Time Management Is Reality Management!

 

In Latin you would say “Ordo ab chao” = “order to chaos”; and most of us struggle with trying to make this a reality.

Father Mike Schmitz makes a very good point about this and I would like to share it with all of you before we continue.

 

I don’t know about you but when the discussion of time management came up before I was sick, I would procrastinate. Now because time management is key to being able to live a full life with my illness, I don’t have that luxury. Unfortunately, it usually leaves me feeling like this:

 

So as far as practical ways to help me manage time I have compiled a list:

  • Binder Systems   help you organize your thoughts and write things down.
  • Cozi App (You and your family can add to shopping lists, calanders, to do lists all for free)
  • Bible Study Apps such as: Laudate, Holy Bible app, and millions others

This is just some of the ways you can help yourself with time management. Remember, its okay if you need extra help from a life coach or maybe a physical therapist. The effort is more important than the circumstance. It is important to make time for God in one way or another and ask him to help you to manage your time; when you surrender your reality to God, you make a great step in your walk with Christ.

Here is some scripture to help you :

Ecclesiastes 3:1 

Sirach 35:26

Ephesians 5:15

John 7:6

Sirach 29:3

1 Thessalonians 5:17 

Normally I would include links however I feel that since I am encouraging Bible Study, I will let you seek so that you shall find what you need.

Creating Your Own Industrial Revolution!

The stress of life can cause anyone to fall behind and, for those of us with chronic illness, we fight this battle daily. I mean that if you work full time, have chronic pain (or maybe your child is chronically ill and, if so, I pray for you and your family), if you have small children (or large ones), pets or a hobby if you’re lucky; you end up falling behind.

Proverbs 31:18 States:

 

We all do different things to benefit our families and sometimes the pay out is not a monetary one (even if it can be also that as well). If you are a stay-at-home wife or mom, you are worth just as much as you would be if you were working. If you collect disability, that’s the insurance for if you did work. If you work full time or part time you are truly blessed; as are all you wonderful business owners and women with side hustles. No matter what kind of woman you are, we all get into a funk that tells us we are not. So I gathered some Scripture to help remind you just how awesome you are and how well you are doing, despite what anyone else says.

I want you to always remember: No matter how dirty your house is, or how angry your husband is, or how bad your kids are acting; YOU’RE DOING GREAT! You see, it is in these times we must ask God to help change our perspective so we can remember how blessed we are! I have put together some scripture to help all of us during these times of grief and self loathing.
