Hi Guys, my name is Susan and this is my first time of sharing a blog. Grab a coffee, kick off your shoes, sit back, relax and let’s think about, time!
What is time? On earth we live by the 24hr clock, which is the governor of time; setting both beginnings and endings. In heaven however, time is timeless and eternal, it never runs out! Time is a common noun used frequently in our every-day lives: “What is the time?” “The train had arrived on time” “What time shall I meet you?”
Regularly we feel like there is just not enough time or hours in the day. “I ran out of time!” “I am making up for lost time.” “how many times do I have to tell you??” “If only I had enough time to do...” “I need to hand this in on time.” Do any of these phrases sound familiar to you?
It’s so easy to reason and make excuses to blame everything on time. Did you know that the word ‘time’ is mentioned 623 times in the bible? (You don’t have to count, just google!). How much do you value your time? Our lives on earth can diminish in a split second; it can be as quick as the click of our fingers. I urge you to spend your time wisely!
The cliché ‘time waits for no man’ couldn’t be truer and what better time to spend our time, than with Jesus, now. There is a great passage in the bible about time in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NLT)
A Time for Everything.
There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to rebuild.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. (I am still learning this!)
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
May you be blessed as you meditate on these verses and value each precious moment spent using your time.
I close now as my time is pressing on but I look forward to sharing more thoughts with you, next time!
