Another day.. gone so fast! I have learned by watching my family grow and thinking about the years that I have been married.. that
Time Marches On...
When I was a child,, time was irrelevant to me. Isn't it to all children? I never remember thinking that Christmas was "right around the corner," and I can't believe that it is another year already!? Did you think those things? Maybe, I was just totally out in left-field!
(Actually - I have a daughter that is always like that - in left field! She and I are a lot alike in that way I guess!)
Time - now? WOW! A day will pass me by before I realize that I wasn't able to "fit in" all that I would have liked. I will sit down at night and think, tomorrow will be another day, and I will purpose to fit in the things that I ran out of time for today.
Time Marches on!
My point in this post today?.. To remember a few things about each day.
They add up,, and you can never get one back. I will not live with regret.
I will not miss the opportunities that the Lord has for me if I am "in tune" with what he wants for my life,
if I remember His promises.
Like this week,,
I am focusing on His Compassion's are new every morning.
Since I am reminding myself of this, I am not spending my days looking for the ray of light at the end of the tunnel. Why should I look,, it is right there - every day - waiting for me to take hold!
( Oh, if I made it this easy every day!)
There are so many opportunities out there for me to GRAB!
I love to serve others.
I will not focus on time gone, but on what I can do for Him and others today!
I can recall quite a few times in the past that I have been prompted to call someone, or send them a card,, perhaps pray for them that day or week. Did I follow those promptings- I have to admit that there were many times that I did not.
Later, to my dismay, to find that it would have been a much needed encouragement to them.
I want to seize the plans He has for me.
I read this the other day -
We need to be careful to not put a period where God has a comma...
God has better plans that what I could ever imagine.
