Today, we shall continue with our discourse on the subject of commitment and conviction. In the last episode, emphasis was laid on the issue of investing in time wisely.

We concluded that investing in time wisely brings us into a place of joy.
Today, we will go further to establish that to succeed in life God has endowed man with Time, Talents and Treasures (3Ts) in life for him to succeed on earth. A better of appreciation of these endowments will put you and I in a better place to optimize our life here on earth.
Let’s start with the first endowment, Time. In a simple term time can be defined as continuous and it is calculated as the interval between separate two points of a quantity also known as duration.
For the purpose of argument, time for man on earth is the interval between the period of his birth and death. The period of one’s existence on earth is short no matter how long a man lives.
There is therefore no need to procrastinate what need to be done today. Procrastination they say is the thief of time. Delay may be dangerous.
Our Lord Jesus addressed the issue urgency of purpose in life when He said “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work” (John 9:4).
Time of life should be used in the pursuit of purpose and the actualization of it. As long as a man is not committed to the actualization of his purpose, he wastes time. And he eventually comes to regret.
Don’t let a day go by without investing time in actualization of your dreams and aspirations in life, either by praying, reading or developing your skills which is the talent that God has bestowed on every man.
The singular difference between the most successful and the unsuccessful person in life is their commitment to the use of time for the actualization of their purposes in life. They spent quality time in developing themselves towards the fulfillment of God’s given vision.
Life, no doubt is full of distractions and time wasters, stay focus on your dreams, hold on to your dreams and be committed to its actualization.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. (Hab.2:30)
Lord, with each passing days, help me to be committed to the actualization of my purpose in life so that I won’t come to the end of my life in regret.
