Where does time go?

time, waste, optimal, stop it, live right, slip away, ticking, clockAre you busy? Are you overwhelmed with too much to do and not enough time to get it all done?

They say that the older you get, the faster time goes by. Well, I must be 300!! This year has flown by, I try to get everything on my list checked off but I’m always adding thing to the ‘to-do’ list!!

James 4:14 gives us a reality check>>

..yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.

How do you spend your time? Do you use it wisely or do you just throw it away?

My pastor challenged us to see how we manage our time with the chart below.

There are 168 hours in a week. Calculate the average number of hours per week that you are investing in the following areas:

  1. Work  _______hours
  2. Sleep  _______hours
  3. School/study  _______hours
  4. Family/Friends  _______hours
  5. Leisure/Sport  _______hours
  6. Eating/drinking  _______hours
  7. Household activities  _______hours
  8. Church/Spiritual Activities  _______hours
  9. Other  _______hours

Total  _______hours

Subtract from 168                          -168


How many hours are left?   _____________

Are you letting the time slip away?  How are you using your time?  What are you doing to impact eternity?

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.  Psalm 90:12
