"The Lillibeth at 16 was kind to the Lillibeth at 26."
Here is an excellent article on how to spend your time wisely as a young woman. There seems to be a common misconception that our time is ours to use as we like. Contrary to that thought process however, is the idea that God owns our time and that we are to delight in doing what He has for us to do.
"You mean my spare time is not my own? I can't spend it chatting for hours on the phone with friends, at the mall hanging out, or online in chat rooms?"
It seems that God has a perfect design for each life and when the time comes that He lays responsibility on your shoulders, you'll prove as to whether you spent your time of preparation wisely. Did you fritter it away, or is there evidence that your took seriously the call that the Lord put on your life. Are you adept in a variety of skills? Whatever the case and however you find yourself at this point in time, build from here on. Whether or not you'll be able to take advantage of an opportunity often depends on how you spent your time of preparation. What blessings would God give to you if when you had little you considered it nothing?
