Time Is Short

dotOur Thoughts:

As children, we always thought the days were long, sometimes way too long. We grew so tired between breakfast and dinner, often having to take a nap. The question, "When?" often came from our mouths, wondering just when we were 'going to leave', 'going to eat', 'going to bed','going to play'. Seemed we had all kinds of time, as though time, itself, stood still.

Now, as adults, time seems to be getting away from us. There's never time enough to really get anything much done in a day. Takes longer to do a project. The day passes so fast, that it's not long until we are seeing the sun go down, and it seems just a few hours ago, it was coming up. We look into the mirror and think perhaps we've aged so much since last week.

David was anointed by God, and the Bible says that David was a 'man after mine own heart'. [Acts 13:22] But, he wasn't a man without trouble or persecutions. Yet, he held on to God and his promises.

Today, no matter how short the time seems, or how old or feeble we become, we need to hold on to God and his promises, just as David did. As the saying goes, heaven is 'just around the corner'. We need to be as the five virgins who remembered to keep their lights trimmed - stay in the Word, keep our eyes open for him to split the eastern skies. He is coming back, and time for us is short.

dotGod's Thoughts:

Psalms 89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?

dotOur Cup:

Heavenly Father, we know time is short. Help us keep up the work you have for us to do, until the trumpet sounds, and we go to be with you. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
