As breaks are coming to an end and the school year is becoming more difficult, time management is crucial. The load of work for school is piling up and spring sports will be happening very soon. Most of you have noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately or said much about the Reflection Club and it is because of school, obviously. With musical practices after school and volunteer work for my church almost every week, things are not looking pretty.
However, I still manage to also spend some time with God by reading the Bible for about 10-15 minutes. Notice when I say, “manage” because it is incredibly difficult to put even just a small amount of time into reading the Bible. Now, I know that many of you do not read the Bible everyday, but if you do, that is awesome and I hope you can continue to do so! You see, sometimes I forget to read and instead I pray to God about how I can manage my time wisely. Honestly, it doesn’t even have to be reading the Bible. It can be having a conversation with God, praying, or even glorifying him through the work we put forth. For me, I believe that it is a NECESSITY to read the Bible even when we have work, homework, and sports. Now, 15 minutes of reading the Bible doesn’t seem a whole lot because I can put in more time studying, playing on my Xbox, or sleeping (because we legit do not get any sleep at all). However, that “15 minutes” can mean a lot because of how much we can learn, relate, and apply from the Bible.
Most importantly, I believe that glorifying God and making him happy at the end of the day is honestly the best thing that can happen. Even when I have days where I can not read the Bible or pray because of school, I continue to work and study FOR God. You can do the same. Even when days can get rough remember that everything you do, you can do for God instead of doing everything solely for yourself. The time you put in for God can be “nothing” or at least “something”. I pray that we can at least do something for Christ each day and that we can glorify him through everything we do.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it ALL for the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
