The last few months have been a crazy busy time. I am sure they have been for you also. Does life ever slow down? Or do we have to take the time to slow it down ourselves? I think that part of finding peace in this life is using our time wisely. Over the past few months, I have not been planning my day as I had been in the past. Since then I have noticed a trend towards chaos, and busyness.
Our God is a God of order, and I believe that just as He wants us to tithe our money, He also wants us to tithe our time. Gen 2:1-3, Proverbs 6:6-11, Colossians 4:5
During the days in which I am diligent about scheduling things, I notice that time moves at a more manageable and peaceful pace. But when I get up and rush through the day with no plan, it sets me up for a much more stressful and frantic day.
I need to covenant personally to be more diligent with my time management. As a friend said this past weekend in his sermon, "Let's redeem our time for God."

In Scripture there is a word used, "Steward" This is an old word, but essentially it means, the manager of the owner's things.
God has called us to be stewards of what he gives us. He definitely gives us time. Let's use it to glorify Him.
Journal: Write down three specific ways that you could do a better job of managing your time.
Prayer: God teach me today, to use my time wisely for you. Teach me to schedule my priorities around yours. Help me to plan out my day, and to glorify you in all that I do.
