It's About Time

This past Friday night and Saturday morning,
I went to a Women's Conference on Campus that was titled,
"It's About Time."

The whole conference was about how we have to change our mind sets on 'time' and what 'time' means.

Our Speaker,
Mrs. Rachel Lovingood,
(yes her real name is lovingood, and she was wonderful!! A little bit like Beth Moore!!)

said that in our life there are 2 Important Days that Matter:
1. Today

We can not change what happened in the past, so try not to dwell on the bad. Take what experiences the Lord has given you and put them to use.

2. Day We Meet Our Lord

The Day we will meet our Lord is our untimate goal in this life. We should stive every minnute to serve him.

Everyone of us has the time to do God's will for our lives. He is not going to give us anything that we can't handle.

Ephesians 5: 15-16 
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Mrs. Lovingood also taught us that we have 3 Basic Enemies that are always making things difficult for us.
1. Satan

We should always stay grounded in our spiritual disciplines.

2. Ourselves

Some of our greatest battles occur in our minds. Every sin begins with a thought, that turns into an action.

3. The Word

God has provided you with EVERYTHING that you need. We should not lust, there is a whole lot in this world that discourages us.

We must remember that People are more important than your schedule.

Also a neat little saying that they taught us is:

Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery,
Today is a gift,
that's why we call it the present.
