Time is a Gift

Desperate, I throw myself on you:
you are my God!
Hour by hour I place my days in your hand,
safe from the hands out to get me.
Warm me, your servant, with a smile;
save me because you love me.

(Psalm 31:14, 15 The Message)

I’ve always had an interesting dance with time. Some moments feel endless and like I have too much time. Often time feels like I might run out of it. How can that be when each day contains the same amount of hours, minutes and seconds?

As we enter Advent and winter, I was dreading more time inside, more time watching the clock. Time was annoying me so much that I put most of my decorative clocks in a drawer. Then today, as I was getting ready to face a “long” day, it occurred to me time is a gift.

And as a reminder of that gift, I pulled the clocks out of the drawer, reset them and placed them in various rooms as reminders.

Time is a gift. How will you embrace it this season?

  1. Great perspective. I think I dance to the same tune you do! I am learning that a wise thing to do when I begin getting anxious about not being able to fit everything I “need” to do in the hours I have is to just stop, sit down, quiet down, and do “nothing” for ten minutes. I guess that’s accepting and using the *gift* of time, and I find it usually changes my perspective on it completely.

    1. I like that just stop… and do “nothing” for ten minutes…yes, perspective helps everything

  2. Enjoying every moment of every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every night. Thankful.

    1. Awesome! Thankful for your perspective of enjoying time!
