Do you have time? I must hear this question at least 20 times a day. Do you have time to talk? Do you have time to help me? Do you have time to look at this? DO YOU HAVE TIME? Managing my time is something I am constantly working on. There are days when all goes well, and I get my to-do list complete by 10am. Then there are those days when I don’t sit down until 10pm and nothing on my personal to-do list is complete. I’m sure many of you can relate!
In Ecclesiastes 3, we are told there is a time for everything: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”
How comforting it is to know that we have a God who understands our every moment. He understands our crazy moments and our calm moments. All we have to do is rely on Him. Do you have time for that? I pray that you do.
