Into your hand I commit my mind
Help me to think only on you
Help me to set my eyes on you
Help me to value my time
Into your hands I commit my strength
Help me to walk only with you
Help me to do the best I can do
Help me to redeem my time
Into your hands I commit my heart
Help me to turn only to you
Help me to walk away from my sin
Help me to savor my time
Into your hands I commit my life
Help me to know I am yours
You purchased me by the blood on the cross
Help me give you all my time
Who do I think I am? Am I someone extra special who is allowed the liberty to do whatever I want with my time? That’s the way the world looks at time. They look at it as their own possession, to be used and wasted on their own pursuits. Some serve God with a bit of their time, using the rest to make their own dreams and passions a reality. Some do not know God and they take time to do whatever their heart desires. Most people use their time on what they want, not considering what God wants them to do.
I don’t want to be in that crowd. I want to do what God wants me to do. To use every minutes for His glory. Maybe it’s business I need to do. Am I seeking His plan for my day or am I aimlessly walking through my plan for the day. In my devotions and writing, am I seeking His counsel or just trusting my own ability? Am I exercises for the right reasons? Is God in the center and not of to the side somewhere?
I am done wasting time. Time is on of the most precious gifts God has given us, and we should give it all back top Him. Doing our best all the time because He is right there with us. He knows when I waste even a minute. He knows what I should be doing next and whispers in my ear all the time to guide me through this life. I need to listen better!. I need to give my life into His hand so He can hold onto my right hand!
Nevertheless, I am continually with thee, thou that holdest me by my right hand
