ENERGY vs. TIME: Which, to you, do you consider to be the more important resource? For me…give me ENERGY. Time is not an issue for me. Time is a Gif from Our Lord God, Jesus Christ. He has allotted each of us a certain amount. If we’re lucky…time is fixed for most of us… at around 80 years.
It’s how we “energize our time” that makes the difference. ENERGY, properly developed, properly channeled, properly executed, with the proper and appropriate motive, with ample passion, and with a dab of stress… will over-come all the obstacles affected by time.
Energy is what makes one’s time valuable. Yet, every day, it seems…we are going about destroying this “valuable resource.” We are… hell-bent, and obsessed… with obesity, drugs, alcohol, sex, smoking, and, even… anger…all of which, play havoc with that precious gift…TIME.
That, precious bit of Time…a gift from God…we treat it as if we had an un-limited supply.
The pillars of energy are physical, psychological, intellectual, and spiritual. We are taking God’s Temple…our body… therefore our ENERGY, and “wasting our TIME.” Are you out of ENERGY? Well, then, you ought to know why.
We are told in Ecclesiastes 9:10 – Whatever you find to do with your hands, do it with all your might, because there is neither work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the grave, the place where you will eventually go.
Also, in Psalm 39:4-5 says – “LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered–how fleeting my life is. You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”
If you want to spend “time” in eternity, with Our Lord, God, Jesus Christ…. Then use “your time” on earth with all the “energy” you can muster… in the name of the Lord.
We mustn’t fall asleep at the switch. ….Blessings…cjlb….7/23/16
