Nothin' But Time

Okay, okay, yeah, I know. The tag line for my business is "when you just don't have the time" and here I'm saying "nothing but time". Doesn't make sense right? Well, it does, if you really think about it.

How many times do you say or have said, "I just don't have time for this"? Probably more than you can count. But the funny thing is, in reality, there is nothing but time. Time is in perpetual motion. It never stops (well, there was that one time in Joshua 10:12-13). So how can we say we don't have time for something? If we have something, it is time. It is fleeting, but we do have it.

What you DO with your time is the issue at hand. Do you spend it in worry? Do you fret over a problem for hours with no solution? Do you ignore the urgings and promptings in your soul to spend time in communion with your God because you have a deadline to meet? Do you overbook your children and stress out over keeping their schedule? How do you spend your time?

Think about time differently. Time is there. You do have time. Choose to spend it differently. Delegate your tasks if you can (send your website business to me!!), take a break to catch a breath and rethink your approach, say "no" when you are overworked, or overbooked. Take the time to devote to God and reap the goodness and rewards of living in His word daily.

Time is ticking.
