The Chime of Time

July 19, 2017

Tick-tock, tick-tock

Just a quick blur of a day flashes by, and before you know it, it’s dinner time and the night is winding down.

Where does the time go?! 

I ask myself this question so often, I should probably tire of it by now; but time continues to flit on by — whether I want it to or not.

Tick-tock, tick-tock. So many days I feel as if I am racing against the clock, for there is so much work to be done, and I cannot possibly do it all on my own! On the days where I am feeling overwhelmed and a tad bit stressed with work and the day to day struggles, James 4:14 comes to mind:

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 

We are here on earth for a length of time, and then it is gone, over. Time is our greatest enemy, it never sleeps, never rests, and never stops. So many times we feel as if we have all of the time in the world, and that is a false sense of security that I have come to terms with and now realize, I’ve got to let go. Every second I waste scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram is a second that could be spent on something valuable and more worthy of my time.

I want to encourage you ladies to be intentional in the conscious ways that we spend our time, let us strive to make the biggest difference possible. What things could you be doing with those spare moments to draw you nearer to God?


The Chime of Time

Time is valuable, precious

Time is fleeting, my dear

One second can make you breathless

One second could bring great fear

Time is of the essence

so, darling go and live

There is no time to be messin’

Life’s too short, go and do it big

Every time a moment slips

Your life has went away

I’m not one for giving’ tips

But now is no time to play

Its a race ya know

Against the clocks of time

There is no friend or foe

Until the final chime

Do all ya can while ya can

For every moment counts

At the end, you don’t want to just begin

So, by all means go and settle your accounts

For my dear friend…time is running out!
