Not Enough Time

Have you every felt like the whole world is crashing in on you? There isn’t enough time to do everything. Have you made more commitments than can possibly fulfill? Our economy is built upon impulse buying. Advertisers know this and are good at it. Most people, if given the time to make a good decision, wouldn’t buy a lot of the things they do. This also applies to the groups and programs we join. Why do we do it? NOT ENOUGH TIME…

There are a number of reasons and I would think that most of them were good at the time. But, now that we take a moment and look back, we wonder why we did. There is an old saying that goes something like this, “We usually don’t have enough time to do something right, but we always have time to redo it.” I believe that this also applies to other areas of our lives.

Do we ever have time to just sit back, rest and meditate, or do we occupy every waking moment with music or some other activity? Does the Lord ever get any of our thoughts? How long do the results of any of our activities last? Will there be fruits from it in the future or is it just a waste of energy? What will the world remember about us after we are gone? Our families? Our friends? Our acquaintances?

If we are not careful, we will find ourselves getting lost in the rat race of humanity, without purpose and without a destiny, always grasping for the next straw that comes our way. But, how do we know what it is we are supposed to do? There is only One Who can show us, but if we can’t hear Him we won’t ever know.

Purpose within your heart to take a few moments, here and there, throughout each day. Spend these times meditating and asking the Lord questions, anything. Then listen and listen again and again all throughout the day. Gradually, things will begin to change. Your life will take a different direction. You will find you will have more time to do the things that are really important. Find out what are the important things in your life, what really matters. Then, start to do them and stop doing the other things. Soon your life will have a new meaning and you will be filled with more joy.

May you have a wonderful day, blessed by the Lord. Grace, peace, mercy and love to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
