It is amazing how many times I hear people, including myself, talk about the lack of time. It seems that time has almost become non-existent in this fast-paced world we live in. We have jobs, and families, and hectic running back and forth only to find ourselves still short on accomplishment at the end of the day. Our children lack for attention, our homes as well, yet we fling ourselves on a couch for some TV or before a computer to type out our frustrations on Facebook, or Twitter. It will be quick right? And then a video on Facebook directs us to Youtube and Youtube suggests a video that gets us searching and before long an hour (maybe two) has passed. An hour wasted in a world short on hours.
What is your biggest time waster? Mine? The computer. It is too easy to allow the time to pass and things around the house to go undone. My scheduled writing time frequently turns into internet time, and I leave the computer feeling very unaccomplished. But it is my fault. I lack self-discipline. How do you gain it? Practice! Self-discipline is a habit that needs to be developed, and practiced. It's a conscious decision to limit yourself, and you must! Turn those hours of wasted time into productive time and I guarantee you will find that God, in fact, did create enough hours in a day.
It's not to late to make that New Year's resolution. Set some limits and gain some hours!
