Time Management and My December Beast

C.J. Mahaney says "Busyness does not mean I am diligent; busyness does not mean I am faithful; busyness does not mean I am fruitful."

Well that's not a very encouraging quote is it???? But it can be true. We may be up early and up late and exhausted yet still be buried under a to-do list that is a replica of yesterday's because whatever was on the list did not get done. This is my case. I don't know if I procrastinated or have been too busy doing other important things - but for some reason I am living the movie "Ground Hogs Day" everyday! Every day I think - "I still need to get those cards in the mail. I still need to bake cookies. I still need to wrap presents." and everyday those items stay on the to-do list while I do laundry, go to concerts, parties, school plays, grocery shop and clean!
The December schedule has been a beast and in 7 short days I will have conquered it. Vince Lombardi once said "I never lost a game, I just ran out of time.”
Time is of the essence now and the to-do list has to be checked off; therefore, I can see late nights looming in my future unless I buckle down and get serious about time management for the next week.
All of my time is God's time. My life is his and yet he has given me this time to manage. We all have equal hours in a day and though we feel free to use them freely as we wish - one day we will give an account for how we spent our time.
Psalm 39:4 and 5 read "Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man's life is but a breath."

Remember - life is fleeting. It's easy for us women to get bent out of shape over clutter and undone to-do lists. But we must remember "our life is but a breath". Use every minute for God's glory. Do not become impatient and grumpy with your family members over an undone to-do list.
Does anyone else still feel like they have a beast to conquer? Let's pray for each other and remember to walk in the Spirit as we work diligently to complete our to-do lists!

"Work is love made visible."

Walk with the King!
