Abundant Time

Psalm 145:5 “I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles.” Life has generally gotten more and more hectic as I’ve gotten older. I guess that’s natural and probably true for most of us. As God enables us with more capabilities, a broader range of friends and acquaintances, and more responsibilities, we have more demands on our time. Then when some exogenous shock hits, we have this idea that we don’t have enough bandwidth to deal with it all. Well today the family is heading out on a cruise to nowhere, and because I’m unsure about the quality of my connection at sea, I’ve cleared the entire schedule for a few days. I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with the family, and some quality time with the big guy upstairs. There have been more things to take care of, and with dad’s condition progressing, I’ve found myself thinking that I just don’t have the bandwidth to deal with it all. I’ve struggled to keep up with messages, and time with God has suffered. But the reality is if I can clear my schedule for a few days at sea, I can definitely clear it to carve out time with God as well. “You don’t have time” is really a lie of the enemy. The truth is that I have all the time I need to do exactly what God wants me to be doing. I just might need to shift my idea of “what He wants me to be doing.” Lord, I put you first and only want what you want. I look forward to meditating on your majestic, glorious splendor and wonderful miracles over the next few days. You are not a God of scarcity, but of abundance. I have all the time I need. Thank you for loving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
