#441: Computer not working

If you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while, it’s because my laptop has been having issues lately, and I haven’t been able to use it consistently. Of course there are other computers that I could’ve used to post, but I have to share them and I don’t always have a lot of time.

This time has been really good for me, shortly before this all started I was beginning to realize that I was wasting too much time on my computer when I could’ve been using my time much more productively. Now that I haven’t been able to use my computer I have been spending time doing more meaningful things, (though I will admit probably not as much as I should) still, God has used this time to show me things about how I use my time that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

#441: Thank you Lord for this time when my computer hasn’t worked and what you’ve taught me about how I use my time as a result.

Day 346: 5 Minutes

I’ve been really busy lately and have had trouble finding time to do all the things I need/want to do. That got me thinking today about time, we often try to fill every minute of the day with something so we’re not bored. Then I started thinking about a specific amount of time: 5 minutes. It may seem like a lot of time or very little depending on how you look at it, but in the grand scheme of things it really isn’t that long. Think of all the things you can do in 5 minutes: Stop and rest, listen to or sing a song, read a chapter of the Bible, write a blog post, etc. There are lot’s of things you can do in the space of 5 minutes but we often ignore it or rush through it. I’d like to encourage you to take five minutes today and do something meaningful, it won’t take that long, and you can use the rest!

Day 346: Thank you Lord for 5 minutes, it’s such a short amount of time, but if used effectively it can be meaningful and powerful.

Day 174: Busy Weekends

This weekend was one of the busiest I’ve had in a quite a while. I had a great time and I’m glad I did everything, but now I’m pretty tired. I don’t enjoy weekends when I don’t go anywhere besides church as much, but I wouldn’t want every single weekend to be busy or quiet, it’s good to have a balance of both. It’s nice to be going and doing, but you need some down time too in between, which I didn’t get too much of this weekend. I like spending time with people doing fun things which is what I did this weekend.

Day 174: Thank you Lord for busy weekends, when I can have fun get out of the house and feel like I accomplished something.
