Have you ever thought, I will do better at this…next time! Whatever “it” is, you will do better! I find myself thinking that ALL the time! Next birthday, I’ll do the party right! Next Christmas, I will be the Pinterest queen! Next summer, we will take a weekday trip every week! Next year, I will accomplish all 10 things on my Top Ten list of improvements! It’s always next time…I’ll do better.
I find myself doing that when it comes to my daily devotional time. Next time, I’ll spend MORE time studying that scripture text out. Next time, I’ll pray a little longer for that situation. Next time, I’ll fast. Next time, next time, next time…
Those words almost haunt me. You see, time is a four-letter that does actually haunt me. Why? It’s so very significant because it’s actually very rare. Time is a precious commodity that so many of us take for granted.
You see? You may not have a next time. Do the most, be the best…now. Don’t wait. Don’t hesitate. Don’t put it off. Do it better THIS time!
The choice is yours. Choose wisely!
