January 18, 2017 – Did we miss it?

Did we miss it? – Daily Challenges

Did you see the finish line? I think we missed it.
How could we miss it? It was right there!

Somedays, life can get ahead of us. And before we realize it, too many yesterdays have come and gone and we missed it.

The kids are grown and someone’s calling us grandma and grandpa. (And we keep looking to see where they are.)

Our schedules can be overbooked with too many places to be and too many things to do. And not always enough time for the more pleasurable things in life.

The most valuable commodity that any one of us has is our time;
because when it’s up – we’re done! (And unfortunately, we can’t get it back!)

So, what did we do with our time today?

 

Did we miss it?  –  The Bible says

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

(I think that pretty much sums it up.)

 

Did we miss it? – What else can we do?

So let’s take a look at our daily schedules.

Is every hour filled from sun up to sun down?

Can we find one moment to remember why we’re here: To walk with God!

Webster’s definition of walk – To pursue a course of action or way of life. To be in association with; continue in union.

We are His creation and our creator desires to spend time with us.

Can we find some time today to spend with Him, even if for a moment.
