Time rolls in and out of our lives. We look back and can’t believe our college days or parenting time are over. Days turn into weeks that turn into months. Then, soon years have turned into decades and we wonder where has all the time flown.
We need to consider the present and make sure we don’t waste the time we have.
So often, we look back and realize we could have done so much more with the time we have been given. I heard it said once that no one on their death bed wished they had spent more time at the office. Instead, thoughts of time missed with family and friends is regretted.
Let’s not live in regret and pursue our purpose with passion.
Find the drive in you to do what God has wired you to do so you can be all you can before the sands of time run out on your allotted time here on earth.
That is so true so make time each and every day to spend with the Lord.
And another thought to consider is the names of our present days of the week came from pagan deities, planets, or names in mythology. We should probably change their names. A quick google search and you will learn that Thor, the god of thunder, is where we get the name of the day of the week called Thursday or Tuesday is named after Tui, the god of war. And although it is obvious once you hear, perhaps you hadn’t considered that Sunday and Monday were named for the sun and the moon.
The point is we need to look to the God who created those planets. He desires us to be about His business no matter how the days were named or what they represent. He is The One true God worthy of our praise and time. And I do believe, without Him daily by our side the days of the week will definitely feel weak.
