Two hours

I think most people would like to change the world for the better. The problem is that we don’t know how (why I created this blog, see About) and we get busy. That is why, for this post, I want to talk a little bit about time management. I hear about time management lot, being a college student, RA, etc. Every time I hear about it, it is talking about doing it so can be successful. However, if we are living life to glorify God and show His love to other people, then time management and being efficient has a whole new meaning. Francis Chan wrote that “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” I think that when we internalize that, the way we manage our time will change. If we don’t have time to do something that changes the world, maybe we’re not spending our time on things that matter. I have been really busy with the start of school, work, etc., that I briefly thought about stopping volunteering at Wellspring Living, which I love and feel that God wans me there. Then, I got a wake up call by God nudging me that our time on Earth is only a small part of our lives, and it needs to be lived out fully for his glory. All of that to say, this week’s  suggestion of how you can change the world is to set aside two hours a week, every week, to do something that helps another person without compensation. I feel like no matter how busy a person is, we all have two hours to spare, and volunteering often leaves me more refreshed then before. It can be a time of rest and a time of action to change the world. So, get out there! You will be amazed by what two hours can do
