If you've been dropping by here very long you must know I "seize the day" with gusto. I love life, people and find the tiniest things most fascinating. This makes for great living, but focus and staying on the main thing at the right time is my calling.
Time, Talent, And Treasure...!!! All that I have is gift. God, Himself, is a generous Creator, who has graced me with life today. He calls me to Thrive. No government entitlement holds my life. I never want to casually look at this great gift of life and misuse it.
God has given you and me assets of Time, Talent, and Treasure to use for the advancement of His Kingdom: to spread His love in places where it seems not to exist...
H has chosen us to participate in His great work of LIFE, and looks to us to become dependable stewards of the Bank of Heaven from which all treasures flow...!!!
So I throw these 3 T'words out today: God has filled the Bible with words of wisdom on how He calls us to spend our time. He spends equal words warning us of the consequences we may face if we ignore His calling. I welcome this challenge. I have been in similar positions, but I was younger. That would greatly concern me, but this time I'm not juggling the role of wife and mother of young children. I'm ready for this work with only me and my companion dog to care for.
Open up Your people in a time that life seems to clutter our minds and our lives. I pray to hear You on what pleases You in my use of time, talent and treasure. I have life itself eternally because You graced me with the gifts of gifts. I pray for Your revelation for excellence in stewardship of time, talent and treasure in 2009. Touch Your people where they need to hear You on best use of all You have given them. I thank You, that You chose to have me live in such a time as this. I know many will seek You; keep me close so that You will shine through me and they will See YOU!!!
For a few weeks I will be referring to my favorite book of time use for Christians: It's About Time by Ken Smith ISBN 13: 9780842317320
It doesn't have to be that way. Christian Stewardship Ministries can help!
