I’m a quick fix kind of guy. I love microwaves, fast food, and almost anything that is preceded with the word "instant." But some things just take time. I’m laying here trying to recover from the flu as fast as I can. I’m taking more medicine than I think I ever have, getting more sleep than I have in the last three months and I’m laying down almost the entire time. There isn’t a quick fix to getting your body back into good health. The problem with that is life doesn’t take a time out while you’re incapacitated.
So when my eyes get tired of watching television and I can’t seem to sleep anymore I’m left alone with my thoughts. This morning while everyone I know and love here in Charlotte is at church, I’m laying in my bed pondering life’s mysteries. Here’s what I’ve come up with today.
Top ten things in my life that "Just Take Time."
1. Deepening my relationship with Christ.
2. Cultivating a successful marriage.
4. Building a unique and dynamic Family Ministry.
5. Getting in better health.
6. True friendship.
9. Being a self controlled man.
10.Being financially secure.
I’m sure this list is different for many people but for me this is it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Happy Sunday everyone.
