making the best use of time.
in 2012, i want to be making the best use of time ….it is so easy to get distracted by everything it seems these days. whether it’s pinterest, an iphone, ipad, or just browsing the internet for no apparant reason…there are so many distractions in our generation. although i do want to be inspired and think that it’s necessary in photography and life in general, it shouldn’t become a time waster. there are so many things today that are good but sometimes very simply, waste time.
being a stay at home mom with a little one, i feel like it sometimes takes a lot of discipline to get things done the things that i need to get done. this year, i want to focus my attention on what truly matters while other things that don’t matter as much, can wait. this year, i want to spend more time reading books. i want to spend more time in the Word, even if that means waking up before the rest of the house is awake. instead of spending large amounts of time on media (internet, tv, etc.) i want to spend time playing music and writing.
one day the way that i use my time will be seen by leland who spends all day with me. the Lord already sees. i want to be an example and not necessarily “busy” but to be intentional with the way i use my time. that is my prayer for this year. Lord, may i use this time that i’ve been given to accomplish all that you would have for me to do, with purpose and in love.
“look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil” isaiah 5:15
