What to do with time

Where does all the time go? That question is usually uttered after the time in which we were planning to get things done has passed and we still haven’t really accomplished anything that we wanted to get accomplished.  I read a book resently entitled Coach Wooden One-On-One by John Wooden & Jay Carty, a 60 day individual reading on different topics that are and were important to the Great Coach John Wooden.  The first day’s reading was about time and the illistration by Christian comedian Robert G. Lee that jay Carty used really hit home to me, more about how I want to use every second of the day to glorify God.  Here is the illistration:

If every morning your bank credited your account with $86,400 but every evening canceled whatever part of the amount you failed to use, what would you do? Spend every cent–of course!    Well, you have such a bank account–it is called time. Every day it credits you with 86,400 seconds.  At midnight, whatever you failed to use is lost. A balance is not carried over to the next day and you’re not allowed over drafts. Each day the bank named Time opens a new account with you. Each night it burns the records of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.

I really want to have every second of the day be glorifing to God, moving towards His will each and everday.  “Dear Lord God, I want today to be a masterpiece for You. I want to bring glory to You every minute of the day. May it be so.”  (Carty, 1)
