HDIGITM Kindle PicThe Kindle Version of  the 2nd Edition of “How Did I Get Into This Mess?” You Compromised, Saith the Lord by Brenda Johnson Padgitt is now available at Amazon. com for $2.99.  Here is an Excerpt from the Introduction of the book:   Have you ever fell flat on your face spiritually, looked up and knew in your heart that you have disappointed God? If we are truthful with ourselves all of us would admit that we have. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

There will be times when you fall flat on your face during your walk with God. We often fall short because we make choices that do not line up with God’s will for our lives. This is God’s way of how we should do things. The Bible is His book of principles that we need to abide by to have a happy, healthy, prosperous, and fulfilling life.
Every decision that we make in life is not specifically listed in the Bible. We should still take every matter to God in prayer. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Time Management: Always a Hot Topic

Excerpt from page 20

Articles for Personal Growth and Development

by Brenda Diann Johnson  

I always have a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction when I get things done.  When I plan out my time daily and monthly it helps me stay on track with my goals.  My focus is then on purpose.  Each day I only focus on what is planned on my daily schedule while leaving room for emergencies.  This is important because sometimes unfortunate things happen even when things are well planned out.

     Sometimes unfortunate things can cause some goals to go uncompleted for a period of time.  In these instances don’t blame yourself, stay on track and pray for wisdom on how you should proceed.

Your Dreams Depend on Your Actions

Excerpt from page 14

Articles for Personal Growth and Development

“It’s Up To You To Get Your Dreams and Goals Moving”

Many people wonder why they never accomplish their dreams or goals.  Some continue to use the old popular saying “I am waiting for my ship to come in.” What ship are you talking about?  Your goals and dreams will never happen if you don’t sow labor into time.  This is the same concept when you sow or plant seeds into the ground.  You won’t receive a harvest of fruits and vegetables if you don’t sow seeds into the ground.  The same principle applies if you don’t sow labor or effort into time.  You won’t see the accomplishments or results of your dreams and goals. 

     Your accomplishments or results of your dreams and goals start with a PLAN.  The Random House College Dictionary states a plan is a method of action or procedure.  In a plan you write down what you will do to make your dreams and goals a reality.  Your plan is your road map to get to your desired destination.

Are You Using Your Time Wisely?

Excerpt from Article II page 19

Time Management Is Always A Hot Topic

Up For Discussion 

by Brenda Johnson Padgitt 

      The old adage “Time Waits for No Man” is true and should be taken seriously.  Time goes on no matter what.  You cannot roll back time.  Once time has moved on, it has moved on.  This may sound depressing for some but there is hope on redeeming time.  According to Ephesians 5: 15, 16 we are to be careful how we walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the most of our time because the days are evil.  (American Standard Version)

     In the Random House College Dictionary, redeem means to buy back, recover or to make up for.  When you have lost time on a task, you must find a way to redeem the time to complete the task.

     Some people recover time by doubling up on tasks, delegating tasks and using technology.  Other people resort to methods used by college students by pulling all nighters without any sleep.  In Garfield Gates article “Effective Study Habits for College Students” in Hub Pages, he gives 7 tips on how college students can study effectively and plan ahead.  He also covers some time management tips for students.

     In Randy Morrison’s CD series “Time: The Currency of a Prosperous Life,” he says that God created us to have dreams and goals and it will take time to make them become a reality.  He also says that the major difference between the prosperous and the poor is their value of time.
