Hi everyone, how has your day been? Mine has been quite a rainy day. As a matter of fact i got drenched by the rain. I didnt expect it to rain so heavily as it did but at the same time i’m grateful for it and am sure those that have farms, gardens, would be thankful for it as well.
Ok, so in the morning before i rushed off to school, i was speaking on how we should make every moment count. Well, I don’t mean to suggest that we should be doing something with every minute of every day. Taking time to reflect and just drink in the quiet and silence is also very valuable during those moments between scheduled events. Silence restores the soul and helps prepare us for the next thing we need to do. I value my quiet moment and so i try to create time to have my “alone moment” no matter how tight my schedule is.

We need to learn to discern our needs physically, mentally, emotionally, and of course spiritually and use our time accordingly. Sometimes reading is best and at other times sitting quietly and doing absolutely nothing is best, we just need to know which one is suitable at the moment. Just remember that once time goes by, we can not ever get it back, so let’s use it wisely.
The worst thing that can happen to anyone is to grow old and look upon their lives and realise they never took time to do what they thought they were supposed to do or what they wanted to do or better yet feel they have wasted their lives. I don’t want you either to look back tomorrow and be filled with regrets. What is it you want to do? What is that vision you have been waiting for all these years to feature in? What is that passion that leaves you breathless every time you think about it? It’s time to get it done. Look for that cloud of confirmation and walk through it. Don’t let the time slip away from you. You may never get it back again. No matter your age, it is never too late to start using your time wisely and bearing good fruit.

As believers, we do not mourn over the past, we simply let it go and move on. Joel 2:25 (KJV)  “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” We serve a God who specialises in total recovery and restoration and a perfect example is seen when He sent his only begotten son to come restore us back to our rightful place. All we need to do is let him in and allow him manage us and our time instead of us managing Him. Your latter years can be even more fruitful than your former years if you determine today not to waste another minute, but to take dominion over every unproductive thing in your life and be fruitful every day. #You can do this….

13 Thoughts on “Make Every Minute Count! #Cont…”

  • What I can say… nice article, lovely a thing is sure we must be a positive thought in the baddie times and We must be remembering all days the sun is hanging in the skies and we must be fighting in the cloudy days as a shiny and motivated day, lots of reason to enjoying every minute and unfortunately we’re a dichotomy citizen and two sides of a same street, sunny or shadow could be the pic and we must be part of a lovely pic.

      • There’s a lot going on at work. I’ve come the realization that I can’t handle the job I am doing as a manager and I have to decide what to do next. I appreciate so much that you asked and thank you for offering to let me talk about it. Thank you so much for that. If you would just pray for me and continue to be my friend and just love me and support me and encourage me. Thanks again. I hope you had a good day.

        • Awwww i genuinely care that’s why i asked. There are people you meet in a day and they complete the puzzle of your life and you my dear is one of them. I’m not perfect but i will be here for as long as you want me to. You don’t have to struggle on your own. That’s what friends are for. I truly respect those people who stay strong during hard times. Even when they have every reason to break down. Don’t stop believing in yourself. Sometimes when things fall apart, it means God is simply working so things can fall in place. You are always loved. Yes, I am having not just a good day but a character building day. Thank you for sharing with me.

          • Well thank you. I appreciate you. You are so awesome. I consider you a friend too. I have a lot of friends who are Christians, but you are a rare breed. You don’t judge me and you accepted me with my flaws and all. That makes my heart happy. I’m not perfect either. I don’t want to be. Thank you for your words they are not only kind, but so thoughtful. You are so sweet. I will always be here for you as well. None of us should have to struggle. You’re welcome and thank you for allowing me to share with you.
