I know what’s like to be busy and how much of the things around you, you don’t take note of. You just can’t help it. Can I do something about it you wonder? Yes, you can. When we talk about busyness and fruitfulness, we are literally addressing the way we use our time. Time is a resource that God has given us and he’s expecting us to be fruitful with it. Over the years i have learned not to use some certain words, words like “Am too busy”, “I can’t do this now”, “I don’t have the time for this”, “I am just passing the time”. My people, time is not a commodity to kill or to pass. It’s a stewards that’s to be harnessed.
Personally, i don’t like to waste time. I like to be productive with every minute. I don’t like to be kept waiting for a long time when i can be doing something resourceful and worthwhile with my time but yet again being impatient doesn’t help and it definitely hasn’t helped me much. I make dilligent effort to keep everything on schedule and that doesn’t mean everything and everyone have to work according to your schedule, you must be able to strike a balance and work with everyone.
Keeping everything on schedule sometimes gets me into trouble because circumstances sometimes causes me to fall behind, and then i have to rush. I don’t like to hurry, i don’t like the pressure of doing things hurriedly and so right now i am learning to put a little more margin in my life. I am also learning how to allow more time in between appointments, schedules, ect.
There are times when you do not have enough minutes or hours to complete a task or do something you want to do, but it’s too early to do the next thing you need to do. Whenever you have five, ten, or fifteen minutes, don’t just kill your time. Use it productively. Read something either a book or a Bible, pray, spend it with your children, check up on those friends or acquaintances that you never have time to visit, encourage someone, write, listen to good musics, appreciate those around you. You never know whose life you will be affecting with that little time. When you have a few minutes, make them count.
