Your best hour

There is great power in every hour of the day. Every unused hour that passes, is an opportunity that has been missed.  So which hour will be your best hour?

Growing up I have been fortunate to watch the "Hour of Power" with Robert Schuller. When I was younger, my mother watched his ministry and because we only had one television at the time, I did  too.  I repeatedly heard the messages, but had no clue what it meant until now.

For so long I was disorganized and had no idea on how to get myself together. I was lost spiritually, mentally and emotionally. In the NIV it reads in 1 Corinthians 14:33 ..."and God is not a god of disorder but of peace - as in all the congregation of the Lord's people." I took this to heart because my home, job and life was in total disarray.

Some time ago, I had a conversation with my mother about past times. She read that Robert Schuller had passed away and  instantly, I remembered the "hour of power".  I took time to research the sermons  and came to the realization that every hour can be your best hour, depending on how you utilize the time.

I began mapping out my day and choosing the most pressing issues that needed to be handled first. In my home I started working on my bedroom. This was the place that I spent the most time reading, sleeping, and dressing. Next I worked on the bathroom, kitchen, and so in.  All had become organized, but there were other areas that needed attending to. Something was missing. The most important component above all that I had not worked on was myself. The journey from that time forth  has not been easy, but it has been well worth it.

Today, I take time to work on myself, home, work and family. It has been amazing to see how much I can accomplish in a hour's time. In the morning I listen to a spiritual uplifting message, straighten up the bathroom after my shower, make up the bed, wash a load of laundry, feed the dog, grab a cup of tea, and head to work - all before 8am.

At work, I do the same as home. I carve out a time to work on and complete all pressing items to increase productivity. In the afternoon when I return, I spend quality time with my family, and take at least 30 minutes to straighten up after dinner. When you build a regular routine, you'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish in just one hour. All you need to do is choose the hour.
