Time goes by so fast. It seems like just yesterday that I was a little girl living at home with my Momma and Daddy. I think about how it seems like yesterday that I was a high school graduate.It seems like yesterday that I was getting engaged and married. It seems like just yesterday that I was holding my daughters in my arms…talking baby talk with them..and watching them learn to crawl and then walk. Seems like yesterday that my husband and I were on our trip in the New England States. Time sure does fly.
There are those days that you wish would fly.. the ones when your kids or students or whoever.. are trying your patience. The days when you can’t seem to do anything right. The days when your kids, etc.. are not listening and obeying. Oh yes…there are those days that we wish away.
Then there are the days that seem like a dream. The days when everything is going smooth. Everyone is getting along nicely, no fussing..no problems. The days when you are on vacation or simply doing what you enjoy. There are the days when everything seems perfect and we want those days to last and last. We don’t dare wish those days away.
What if today was your last day? What if it wasn’t a perfect day though..but it might still be your last? Would you wish it away..or would you persevere and endure..choosing to find something good in it..what would you do?
I ask myself the same questions.. There are plenty of moments in my day when things (fussing children..bills to pay..unexpected inconveniences, etc..) can try to trip me up. Those are the times when I have to take a step back and breathe and choose to persevere and to count to 10 or 100 if necessary.
Life is not a “bed of roses” all of the time. Our friends..our family..our co-workers..our kids..etc.. are not perfect…none of us are perfect. That’s why we needed a Savior to die for our sins. God is perfect and Holy.
Time flies…and before we know it..it is gone. We can’t get back the moments that have passed. Anyone who has lost a loved one..family member or friend, knows the feeling of wishing for just one more moment here on this earth. Make each moment count..you just never know when it could be the last moment you have.
Here is the good news, you are guaranteed an eternity together… as long as you believe in Jesus and have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior. That is the only way…
So, I leave you with two questions. Are you going to make your moments count? AND Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus?
Ok, maybe I have one or two more to ask. Do you know that you know that you know that you are going to Heaven? What are you doing to bring God glory? Are your moments counting for Jesus?
Mark 13:32-33 ~ No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
1 Samuel 12:24 ~ But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
Romans 10:10 ~ For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
UNTIL NEXT TIME!
