What do I want more of in my life?

I can think of lots of things I would like to have more of, more time to spend with my children, more time to share with my husband, more time to talk with friends that are no longer a walk away from my home. I want more time to enjoy each grandchild on a one on one bases. I want more of God. I want to know Him with such intimacy that I can't wait to tell Him everything.

When I look at that list of the things I want more of I have to go to the next thing and that is what can I do less of to get to the MORE? Now that is the harder question.

Perhaps less time watching television. Maybe less time with my nose stuck in a book. (I don't think I can get up earlier or go to bed later, those aren't options.) I think that as I look at what I desire more of, I need to make better use of my time. I seem to waste quite a bit of it doing things that in the long run just don't matter much. I need to decide what I can do that will make a difference and bring glory to God.

As I reread the things that I want more of, the word TIME seems to be the ultimate goal. I can't get more time but I can start to use the time that I have better. Only with God's help can I leave some time stealing things and do time honoring things. Hmm it really does help to see things in print.


  1. Hi, I can relate to your desire and struggle to use more wisely the time one does have, and also how writing it out puts it into perspective. Thank you! I linked up behind you at Holley's :)

    1. Dolly so good to know that I am not alone in this struggle. I know we will both be much more aware of the time we have. I pray we both use it wisely.
