BREATHE!-THE little things THAT MATTER
Take a deep breath-IN and then OUT!
Thank you for breathing! LOL
You still are but I want to see something…
What it means to be intentional…
60 seconds make one minute
60 minutes make one hour
24 hours make one day
7 days make one week
To be continued…
Again, my only intention is to point out how we think a lot in the big things of years…
And less in the little things of seconds
This blogger in in a phase of life that constantly pushes her to mouth these words:
I can’t wait for this to be over!
It’s been like this for quite a while with each new challenging stage.
So what do we do when it’s more of days are dragging than time is flying ?
- PAY ATTENTION
My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words –Proverbs 4:20
Recently, the Holy Spirit has been nudging me to pay more attention, to look more intently.
It’s good advice to think big and see the big picture but it’s equally great to reason in moments.
You see, a single genetic mutation can result in a huge deviation from the norm.
So my current phase is for a season and each moment is ticking away that I can’t re-live.
What do I do? Pay attention. NO season is a waste. Every single second counts.
- PROCRASTINATION IS A THIEF
Be very careful, then how you live- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity because the days are evil- Ephesians 5: 15-16
So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin- James 4:17
Have you considered this? The right thing done at a wrong time could be counterproductive?
Procrastination is a killer of dreams, a thief of blessings, just pure evil!
But I’ll stop the rant here-because the onus lies on me to avoid procrastination like the plague!
What are you meant to do in the NOW? Don’t be a victim of Mr. Procrastination anymore. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you’ll be victorious.
Side joke: People procrastinate their getting serious with Jesus for a later time like post-marriage, when the become parents or when they are old and gray. Are you kidding me? In fact, this joke is not worthy of side dish, let’s eliminate it from the menu altogether! Get serious ASAP. Okay, I plead with you.
Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon- Isaiah 55:6-7
- PROCESS IS NOT A BAD THING
You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ- 1 Peter 2:5
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven- Ecclesiastes 3:1
My music teacher in secondary school (high school) should be proud of me that I at least remember poco a poco. It’s a musical term of Italian origin that means ‘little by little”.
This is me telling myself and others to take a ‘chill pill’ without necessarily going for a lazy vacation.
You see, I’m not there yet- process is important for good performance.
Life has a way of trying to make you ‘keep up with the Joneses’ instead of ‘keeping up with Jesus’
Even the latter can be frustrating except you realize that He has promised to be with you every step of the journey. He’s different from the other guy waiting for you to meet him at the peak!
Dear bloggees (status earned from reading this blog post)….
Can we accept that we are being processed at this point. The crunching sound and the entire matter might not be a walk in the park. Choose your Processor wisely. Mine is tried and tested- so I’m safe. I’m taking increasingly awesome form. The finished product is mind-blowing by His grace.
I know this for me. Do you know this for you?
