I can remember a time when I relocated for a job promotion and while adjusting to the move things had gotten a little mumble jumbled with my time schedule. And in the jumble I have to be honest when I say that some of my heart to hearts with God had suffered in the process. However, I have always been a firm believer that we make time for the things we want to make time for or the things that are important to us.
To further confirm this, while watching the television show Underground the one night (a show about a group of slaves trying to get to freedom). The Holy Spirit pointed something out to me in the episode. When the slaves were done for the day and had their “down time” with their families in the evening one of the slaves said to his wife “Come on it’s time for us to read our scriptures.”
And that’s when it hit me. They had been out there in the hot sun all day long picking cotton and getting yelled at and at the end of the day still made time to spend with God. So what’s my excuse? Because I clearly ain’t been picking nobody’s cotton! But I made time to watch them do it on T.V.!
I can only speak for myself when I say that in the busyness of life it is imperative that we remember to keep our time that we spend with God as a priority. I know sometimes this can be difficult because life can get crazy busy but Ephesians 5:15-16 says it like this: “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”
Remember we make time for the things we want to make time for and if God makes time to breathe life into us each day then the least we could do is make time to say thank you!
