Chip Ingram with Living on the Edge Ministries is one of the most dynamic pastors I've had the opportunity to listen to on 106.9 The Light (WMIT).
This morning, it was all I could do to stay on the road while jotting down his thought provoking ideas on wise time management, taken from his series, "Good to Great in God's Eyes".
Notes scribbled on today's grocery list:
- Many Christians are filled with good intentions but few purposes.
- Make a "To BE " list, then use it to fill in your calendar FIRST. For example, if being a good spouse is something I want to BE (and it is!) my calendar will have blocks of time reserved for Brian, there will be date nights and other events listed just for the two of us. If I want to BE the woman of God He has called me to be, my calendar will reflect specific ways which will help me accomplish this desire.
- The "To Do" list? It follows second. Not your normal calendar, eh?
Anyone who shares wise tidbits on how to use God's time more wisely will always be a favorite of mine. Thanks, Chip!
It's a constant struggle, isn't it? But it's good to know we're not alone.
