When we operate with eternal vision and perspective, time ceases its flippancy. It values time simultaneously as a great non-issue (as the condition and choices of the spiritual heart matter more than time with passes or conditions and environments surrounding them) and as invaluable in that all these choices need to be made in the short duration of grace while we are living in the physical realm. It is simple to make these choices in the light of eternal choice of destination but gets much more complicated with the myriads of distractions and temptations. See, our enemy knows the simplicity of salvation and that God wins and has won. So our enemy creates distraction to lure us out of protection to join him in his eternal damnation. Of course, he lies about that too and promises so many beautiful things he cannot supply and has no intention of if he could.
So remember the deep time and keep am eternal perspective and tell the distractions to go to hell without you and run from them. Remain secure in the love of God and salvation through Jesus Christ. Nothing else matters much. ❤
She and I rarely have quality craft time together. We draw and color but we both love getting crafty and serious imagination – stretching takes serious time. Today we got it. It was just us two all day. We hit the park, hit the craft store, grabbed lunch and got home to craft. We set up, started, rewatched the great ideas we found on youtube, continued, and waited for paint to dry. Fabulous day!!!
A full day with your child doing what they love is an investment in them. Think about it. Why does God tell us to pray continually? Because He wants to show us love, spend time with us, heal us, strengthen us, develop us, etc. He is our example of a perfect Father, a perfect parent. So thankful for today!😄❤
It takes some people a lifetime to forgive themselves, much less other people. In stark contrast, it takes Jesus one second to forgive us when we humbly ask Him to. Us forever, Jesus one second. And even better than that, Jesus forgets it entirely. How cool is that?!?!❤
I will do less that doesn’t matter am more that does.
I will be a better servant of God, my family and humanity.
I will teach my children meaningful lessons.
I will strive to honor God in everything I do and say.
The past is gone, the present is a gift worthy of intention, respect and appreciation and is in God’s hands, and the future is in God’s hands.❤
Staying close to God requires that you put the things that are not God down. You spend dedicated time with Him. You humbly pray. You read His Words, the Bible. You worship. You just chat. You stay close to God like you stay close to your best friend. But you have an advantage with God in that He is always with you, always available, living in your heart. ❤
Time moves at astounding speed when you wish it to relax. Time does not wait, shows no compassion for your goals, makes no apologies for marching on. Time flies like the gnat, unable to be harnessed and ridden. It bring to bare the behest of its Maker. Time flows in a rush, some great hurry it is in drives it onward. Time must be pressing onward for eternity where it can retire. It is hurrying to its rest. Time selfishly pushes all with it as it rushes to respite and we to eternity with our Maker, it’s Maker, the God of the Universe who constructed time for our eternal destination countdown and Who is unaffected by its implementation, by its existence and task. Time is obeying it’s Master. It will end soon. We must prepare for eternity and throw off the carnal. This would be wise.❤
I walk in the mornings again, back to my normal routine. And while I walk, I have time to contemplate life. This morning I simply walked with God. I worshiped, I chatted, I appreciated, and it makes me very joyful to spend one on one time with my Maker/Heavenly Father. I know He knows every tiny detail of my life and heart and has chosen to love me anyway. Other people care about me, a few even love me and that is so beautiful, but I doubt even the greatest person on earth could still love me knowing every detail of my life and heart. At least one thing would be off putting or they would run screaming into the hills. Well, maybe not that bad lol. But it is a beautiful thing to know and speak with God who made us all and tells me in His Bible that He is my Heavenly Father and loves me not matter what. Who loves like that? Think about it because He loves you like that. Of course He wants us to humbly obey because His holiness demands justice but we do our best and pray and ask forgiveness and He forgives AND forgets. Amazing! God is soooooo good! I love Him. I would encourage you to take a walk or sit a spell with God today and find a time to do it every day. He blesses and rewards such obedience.
