Time. What a concept. It is past, present, future. If you watch it, it seems to drag on endlessly. I’m always amazed at how much I can get done in 3 minutes. If you don’t pay attention to it, days, weeks, months, years slip by so rapidly you can’t believe how fast the time went.

Remembering the past reminds you how long ago the past really is. Did I really live those moments? They feel dreamlike to me now. The future is only a figment of our imaginations and dreams. Will those things come to pass? Only time will tell.

I met Jesus 15 years ago. He’s been my Lord, Savior, Teacher, and Friend for 15 years! So long and yet hardly. He teaches me that the best practice regarding time is to live in the present. Spend time on the very right now moment. No other moment matters. The past is done. The future isn’t guaranteed. Just this moment.

β€œTherefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:34 ESV

I find so much hope in His words. Whatever I face today, I face with Him at my side. This makes all things possible, whether wonderful or terrible.

‘For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. ‘

Romans 8:18

  1. I met Jesus almost 50 years ago, and I feel the same way — so long ago and yet, hardly. I cannot imagine life without Him. Loved your post. Blessings! FMF#28

  2. Your words are a good reminder for us all! Being present to the day and to our Jesus makes life so precious and abundant. Thank you! (Karen, visiting from FMF #21)
