Why is it that when it comes to time we have none or we want more. Think about it… In the mornings when it’s time to get up we sleep the best within those five minutes or so between wake up alarms than we did all night. Then we start off our day with “Just five more minutes..” Or when we are vacation it’s like time doesn’t apply to us. Time stands still and we truly enjoy every moment or every second…. Or maybe your thinking of a time were you said “If only I had more time with you.” More time with someone you loved or you wish you could go back in time to change it.
There is no place in the Bible that tells us how much time we have on earth. There is no place that can ever tell you how much time we have here on earth. God does however tells us that the end of times will come in like a thief in the night. You never know when or how it will happen.
So why write about time if there isn’t anything we can possibly do about it? Well because we can do something about the “right now”. Today, this second, we can change our decisions. We can pray for someone who we have been thinking about. We can live in the moment right now instead of complaining about it. We can get right today. My nana always says, “Today is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalms 118:24
It didn’t say tomorrow, it says today. Now. This second. We get so tied up with our plans and dreams and wants. But God sees our needs. We ask him for an instant miracle but it may take a few years before you see that miracle… We are like a garden. He plants us in his soil. Waters is when needed, gives us light, rest, lets us grow and then he helps us bloom. Bloom into the people we need to be for Him not who WE think we should be.
There’s one song I use to sing as a kid that has stuck with me through everything. And I don’t remember the whole song just this one part. It goes like this:
“It took you just a week to make the moon and the stars, the sun and the earth, and Jupiter and mars. How loving and patience you must be. He’s still working on me.”
Today, tomorrow, forever. He’s still working on us. Still there even though he maybe silent. Still cares even though you think he doesn’t. And he always has time for you. 24/7, anytime, anyplace. With that being said; what do you need to do with your time?
Hope you enjoyed. Have a good day.
