Todays topic is quite a sensitive one, because it is something I have been battling with for the past one month.
I have been really busy for quite some time now, and I was failing at managing my time.
I want to believe I am not alone on this one, and even if I am, it would be nice for me to share my experiences and help someone out there who is trying to figure out how to properly manage their time and not prioritize other things above God.
How do I manage to
*Have quality time with my creator without timing myself because if I don’t, that would be me loosing time.
*keep fit ( I suck at working out at home so going to the gym is really essential for me)
*work 9hrs at my job
*write for my blog and post before the deadline which has been given (for those who do not know, most companies which we bloggers work with, gives us a stipulated time for us to review their items on our blogs.
*Focus on quality and not just quantity pertaining my blog
*Have quality time for myself and the people I love.
*study for my upcoming Exams
These were some of the issues I was faced with, it is a lot but I would stop here.
I somehow managed to make time for all of these things but I was failing in the most important aspect of my life which is HAVING TIME FOR GOD.
BY the time I am eventually done with work for the day, I have dinner and all I can think about is sleeping….. At times I get carried away with some activities which I missed out on during the day and before you know it I AM SLEEPING ALREADY.
It is the next day, I manage to wake up early because I have to, it is time to pray but I am dozing off, I decide to sleep a bit more and time is going.
I quickly wake up, get ready for the gym and the day continues……. The cycle continues….
Maybe your story is similar to mine or worst than mine, you feel like you have lost it completely and you want to get back on track and have that amazing relationship you used to have with God before things took another Turn.
With Gods help I was able to gradually get back on track, I am not fully there but this tips I am about to share has helped me tremendously.
TIP NO 1: ACKNOWLEDGE THERE IS A PROBLEM
If you do not realize there is a problem, how would you get the help that you need?
I had to have a deep conversation with myself and by doing so the need for change sprang up within me.
The first step in solving a problem is being aware that there is a problem and you are left with a decision of either solving the problem or not.
TIP NO 2: THE DEVIL DOES NOT WANT YOU TO PRAY, DO NOT GIVE INTO HIM
The second tip was gotten from one of the bible studies we had in church and it stuck with me. Have you realized that we can go about our day doing things that do not benefit, watch all episodes of a series without blinking an eye, engage in meaningless conversations…..
But when it comes to communing with God in prayers we automatically shut down, we get bored… why so? if we truly love this God.
The devil knows there is so much power, wisdom, strength, revelation when we spend time with God and so he looks for means to distract us.
DO NOT GIVE INTO HIS TRICKS.
TIP NO 3: ASK GOD FOR WISDOM
No one can understand your struggles like God would, so prayerfully ask him for wisdom on what to do in that area which you are failing…..
I WOULD CONTINUE THE TIPS ON THE NEXT BLOG WHICH IS RELATED TO FAITH SO PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THAT.
Be sure to leave your comments and suggestions
Have a great day ahead…..
