“They say time is money, but that’s not true. Time is life. And if I want the fullest life, I need to find fullest time… the busyness of your life leaving little room for the source of your life…God gives us time. And who has time for God?Which makes no sense.” (Ann Voskamp).
Do you know how to spell love? You spell it T-I-M-E. That’s right. You make time for who and what you love. Always.
If you think you will automatically have time for the people you love, you won’t. That’s why you have to make a deliberate and intentional choice to MAKE time for them. That’s what love is, after all. More than a feeling, love is a deliberate act of the will.
If you love God, you will make time for God. You will cut out something else from your schedule to create margins in your life to seek God in earnest. I like how someone else said that you must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life, especially your spiritual life. And if you belong to God in Jesus, isn’t all of your life — your work life, your home life, your love life — essentially spiritual?
Remember, you will always make time for what and who you love, whether it’s a hobby or a career or a cause or a person. Always. You can tell where your heart is by your checkbook and your calendar. May your heart be filled with such a transforming love for God that it changes both you, your checkbook, and your calendar.
