Last month, I read a book by Tommy Barnett called The Power of a Half Hour. The title sounded interesting so I put in my order and patiently waited for it to arrive. To be quite honest, December was such a busy and chaotic month for me that I forgot I even ordered the book until it arrived on my doorstep about a week or two later. The first thought that came through my head as I opened it up to the first page was, "Why did I even order this if I don't even have time to read it?'. But on the first page I saw that Joyce Meyer had given praise of the book so I continued.
"The Power of a Half Hour is full of unique, practical, and God-inspired truths to keep your time focused on all that God has called you to do. If you apply these principles, I believe it will bring renewed purpose and inspiration to your life". Instantly, after reading what Joyce thought of the book, I knew this would be something I needed to make time to read, and it was and so I did. Knowing that 2015 was right around the corner reminded me of the fresh start I could have in the New Year so that was another motivator to read the book as soon as I could.
This book is both inspirational and practical. So far it has helped me to realize how I can better my faith, become more productive, and live more intentionally with the time that I have. I learned that I wasn't using all of my time meaningfully and because of that, wasn't presently aware of all of that things God was trying to show me. When I fill my time with nonsense thoughts, and waste away hours worrying (which results in only doing half has good of a job a I can be doing) I'm not truly utilizing my time the way God wants me to.
I've got about two chapters left to go before I finish this book, but think it's an awesome read!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. However, all opinions are my own.
