This concept is one that has existed long before us and will exist long after. Time is eternal in both directions, yet we never seem to have enough of it. It goes on whether we want it to or not.
We try to take it into our own hands only to be faced with the reality that ‘time’ cannot be tamed. Since ‘time’ is so far beyond our control, what would happen if we left it in the hands of the One who created it? The One who dwelt in the beginning of time and eternity? The ultimate timekeeper? What would our lives look like if we sacrificed our time to be with the One who sacrificed His life to be with us?
Out of all the ways we can choose to use our time, we most commonly, and sometimes subconsciously, result to wasting it. We waste time complaining and worrying about the inevitable; the things we can’t control. We procrastinate our responsibilities or use the present time to stress about our future. Why? None of theses methods are effective in changing our circumstances, and they often bring us further from peace and a solution.
I personally, have found that the best way to spend my time is by giving it to God. When I abide in Him, He gives me His peace and clarity in return. I find rest in knowing that He holds the future, and that in HIS timing, all things will work out for good. That sweet surrender allows me to live a life full of joy and freedom. Time spent with the Lord is never time wasted.
