Time Management and Goal Settings


Show me, O Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days, let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but an instant in eternity. (Ps. 39:4-5) My life is a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. (James 4:14) The length of my days is seventy or eighty years, if I have the strength, and they will quickly pass. (Ps. 90:10) Teach me to number my days that I might gain a heart of wisdom. (Ps. 90:12) You created time; it belongs to you (Col 1:16) and you have portioned some to me. I will prove faithful to steward the time you have given me. (1 Cor. 4:2)

Without a vision for my life, I would lose focus and do nothing of value. (Pr. 29:18) Therefore, I will be diligent to plan so that my life will be profitable and not impoverished. (Pr. 21:5) I will write down a vision for my life so that I can see it and run with it. (Hab. 2:2) I will not become lazy, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. (Heb. 6:12) Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor. (Pr. 12:24) My diligence will result in all my desires being fully satisfied. (Pr. 13:4) I will not be a slacker and an accomplice to destruction. (Pr. 18:9)

Today, I will not be worried and bothered about so many things, but choose to focus on only the few things that are necessary. (Luke 10:41-42) I will seek first your kingdom and your righteousness and all other things I need will be given to me as well. (Matt 6:33) I will prioritize what you say is important. I will love you, Lord, with all my heart and with all my soul and with all my mind and love my neighbor as myself. (Matt 22:37-39) I will go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit and teach them to obey everything you have commanded. (Matt 28:19-20a) I will train myself in godliness because it has value in all things. (1 Tim 4:8) I will devote myself to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. (Acts 2:42) I will continue to meet together with others to encourage one another and spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Heb 10:24-25) I will be very careful how I live and will make the most of every opportunity, (Eph 5:15-16) serving your purposes in my generation, (Acts 13:36a) because I will give account of myself to you (Rom 14:12) when I appear before the judgment seat of Christ and receive what is due me for the things I’ve done, whether good or bad. (2 Cor 5:10)
