Food For Thought

Greetings My Friends;
Have you ever thought about what is important to you? An easy way to find out, is to take a look at what you do with your time. I'm talking about the time you don't spend at work.
It is easy to find out where you are, and where you are going. If you are honest with yourself, you will see things that will probably change your life. Here are some things to think about.
How much time do you spend following sports? You probably realize if you do spend quite a bit of time with sports, you will be very familiar with how players and teams perform. When you are with your friends, you will be almost like an expert.
Ladies there are things in your life that are probably just as important to you. Getting together with friends to talk about what interests the group may be one of them.
As you look at what you do, make a list of what your activity is each day, and mark down the time spent with it. I am not talking about a complicated thing. For instance; gym – two hours including travel time. Make an honest list for say two weeks to a month. It doesn't take much time to make the list, so don't give yourself the worn-out excuse that you don't have time to do it.
Next take a look at the things in your life that aren't quite right. Marriage and family, are you happy? Take a look at the list and see how much time you devote to family. That will probably give you a good clue. If the answer bothers you, remember you can change it.
When you add up the activities and time spent, you will see a picture of your life. You can figure out what to adjust in order to have a better life. Your kids will turn out the way you mold them. Ignore them and you can get bad results, love them and they are a joy.
If you are honest, you have some time for everything in your life. Just manage your time better. Even if you have to get up a half hour earlier to do something worthwhile, do it.
By the way does your list include time with the Lord? Read a chapter of the Bible every day, and if possible spend a little quiet time with the Lord. If God is not apparent in your life, check your list to see if you put Him in your life..
I don't think anyone needs to tell you that you will be best at whatever you devote your time and effort to. Your activity chart tells you where you are, it doesn't have to be a map of the future. With God all things are possible. Change your life now, and arrange your priorities as to what is most important in life.
God Bless You And Remember
 Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation;
"Oh God in Heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen"
