For years, I thought time management was all about doing more.
I felt if I could spend more time striking more items from my to-do list, I would become more productive and maybe, for once, feel relieved from the stress of my busyness and hurried life.
My list only grew.
For every chore there was always another one waiting. And my attempts to multi-task and juggle family activities, household chores, and other obligations became a tangled mess where nothing ever felt accomplished or complete.
Teach Us to Number Our Days–
I’ve learned time management isn’t doing more. Rather, it’s about doing what matters and spending our time on the who and what of our greater purpose.
“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
Numbering our days opens our eyes to our time investments.
Are we fully engaged in living on purpose?
Are we spending our time on eternal investments that count?
The Time You Have (in Jellybeans)?
To Number Our Days, we remember:
1. Time is a gift.
2. Time is short.
3. Time can easily be wasted.
So what about your jelly bean? How will you spend the time you have today? Share your comments.

Every day I pray for God to reveal His to-do list to me. I learned I’ll never finish everything on my list but I can always do what He requires of me in a day.
that’s a great practice 🙂
What a difference if we’d learn to toss aside our to-do list and grab hold of His.
Love this, Mitzi! Especially, “I’ve learned time management isn’t doing more. Rather, it’s about doing what matters and spending our time on the who and what of our greater purpose.”
