It’s your time

It’s your time

A popular song right now is MaryMary’s “It’s your time”. I have to admit I was not a fan a first but I hear the song differently now. This morning as I prayed with my covenant sisters. We all had it on our hearts to pray for others. Not our families, friends, or circle of influence….but instead to think of others greater than ourselves. One of the lessons in the devotional teaches about our children passing through the fire. You may wonder why? Read 2 kings17:16-17 Our desire for a better life and more importantly our desire to give our kids a better life has become our God. If your single then it still applies to you but your God is different. Yeah, it could be having nice things but what I see and hear is a desire to enjoy all the things of life like: happy hour, “experiencing different things”, 50 shades of gray, sex before marriage, food, drinks and fun. Whatever you desire in your heart is what you are putting your focus into…and it has become your God. Church folks are no different, we desire to be the best at what we do. So it is our commitments to church and to our exclusive friends. We don’t reach out to the outside world because we are content with our “accountability partners”. We focus on ” if we are living up to the standard that God has called us to”…we can volunteer but “I also have to accomplish my goals and what God has destined for me.” We all have lost sight of the true meaning of what’s important at some point. BUT now is our time. Our time to start fresh, renew our hearts to what is right. Philippians 2:4 says”let each of you look out not ONLY for his own interests, but also for the interest if others”. Today, seek out opportunities to look out for someone else’s interest. It does not matter if it is helping some park their car, giving directions to someone who is lost, or buying school supplies for someone, YOU know is struggling. It’s your time. Hebrews 12:1 “Therefore since we are surrounded by so great of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, AND the sin that so easily traps us, AND let us run WITH endurance the race that is set before us. What is the race you are called to run?… IT’S YOUR TIME
