Time is so important, life is so important and we as humans tend to waste it. We waste our time running after money, success, and all the material things in life and we forget about the really important things such as our families and friends. We forget about God. We think we have so much time and that we can put God, family and friends aside until later. We need to achieve our goals first. SHOCKING!
Quite depressing isn’t it? Definitely.
I can easily say that I want to reach my dreams, being a famous writer, but that is not the most important thing suddenly. The most important thing that I want to achieve is restitution with my family, friends and neighbors. I want to appreciate them, love them, and spoil my kids. I want to live close to God and learn as much about Him as I possibly can. I want to make a difference and I want to be different.
The only way to achieve this is to bend my knees and to pray, pray and pray. I am the one who needs to change. I want Father God to start with me because if I am healed and whole then I can reach out to others. My life is broken and in shambles and I need to sort myself out before God before I can even consider making a difference. I am not going to waste any more time. I need to focus on the Word of God and really need to work with Him so that I can be healed and whole.
Thereafter I want to live the rest of my life the way He wants me to live. I want my family to remember me as a great mom and a true Child of God. I don’t want to be remembered as a broken person. I want to stand up and be the best me that I possibly can be. I know this will take time to achieve but I also know that I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who loves me.
