In this excerpt from God's Blogs, see how Lanny Donoho portrays God's perspective on time and how we should use this precious gift from Him.

I have given everyone on earth a gift. I might add that it is a pretty incredible gift. I have been watching lately what most people do with it. It makes Me sad and sometimes ticked off. I listened in on a few million conversations today, and you were all talking about it.

Conversations went a lot like this:

“Gosh I just didn’t have time.”

“I wanted to, but time just slipped away.”

“Sure wish I had more time to spend with My family.”

“I didn’t have enough time to get the job done.”

Then there were phrases like,

“Sometime I need to…”

“Anytime you want.”

“What time is it?”

“How many times do I have to tell you.”

And then the one that really doesn’t make sense at all:

“I sure wish I had more free time.”

Here’s a note: There’s no such thing as “free time!” This will sound a bit weird, but “time” is a gift I made for you so you could give it back to Me. The reason it isn’t free is because for every second and minute and hour you use, you have to give something up You are trading time for something else. Most of you wouldn’t trade a thousand dollars for a dollar. Yet you trade time with your family for overtime at the office. You give up time to learn and grow and be with Me for time on your computers and your TV. You are sacrificing things that last forever for things that disappear quickly.

Forever is a long time. How you use your time now will determine, however, what forever is like.

So you have in your portfolio the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds you will be alive on your planet.

These are the gifts I have given you.

Every second counts. Every day matters. So every action, reaction, and transaction are of utmost importance…because ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE FINAL. YOU CAN’T GO BACK IN TIME.

Okay, I can, but you can’t go back. That’s why I AM God and you aren’t. It’s time now. Time for you to think. Time is like space. You can fill up the space you have and… you can run out of space. The difference is, you can see when you are about to run out of space. You could be out of time…really soon. Make sure you fill it up with the right stuff before you run out.
