  1. For me, i have to look in the mirror and ask why not? Why don’t I do what is right for my heart? Ultimately time-wasters are mere excuses. A cover-up. I do what I value.I have to lead myself, no one else can do it for me. So the “why” question is huge. So I ask myself, why is this such a problem? Really? What is really keeping me from doing this? I have to answer those questions and make changes or look back at life with regret.The rewards are great.  Oh, btw don’t to hard on yourself. 😉 

    • Ha ha, my Pastor knows me so well!   “Ultimately time-wasters are mere excuses.”  This caused me to stop and ponder.  It’s a hard truth to swallow but so true!  I hope my post didn’t sound harsh on myself.  Just sharing my heart. 🙂

  2. This is great Barbie!  Especially after going through the Song of Songs class.  I want to spend more of my time with my beloved!  I am pursuing Him with a Body that is pursuing Him, it helps with the encouragement that comes from seeing and hearing others that are after the same thing 🙂

  3.  Isn’t it funny how we find the time to do things that aren’t necessary but the one part of our day, that time with the Lord, falls so easily by the wayside?  I get so frustrated with myself when I do that!  Very inspiring post:)

    • I know exactly this struggle Michelle.  The neat thing about God is tomorrow is a new day.  So it’s “try try again”.  But it does take some sacrifice on my part.  Am I willing to do that?  My heart says “yes” but I fail so many times.

  4. so good.  i get so easily distracted and need to have constant reminders like this one to turn my heart back to pursuing Him with my time as many times as i mess up.   any time i get with Him is worth it – so much more fulfilling then all the many distractions.

    • Yes! My heart and my head tell me that He is the only thing that satisfies, yet I am pulled in so many other directions. It’s good that our hearts are yearning.  A very good place to be.

  5.  love Psalm 24.4 …. great post. Learning to capture, celebrate and cherish the everyday moments…the ordinary and the extraordinary.

  6.  these are great thoughts.  the Lord is teaching me about 
    being humble of spirit.  so much to learn, so much to lay
    down, so much to gain.

  7.  Yes God has been talking to me a lot about the use of my idle time….also, having good steal from what is best.  I think it is a constant battle or the enemy wouldn’t put so much effort into distracting us.  I also think aging makes us  more aware of it…I don’t see my young adults giving time much of a consideration.
