It is a beautiful, hot summer July day in Texas and this weekend we will be hitting 100 degrees. So far this summer we have had some much-needed rain for a few weeks there, but now it’s time for watering and mowing in the heat.
When school was out the first of June, I was expecting a big slow down, but it has not happened and it looks like every single day has something. What’s up? Church, Bible Studies, parties, getting things repaired around the house like new doors, oil changes, automobile recalls, remodeling a pool, lots of watering to replace grass lost from the drought, new flowers and plants that need more water, putting up peaches from our trees, family reunions, mowing, etc.. I thought to myself in June that July will be slower, hold on July is coming – it’s here and every beautiful day is booked, and now so is August and then school.
So how do I stay flexible and bending and happy with busy schedules and a “to do” list that is not completed. As I thought about that this morning, I pondered on how does God want me to spend my days and am I reflecting Him in what I do each day.
Time is not mine. It is time that God blessed me with, so how can I honor Him with how I spend my seconds? How can I prioritize according to God’s plan – God first and others and myself second?
I asked myself this morning why my “to do” list for June did not get completed, and maybe it was because it was three 8.5 x 11 pages, but as I look over it I accomplished a lot. So much is happening that some days I can’t even seem to touch that “to do” list.
So be careful how you act; these are difficult days. Don’t be fools; be wise: make the most of every opportunity you have for doing good. Ephesians 5:15-16
