I have the choice with what to do with my time. Study for the boards or watch a movie? Church or study? What to choose, what is wise? Just because we should be good with church doesn’t mean that we should forsake studying as well. Tonight I chose to stay home instead of go to youth service because the church was 1.5 hours away and I have over 300 pages of material to get through before my boards on Wednesday. Was it wise? What did I miss? I feel slightly guilty for not going but I also had a hard time justifying 3 hours of driving plus church time.
What is right to do? These choices that we make with our time… it really isn’t our time, it’s God’s. I know that I must have wasted a good amount of time today… could that have been the same amount as driving there and the service? perhaps. I need God to just help me make the right choices but at times I feel like I get in the way of God.
Help me use the time You’ve given me wisely. Help me be who You want me to be. Help me Jesus. Help.
I know the both the feeling and the dilemma . . .
But there are two things to remember, (1) it is not important for you to be in the Word everyday if the Word is in you everyday, (2) you are the church.
Live for the King!
