Redeeming the Time

10 Jul

TIME is your LIFE. When you waste your time, you waste your life. – Rick Grubbs

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)

Lord, what time wasters can I start eliminating today to redeem my time?

On Sunday July 9, 2006 I awoke at 3:45 AM feeling well rested after 6 hours of sleep. Because the time on my bedroom clock was off by about 25 minutes, I decided to reset the time. After correcting the time, I reset the FM station to American Family Radio [].

The very first thing I heard on AFR was a powerful 60 minute message from Life Changing Seminars about reeding the time. Immediately, the Holy Spirit instructed me to check out the website for Life Changing Seminars to learn more. Wow! What a blessing!

I learned that the mission of Life Changing Seminars is “Helping God’s people better invest their most valuable resourse – TIME.” I discovered that this ministry was founded by Rick Grubbs. In his powerful testimony, Rick shares how he was miserable and his life was a mess before he met Jesus.

Change seldom takes place without first asking questions. Jesus shaped His disciples’ thinking by asking them questions. When Jesus was asked questions, He often responded with questions. Questions can be very useful in discerning God’s will. The link below with “101 Questions” will help you discern God’s best for your life and to become more effective for Him.

The story about Rick Grubbs continues. On January 21, 2010, I had the privilege of hosting a webinar with him. It was by far the best presentation TIME I have ever heard.
