We concluded the Dream Job series today.
Great series. Lots of challenging discussion. Lots of fun.
Here are some highlights from today’s message:
Problem: There is too much to do and not enough time to do it.
Solution: Choose to Cheat.
Our lives are full. There is more to do than can be done in a day. We all cheat something. Who or what is it for you?
A few random but powerful statements that Pete made:
- If you are going to trust God with your life, you are probably going to have to die to something. What are you going to die to?
- No one else is responsible for your life being out of control.
- I would rather be a hero at home than a hero at work.
- We buy into the illusion that more will be enough.
- Contentment comes when the mind of Christ takes over my mind.
The bottom line question: Who in your life feels like they are getting cheated? What are you going to do about it?
The Challenge: Over the next 30 days make a conscious decision every day about how you will honor God with your time.
I’m working on how this challenge specifically applies to me. I’m going to make a few goals for myself. How about you? What do you need to do over the next 30 days to honor God with your time?
this is something i consistently struggle with. i seem to have a lot on my plate – so much so that i dont tend to everything. its not that i cant, i just dont know whats more crucial than the other. so something/someone always seems to be getting robbed.
i NEED to organize and prioritize for sure!
I’m going to cheat this week!
I’ve decided that I’m taking Tuesday off so I can leave earlier for Ohio this week. My grandparents are aging and I feel like I need to cheat work to spend a little extra time with them.
Read about Annie on my blog — she has few friends because of her condition. I try to make more of an effort to talk with her before and after choir. Better yet — perhaps I can figure out a way to include Annie and some of the others at once, so they will begin to feel more comfortable including her into their circle of friends.
I’m the queen of time mis-management. ugh….
