Minute to win it…

An international game show franchise where contestants take part in a series of 60-second challenges that use objects that are commonly available around the house.

Would our time and decisions look different if we had a “minute to win it”?

The older I get the less time I have to make minutes count. I also have become more aware of my choices and how these choices directly impact whether the time is fruitful or wasted.

First, let me say…it’s okay to waste time and I will be the first one to admit that on occasion I like to do things that are completely “meaningless.”

My husband and I are in our 28th year of marriage. Throughout this time we have actively participated in three churches. Each church body has been special to us and has played a key role in our spiritual growth.

Every time God moved us, it was difficult to leave one season and begin another. A new church with new relationships and a new beginning. In every situation, we wasted valuable time resisting the new and holding onto the old.

God wants us to wait and pray. Thankfully, He gives us many minutes and opportunities to hear His voice.

He is patient. I am not.

I wish now , looking back, I would have been given less time to make decisions that have now made a great impact on my future.

My husband and I agree on this: we would have moved faster if we would have known what we were missing.

Summing it up I think it’s truly a balance. We need to live our lives everyday like we only have a “minute to win it”…making the most of the opportunities God places before us. And these opportunities are present EVERY DAY! However, He wants us to wait, pray and obey as well. That said, no matter how many minutes, when we give Him our time, every minute “wins it”.
