The Burden of Time
As you might be able to tell by the lateness of this article, my time management is definitely not at its peak right now. With God, school, work, and not to mention trying to fit in a social life, it definitely gets too overwhelming, too quickly.
In my defense though, I changed this article four times in this past week.
I believe, from what I've seen/heard from others, that time is the biggest obstacle that keeps them from growing with God. I've always been a bit confused when people use that as their stumbling block. But, now that I've gotten a bit older, the weight of life has definitely fallen hard on me. From starting back in public school, working many more hours a week than I used to, and spending my free time doing homework or hanging with friends, it’s honestly getting harder and harder to glorify God in it all. Not to say that I am not glorifying Him, but it is definitely getting harder, and much more painful.
1 Corinthians 10:31 is a verse that I've been holding near my heart lately. With the pains and burdens that life holds, this verse reminds me of the one most important aspect of life; to obey God, and to keep his commandments.
So, in a way, this was kind of my confessional. It helps to get things off of my chest, and who better to do it with then my brothers and sisters. I hope some of you benefit from this short lesson in one way or another.
I hope you all have a great week. God bless you all.
