On Time

Updated: Aug 2, 2021

It seemed only days ago when I blogged that we have already begun the second half of 2021, and it seems that the holidays are just around the corner.

And this weekend is a new month!

I don't know what's with me and time. It's something that preoccupies my being. "How have I used my day?" "Am I on track with my schedule?" I want to be able to do a lot of things given the time I have. I've wondered why this consumes me a lot.

Last Tuesday, one of the ministries at our church had an evening talk about time management. Mrs. Pontrelli said that according to Marshall J. Cook's book, it is very easy to lose time. Some of the reasons that we waste time are not planning, prioritizing busy matters than urgent ones, not working efficiently, taking on too many activities, clutter control, and indecision. These days, a lot of it is social media.

As I pondered on the information about better time management, I realized that I don't want to waste any of it because time is a limited and non-renewable resource. When it is gone, it's gone.

And why should this matter? Digging deeper made me realize that whatever I do, be it the simplest and most mundane work, as long as it is done for our Lord, is precious time. It's one way of giving thanks.

And using my time wisely will enable me to transform wasted time to precious time.
