New Year Resolution 2013
In honor of You God, I give You my time. This gift is precious and I am reminded that each moment of my life can bring purpose and meaning. I want to inhale Your Discernment and exhale Your Truth. As I go forward through each day, may I ask in every moment…
Is this worthy of my time?
Do I spend my time wisely? Each choice I make matters. Would You approve with my plan or could I do better.
Do the days fly by without a moment spent with You?
Do the weeks blur together in a hurried state of clutter?
Am I taking each turn that shapes my life, in a thoughtful manner?
Am I giving of myself the way You want me to?
Am I living each day immersed in You?
Or am I selfishly sliding inward and slacking on Your gift.
Do I care for each person that You place in my life?
Do I reach those who need You, during times of suffering?
Will I make the time to still my heart and listen to what You say?
Or do I just ramble on to You in those hurried fleeting ways…
Oh I long for time. It’s withered through the years. I want so much to stop it and to pause to see if those moments mattered. I want to look to You and find Your Plan and Power. I need to thread my day in Your Wisdom and learn of Your Wishes. It is my desire, Oh Lord… to make my time worthy…
Each day I will start with this question. And I will walk through each moment and find significance in the gift of time You give to me.
I will pray that this treasure is not wasted, on things that don’t last. I will hope that my investments are deep and full of purpose in Your Plan. I will not stray from my mission. I will find peace in each new choice. The time You give to me, Lord… I will in Thanksgiving, give back to You. I will listen to Your Whispers and feel Your Nudges that lead me within and help define each moment of every day.
And I will ask over and over again…
“Is this worthy of my time, Lord?”
And I will listen for Your Reply…
