What do you want to be remembered for?
When you look back, what do you want to remember?
Normally, I wait until December to begin thinking about goals and hopes for 2015. But this year I am far too excited to wait. 2015 is a blank slate and if I am being honest… I have NO idea what it is going to hold. Will we stay in Thailand or Asia? Will we jump to Europe? Will we return to America? Literally…no.idea.
But you know what? That is okay. God holds us in His hand. While I will have goals I can physically check off my list- I want to focus on goals that help me become more of who GOD created me to be. This week one quote has been on my mind.
“How you spend your time, is how you will spend your life.”
I want to look back on my life and smile. I want memories filled with love, acts of service, people, family, bravery, and the joy of Jesus. But what does that look like?
Bob Goff points out “the battle for happiness is fought on the pages of our calendars.”
It is our choice how we fill our schedule. So in 2015, I want to cross off events that don’t matter. I don’t want to waste
an hour a minute of my time doing something that does not draw me closer to the woman God created me to be. I am going to be intentional about filling my time with moments that matters.
You and I get to decide how we will spend our time. If we aren’t careful, others will decide how we spend our time for us.
“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.”
