"Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch, but the diligent make use of everything they find."

How might you turn your time and your tasks into treasure today?


Father, today I ask that you would help me see how to diligently make use of my time, and how to treasure that time as a gift from you. Amen.

To really take advantage of treasuring our time, We have to make a genuine decision to do so before we even start our day Before any task or adventure or cherished family moments, i have found that I need to pray before each thing to ask God to help me get the most out of it and to be able to retain this memory And later on in life I can better recall things from the past because a determined effort has to be made or things will fade away endlessly. This is especially true as we age. I can look back to my high school and college years and wish I had practiced better ways to ingrain things Into my memory. Things just become one big lump of years where nothing stands out. But by purposely acknowledging God in every situation and purposely referring back to our memories in our minds, these are more sure ways to treasure our memories. Also this can be paralleled with answered prayers. Some of us keep a notebook of records of answered prayers. It's a good idea to write a brief description of the situation next to the recording and these special times will be treasured in our memories all the more.
My time is in Your keeping, so help me to make the most of what is allotted to me for Your name's sake.
Debra - We are praying for your entire family today!
Thank you for this urgent reminder!! Lord, please help me to be diligent in all I do, treasuring the time bringing You glory and honour.
Goodness, circumstances can get so overwhelming sometimes and it’s the little things too, but laziness is hard to fight off. I have so much to do in the next few days. And everything is a blessing, but I don’t get great sleep and I get so tired. Off to work this morning. Please pray God will give me stamina and strength to do it all well and be the blessing I desire to be!
Thank you, all!
So beautiful, this verse I think this is talking about me when I wake up in the morning n see a beautiful weather that our Lord has provided, I will make sure I do something worthwhile, I am not boasting, I am just saying what my personality is like......
