I would think I already know the nitty-gritty of “managing” time, but no. I eventually realized that any attempt to manage time is useless because we cannot manage something we do not own and control in the first place. But we can steward it and surrender it to God because it has been given to us – in a form that is short therefore precious.
I am guilty of this, too. My prayers would highlight a lot of asking rather than praising, thanking and confessing. “God, please do this”, “God, if it is Your will, can I please have this”, “God will you please change this”, etc.
God used Leigh to remind to be thankful and content not for what God can do or give but for who He is.
