All in a day

Have you ever felt like there just isn't enough time in a day? You set out on task to complete the list of scheduled items and then the inevitable happens. That unexpected phone call or visit is before you and you're tempted to say not now, I've got way too much to accomplish. But then that voice in the back of your head says take the time and talk to this person. Before we realize it we are deep in discussion about a very real topic impacting their life.
If we're honest, life gets too busy too quick and we miss an opportunity to speak truth and love into a valuable beings life. It's one thing if the interruption to our "scheduled" day can wait but it's totally another if we neglect God's people. I wonder how different the world would look if we each took the time to share in one another's lives. So many of us much wisdom to offer and the Spirit speaks on our behalf when we surrender to God's will. I'm not convinced God's plan for us was to be too busy to demonstrate care to others. We all have our moments where a listening ear would make a world of difference. Let's try not to get so busy we miss the big picture that Jesus has painted for us to be involved in the lives of our neighbors. And we know our neighbor is not limited to our friends or immediate family. Be available in a broken world to piece back together an incomplete picture. This call for our lives is all in a day. 24 hours to make a lasting impact. Let's take the challenge and take the good news to every corner of the earth.
"And now I am about to go the way of all the earth, and you know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one word has failed of all the good things that the Lord your God promised concerning you. All have come to pass for you; not one of them has failed." Joshua 23:14
