Okay, now it’s time to write! Let’s go …
Some of us are recent grads or still in college, and we feel like we have all the time in the world to live life full, chase goals and dreams, explore and adventure.
Some of us recently retired and are wondering what to do with all this extra time on our hands.
Some of us are chasing toddlers, changing diapers, wiping up endless cups of spilled milk, and the days pass ever so slow and we wonder if this chapter will ever end.
Some of us are hanging on by a thread, living on borrowed time.
We hear it in the news every day, how this celebrity died last night, and that teenager was killed in a car accident, and it sobers us.
It opens our eyes to see that really, we’re all living on borrowed time.
We don’t know what tomorrow holds, or if there will be a tomorrow.
We make grand assumptions and put things off, thinking we’ll do it later. But it doesn’t take long for life to turn upside down, and the plans fly everywhere, loose papers in the wind.
So we seize the day, and heed the words that time waits for no one.
And we put our hands to the plough and push forward, praying that God would get the glory for our every breath until He deems that exhale our last.
It may be today; it may be tomorrow. It may be forty years from now, or twelve, or five. But with whatever time we have left, may we praise our Creator, in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
The time He gives is a gift — and the measureless time ahead in His presence will only be better.
