Perception of Time
If you had to compare time to an animal, what kind of animal would it be? What does this say about your perception of time?
Connecting with Yourself
Write “Time is…” at the top of the page. Then let your thoughts roam freely without censure, and write down whatever comes to mind. See if you can fill a page with your ideas about time. When done, reflect on what you’ve written and how it shows you your perception of time.
Coming to God
God of the Millennia, forgive my foolish fixation on time. Help me realize that my times are in your hand. Particularly forgive me for my concerns about (the time crunch that is worrying you now). Let me instead come to you in this moment. (Continue to pray about your time concerns, offering them to God.)
