We had a great Bible study tonight. Mrs. Davis shared about striving for Godliness. One thing she talked about was time. We must commit time daily to the Lord to grow closer to him. She shared that years ago she started looking at her day in minutes.
There are 1440 minutes in a day.
If we sleep 8 hours a day we have 960 minutes left. 
She talked about how most of us make excuses about not having our time with the Lord due to lack of time and being too busy.  We often think - I will start tomorrow.


Proverbs 27:1

         1Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

She pointed out that 10 minutes would only be about 1% of our day. 
She also mentioned that day we stand before the Lord, we will each be accountable for our minutes. 
How will we stand that day? 


Psalm 19:14

      14Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

I'm going to start today - making the effort to spend more time with Him each day.
She suggested "scheduling" the time - figure out when your mind is most active - morning, noon or night - and make it a point to keep your appointment each day.


1 Timothy 4:7-8

       7But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
       8For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
