Time

Have you ever sat quietly listening to the ticking of a clock?

I decided the other day to turn off everything that distracted me…and sit in silence…I had grown weary of the sound of the television…I didn’t want music softly playing…I didn’t want to check my facebook or instagram…no emails…nothing…

I wanted to just hear the sound of that clock..A gentle reminder that time is running in the background…even when we are distracted…when we are attending to everything else…when we are drawn away…and our attention is swept up in all the mundane things of the day…

time…time hides in the corner…ticking…It is the one thing that we should address…but it is often the one thing that we ignore…time…it is precious…and should be embraced like a dear friend…who we haven’t seen for a long while…we should stop…periodically…and just listen…and as we hear the ticking of the clock…appreciate every second of every day…because time…is a gift…that should never be ignored.

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom

Psalm 90:12

Father help me to stop long enough every day to appreciate the time in that day…make me keenly aware that time is a gift that you have given freely to me…and teach me to relish every single moment…in Jesus name
