God is counting on you today!

Hello! I hope you are having a great day! I have just one quick thought to share with you today. I know many of you wonder why in the world God created you. Some of you feel like you have missed your timing, missed your chance, or simply that you have never really fulfilled the purpose of  why you were made. Today I leave you with a few facts and thoughts that I pray will stir you and affirm you to make a difference for God starting today!
 
Jesus was our best example on how to fulfill God's purpose through us. Jesus made God His first priority. The most powerful way He stay connected to God was through prayer and spending a lot of time with God. So many times Jesus just had to pull away and go alone to spend time with God! I found this survey below and I wanted to share it with you today.
 
Did you know that a 1992 survey found that aside from sleeping and work, television was the number one thing most people spent their time on? Here is the estimate of how a typical life span of 70 years is spent:

Sleep..................23 years..........32.9%
Work.................16 years...........22.8%
TV.......................8 years...........11.4%
Eating...................6 years...........8.6%
Travel...................6 years...........8.6%
Leisure..............4.5 years...........6.5%
Illness...................4 years...........5.7%
Dressing...............2 years...........2.8%
Things of God....0.5 years...........0.7%

Total................70 years............100%
 
Truly this shocked me! You can't get away from sleep and work. But the rest of most of your time is definitely in your control. Jesus showed us that God should be our first priority! You can even take God to work everyday-- matter of fact that is where your harvest is that God laid out just for you-- to impact those that you work with for the Kingdom of God! If you feel like you are not living on purpose, if you are in a place of darkness, or if you just feel lost-- take this encouragement today. God has a purpose for each one of us and He is counting on you!
 
My challenge this week is: look at where you are spending your time and if you want to shift where you are spending your time do it today. Ask God to help you reach those that you see everyday. Ask God to direct every minute of your day. Give God the first minutes of every day and He will never fail you. You will immediately feel fulfilled and you will be certain He is with you no matter what your day brings! Make God your top priority today and follow the example of Jesus in today's scriptures-- Help God to set the captives free of this world through YOU starting TODAY!
 
Have a great week! I love each of you! Have a Lively week!
