Time, it is the thing that we all want more of. Happy New year everyone! Time is what we want more of yet it is fleeting away so quickly. The days seem to be going by faster and faster each day. Now I ask the question: do you think that God wants more time? Now God exists out of the regular time constraints so perhaps the question should be does God want our time? 

I believe that it is important to give God our time. This is even more important than giving money. This year consider giving God an offering of time. Here are some ways you can give God an offering of time. There are 24 hours in a day and I believe you should offer God your time as soon as you have been given the opportunity to open your eyes.

Prayer

I believe that it is important to start your day off with prayer. Start off by thanking God for giving you a new day. Next ask him to forgive you for your sins. Next, ask God to protect your loved ones and friends and pray for anyone who needs prayer. When you end your prayer you can make any personal requests. 

It is also important to end your day in prayer. This is the time to thank God for protecting you during the day and to leave the heavy load in his hand.

Bible reading is important

Another way to give God your time is by spending time reading his word. As with prayer you should do this in the morning as well. In my experience if Bible reading is left for later on in the day it will most likely not get done. 

A fun way to read your Bible is to do a devotional plan, you can find a lot of great devotional plans on the YouVersion Bible app. I also suggest that you read the Bible from beginning to end each year, you will learn so much.

Sing songs, worship God

Now worship is more than singing a song, it is an entire lifestyle but it also does include praising God through songs. I really enjoy traditional hymns but I also like to listen to artists such as Phil Wickham and I love the band Sounds like Reign. 

I am not a good singer myself but God is not looking for good singers, just for your time.

Some extra thoughts

I hope that this has encouraged you to consider giving an offering of time to God. What Bible reading plans do you like? Leave suggestions in the comments below. I share short devotionals each week so please return for more encouragement.
