A Little Bit of This

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

I've been thinking about being more intentional with my time. 

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am young and people are always asking me what I DOOOOO. 

First it was, where are you going to college? 

When I announced that I was pursuing a degree in education the questions centered around (and still do) - where are you going to apply for a job? 

This doesn't look like much....But it is an old foundation that I found on a hike once. Sometimes our foundations don't look all that impressive, but God knows what this was and He knows what we will be.
Summer is here and so the questions will ease up a little, but people are continually poking and prodding at the younger people to figure out what we are doing with our lives. 

That's fine. Usually, it doesn't even bother me at all. 

But, it does get me thinking.

I don't need to be what they want me to be. 

What I need to do is spend my time so that I am always becoming the person God wants me to be. 

I try to spend my time on things that I believe help me to become that person and share His love and truth with those around me. 

So, let's be intentional with our days and our answers to these questions.

It takes days well spent to make up a life that is lived well. 

Piper's mantra is "Don't waste your life". 

God used that man to help me see what a life that wasn't wasted will look like.

By His grace, we can and will have lives that weren't wasted! 

It all starts today.....

Let's do it!


  1. This week began with just such a resolution for me, and my days are crammed full now with edifying learning--not just busy-ness. I fall into bed tired, but satisfied!

  2. love John Piper. it's so true... time is valuable and a gift, to be used wisely. i think about God's word and it says to teach us to number our days. that has really been floating in my brain lately. i'm convicted, too, about my time.
