.
Emails have been left unanswered & this blog unattended, and for this, I apologize. I just finished Ephesians and my goal for the past weeks or so was to memorize Scripture from my daily time with God. This portion of Scripture is the one I'm focusing on this week. It really puts my responsibilities in perspective, reminding me to make the best use of time; to be diligent.
I encourage you to be wise in your walk today. Time is not by our side and the days we are living are evil! We are bombarded with things that demand our attention, whether that's our phones, social networks, relationships & church responsibilities. We must make an effort not to waste our time. Unfortunately, that may mean I may have to leave this blog unattended while I fulfill my roles offline. It may mean I'm not able to respond to my emails before their deadline because I have a homework deadline for the same day.
Redeeming time means giving up pleasure before the profit of opportunities.
