Time to do what?

Do you feel like time flies past of does every second seem to tick by so very slowly?

I guess the answer to both these questions depends on many factors, here’s some examples

  • whether you’re at school, or college, working or retired
  • whether you have lots to keep you busy all day, maybe even too many things
  • if you’re looking forward to something in the near future, the time always seems to go very slowly
  • if you’re facing something you’re not looking forward to, that time comes so very quickly

Time is strong isn’t it, as you can be sitting beside the same person for a whole day doing the same job, but they might think the day has flown by, but you feel it has dragged.

Whether your day and week have flown by or dragged, I hope you made time for God each day.

Time, clock, watch.

Time is the same no matter how busy you  are or how relaxed you are.

Tick tock the clock need stops.

The minutes and hours speed by.

The days, weeks and months are over before we’ve even got used to which day we’re on.

Time stops for nothing or for anything,

Then you find you’re watching the clock and the complete opposite happens!

Time seems to stand still – tick…tock,,,

There’s nothing any of us can do to speed up time,,,tick,,,,tock…has the clock stopped?

The next stage is clear, keep going…the clock marches on.

Time, clock, watch…make the most of your time, as you’ll never get any of it back.

24/7 365 days a year – That’s a lot of time isn’t it!

Here’s the scary part, that’s how much time God wants us to live like Him.

Now here’s the reassuring part, God is with us every second of those 24/7 365 days of every year!

So if you’re not living your life for Christ 24/7 365 days a year, it’s time to consider your life again. Make your life all it can be, by living your life for God each and every day.

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save ~ Will Rogers

We all rush around from task to task and place to place, but have you stopped for a minute to wonder why we rush around?

Those times when you get something finished quicker than you expected, or your journey home took less time than usual, what did you do in those extra “free” moments you had?

Here’s something to fill your “free” time with – Tell those you love, how much they mean to you, as we often rush about so much that we forget to tell those who we love just how much we love them.

Tick tock

No matter how much we want to stop time or how much we want it to go by much quicker than it is, time just keeps going on and on for ever.

I’ve found myself thinking about time a lot in the last week or so as we came to end of 2015 and stepped forward into 2016. Here’s what I said in a recent Facebook post:

In some ways I’m sad to see the back of 2015 as it feels like I’m leaving some things behind which I wish i didn’t have to. However the other half of me is so glad to see the back of 2015 as it’s been a truly awful year.

I guess these days we are all so busy running here and there that sometimes forget what is truly important to us and those we love, and therefore miss out on saying or doing things which when we look back later, we wish we had done. Sometimes we’re luck and get a second chance to say or do those things that we missed out on the first time, but sadly those times may have been our one and only chance to say or do something, and we have missed our chance.

So don’t let time go by without taking those opportunities that come your way, because you may never get the chance to experience them again.

 

So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal ~ 2 Corinthians 4:18

It’s hard to remember sometimes that all the things around us, are just here for a short period of time, so if we want something that will last forever we must look heavenward, as God’s love is eternal.

Carrying on my theme of the last few days about time, I wanted to share the following with you:

Same hours

That’s a great reminder isn’t it? It just proves that if we really want to make a difference in this world, and truly touch the hearts and lives of those we come into contact with, we do have more than enough time.

Others have made great use of the time they had on earth, so make sure you do too!

There is one thing in life which we really can’t change, slow down or stop, and that is time. Mind you that doesn’t stop us wanting more of it, or wanting it to pass quicker if were looking forward to something, or at other times, wishing we could turn back time so we could do things differently, take different actions, or simply just tell someone something we never quite got round to doing.

Why do we always think there’s plenty of time to say or do things that we really should do now?

Time continues to march on, and each second of your life is a second you will never ever get to live over again. So, make the most of every second you have, because who knows when it may be your last, or when it may be the last time you may get to see or tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.

God is not a cosmic bellboy for whom we can press a button to get things done ~ Harry Emerson Fosdick

I’ve come across people, including Christians, who think that the moment they need God they just have to call to Him and he will immediately answer, no matter what we are asking for, or what we need.

I’m afraid I’m going to quash that theory, at least partially…God is on call 24/7, and will hear every prayer we utter. However that does not mean he will automatically answer our prayer requests immediately…but He will answer them, in His time, not ours!

God will answer our prayers, but possibly not how we want or expect. He knows what’s best for us better than we know ourselves, so He answers our prayers in whatever way He deems is best for us, and whenever He deems it best for us.

 

Does your past haunt you?

Are you ashamed of things you’ve said or done in your past?

Sadly we can’t change our past, and we can’t undo things we’ve said or done, but that doesn’t mean we can’t move on from whatever lies in our past.

God doesn’t care about the mistakes we’ve made in our past, He cares about us too much to hold our past against us! He will forgive us of our past misdemeanours if we are ready to forgive ourselves, and hand them all completely to Him.

So no matter what lies in your past, God is ready and waiting for you to turn back to Him today.
