I woke up Sunday morning, thinking I was late for church.

Saturday was super stressful though, packing and seeing my grandparents off to the airport.

It was 9:33 am and quite unusual for me to wake up at this time. I leaped off the bed with a start and set out to brush my teeth. Then I remembered that from today, (March 13, 2016), time in the US will leap forward 1 hour until November 6, 2016. They call it Daylight saving or Spring forward.

I was still late though and still ached from the previous day’s stress, but it’s all good.


Despite the fact that the measure of time varies across cities, states and countries, and over history, different modifications have been done by the chronologists, one thing remains and never changes –

The quantity of time!

Each one of us has a gift of 24 hours every day of our lives, each minute of which we shall account for. Regardless of how much we tweak its measurement and vary it along geographical lines, the quantity of time will not change a second. And time will not wait.

Remember today:

“Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness.”

Many people live carelessly, unthinkingly. And it has resulted in the damage we have today. But you have got to watch your step each day. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!

The only sure way to make the most of time is to make sure you understand what the Lord wants. That is God’s will for your life.

“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.”

Seeking God and keeping in step with His purpose for your life is the true way to make your time count. Let that purpose determine your priorities and regulate your day-to-day activities. This is pertinent to living an adventurous and fulfilling life!

This is true wisdom.

Have a circumspect week ahead!
