I have been thinking a lot about this lately. I have some hopes and dreams that I don’t dare to share. I hope for them in secret but I am a coward and ’til this day I have failed to achieve them… Can I leave my safe environment and just trust God and throw myself into His mercy? Do I really dare to?! Isn’t this what it is all about? To trust?! To dare?! To really do?! Everything speaks against it, my economical situation, my age, my brain, my rationality. But my heart longs for it…To blindly go where I believe God wants me…But do I really dare to?…
So, I’m watching a series called Ask it. It centers around one question; “What is the wise thing for me to do?“. In light of my past experiences, my present situation and my future hopes and dreams, what is the wise thing for me to do?
In part 3, they talk about time. How could I manage my time best?
For the past month I have seen articles, pictures, meme’s and more pointing me towards this. How should I best spend my time? What is important? Looking back when I’m old, what will I regret not to have done? What will I be proud of I did do? What will have the most worth? All these articles, pics and meme’s have said to cherish friendship, family and Jesus.
People who lie on their death bed all regret not spending time with their children, not spending time with their spouse, working too much, being away from home too much, putting way too much worth in material things and putting too much energy in earning money. I guess this is true:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy,and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”
