From Jim’s Heart–Using Time Well

The sooner we realize that life is but a vapor (James 4:14), the more likely we are to make sure we are using our time well.

That doesn’t mean you can’t take time to have fun and relax. Rather, it means making sure you have your priorities in order. At the top of the list is your spiritual health. That’s because it affects everything else you do. When things are right between you and God and you’re spending time in His Word, that will help you align the rest of your priorities properly. That means caring for your family, managing your finances wisely, maintaining good physical health, giving your best on the job, and serving others in your church. When you’ve taken care of these priorities, you can be confident you are using your time well.

Father, do my priorities bring glory to You? Do they help me make the most of my short time on this earth–and of each day? Help me evaluate my priorities and quickly make any necessary adjustments. Amen.

Spiritual Nutrition

If you’ve put off your quiet time with God lately, think of regular time in God’s Word like you do nutrition: It’s absolutely necessary to maintain a healthy life. It’s so easy to start your day planning to have a devotional time—a little later. Yet a little later never happens! Suddenly you’re off and running, because you failed to set aside the time for the most important relationship in your life

Can you relate? That’s why you have to have regular scheduled times with God whether you feel like it or not. You might feel like you don’t have the time to spare. And if you feel like that, you need it more than ever. Jesus says that as you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you (James 4:8). What a great promise! Do what you need to do to make it happen, to get the spiritual nutrition you need.

God, I know my time with You is essential to my spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness. Jesus, You are the bread of life. Help me live out the psalmist’s cry: “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek you; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You” (Psalm 63:1). Amen.
