Five years from now where will you be and what will you be doing? If the answer is, “I want to be doing something different from what I am doing now, the question becomes, “How will you spend time today to move you in that direction.”
God has a purpose and plan for each of our lives. But we don’t just happen to stumble on to that plan without effort. Becoming all God wants us to be involves spending time each day to move us in the direction of our goals. If we see a big discrepancy between where we say we want to be in five years and how we are spending today, we need to carefully examine our lives to see if we really are using our time the way God wants us to.
So, before you go to bed tonight, take 10 minutes to write out what you think God wants you to be doing five years from now. Then, plan how you’re going to redeem the time.
