“Where has the time gone?” A question that can drone on for too long and never receives an answer that satisfies. That’s because it’s a silly question that doesn’t need answering. Time moves at a steady pace. Time will not speed up and it doesn’t slow down. Time is a consistent thing we can depend on every day. If the alarm clock fails to ring at 6:00 in the morning, it doesn’t change the fact that it is 6:00 A.M. and time to get out of bed. What I do after that is up to me…while TIME continues to move at its steady and rhythmic pace.
I am jealous of time. I am envious of time. I want more time. TIME asked, “To do what?” “to do whatever i want,” said I.
“What do you want to do?” asked TIME. “i want to do whatever i want to do whenever i want to do it,” said I.
“Are you not satisfied with the amount of time you are given?” asked TIME. “no, i want more time to do what i want to do,” said I.
With a resounding voice, TIME reminded me that it was created for the glory of God. TIME is arbitrary. What matters most is what I do with the TIME God has given.
I give back my want for more time to God (it was never mine) and remember how TIME is used up for His glory. Used up well!
|TIME for them. Love watching them walk down the hall to KidzPraise and Children’s Worship!|
