Greetings! I’m grateful for this day, as it gives me a new opportunity to get it/make it right. We may often put things off until a later date/time; or maybe, we become impatient and try to hurry things along. I have come to realize that all things work together for the good of those who love God. This means that I have not the power of time ... Eccl. 3:1 says “there is a time and season for everything.” Everything under the sun is in God’s timing.
Time is three dimensional: past, present and future, and it is a season of opportunity and/or occasion we can possess within the timeframe we are given. But, if we operate from the pedestal that time is not measured by beginning and end, then we are mistaken. Time can facilitate today, but we cannot create time in yesterday or tomorrow. We each have a choice as to what we will do with the 24-hour time period we have been given on this WINS-day! Ask yourself ... where will I focus my time today?
You see, time is a gift from God; we don’t own time; we cannot purchase time; we cannot earn time; we cannot borrow time. Time, my friends, is a commodity that we must treasure. We can capture a moment in time but once the moment escapes, time keeps moving. Have you ever seen something so magnificent that you wanted to capture it, but couldn’t get your phone camera ready in time? That’s why it is important to be ready ... next time! #noregrets
On this WINS-day, don’t waste time or allow others to waste your time. Be mindful of every precious moment of this commodity gifted from God and treasure it, embrace it, and make the best of it! The truth is ... time is the only constant in our lives. We live in a world that is inconsistent and uncertain, and no matter what happens, time will not wait. Eternity is not something to easily wrap our minds around, but time has a beginning and an end. So, be purposeful of every activity and purpose you pursue today for it can work together for the good of those who love God and are called to His purpose! You’ve #gottime! ... don’t abuse it, use it.
