If we could turn back time, we probably wouldn’t. I wouldn’t.
As much as I loved the sweet times of life when my children were young, I still wouldn’t turn back time. I don’t want to re-do my past and I don’t want to un-do it. If I had the ability to turn back time I might make the same mistakes and have to learn the hard way again.
A recycled me is best to leave where it’s going . . . slowly becoming, slowly going forward.
Every crevice in my face is a wise-line well earned. My past has made me strong. It’s been a crash course in people . . . and in God. I don’t want to be as far away from the finish line as I used to be. Yet, I wonder how I got to today so quickly.
That’s the good of today . . . a start-over.
By grace, we all get a today . . . 24 hours. We actually use about 2/3rd of the hours and then we sleep. For many of us, we wake up only to snore through life. We all need a miracle to break out of the place of keep doing till we die.
If our days are merely to take up breathing space while shackled to a daily checklist we need to look at ourselves in the deeper places. What’s in there that time should bring out?
Do you know as of today there are only 91 more todays left before the new year? That means we have 91 opportunities to do what we meant to do with this year, with this life.
Sometimes in life we may feel like we’re not heading anywhere in particular. Just functioning.
If you don’t know where you’re going any road will get you there is the Cheshire Cat’s philosophy. I love Lewis Carroll quotes.
Gratefully, this is not just a journey. There is a destination.
How can we get to the place where Jesus heads the list and all the other is temporary and second?
What do you want from today – to only get through until it becomes tomorrow, or do you want to make it count for eternity?
Today . . . is the day we can make the right choice . . . ask someone’s forgiveness . . . tell someone they’re loved . . . contact the ones who’ve mattered most in our life.
The gift of today.
We can’t sit in the middle of the road waiting for tomorrow while it’s still today.
But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called TODAY . . . Hebrews 3:13
