What are you doing for the next ten minutes?
I mean, the ten minutes after you read this short blog post.
The next ten minutes.
I’ve heard that phrase several times in the past few days.
Enough to know I’m supposed to be paying attention.
“Our spiritual formation simply happens within the next ten minutes. What would it look like to trust Jesus, or be patient, or be content, or choose connection with God for the next ten minutes?” Jan Johnson
“At what point in your day is there some sacred space? You’ve got to push back ten minutes. I’m not talking about 40 days of fasting and prayer. Just some space to allow your soul to experience God.” John Eldredge
“Ten minutes praying is better than a year’s murmuring.” Charles Spurgeon, on Twitter
“Will you share your life with me for the next ten minutes?” from The Last Five Years
“When I’m training, I tell myself to just go for the next ten minutes and then I’m free to stop if I want to. I never want to.” Kikkan Randall, gold medalist
See what I mean?
So, what are you doing for the next ten minutes?
“My times are in your hands.”
