On the first weekend in February 2012, a thought entered my mind, “why don’t you start writing a blog?” Unsure of where to go or what to do, I consulted a few close friends with similar aspirations. After receiving their insight, I needed to clear one last hurdle, a name which would define the reason for my blog’s existence. 1300 blogs later, I’m astonished wondering, where did all the time go?
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day, 2 Peter 3.8.
There is an old adage that all good things must come to an end. However, when you find something that you enjoy like an activity, hobby or relaxing pastime, time has a tendency to fly by. Whenever individuals invest in leisure forms of recreation, the soul is re-energized. Serving as a distraction from the stresses and worries in life, writing is an oasis for me. Although I occasionally spend too much time on a blog, going in circles without any progress, I find joy in the journey.
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom, Psalm 90:12.
If there was a prayer or wish that would make this world a better place, it would be helping people locate jobs that they love. Unfortunately, love doesn’t always pay the bills. Nonetheless, there is something to be said about discovering an occupation or position that you were born to do. The pressure of making decisions causes many to lower their standards, settling for less than ideal. Therefore, as you wait for the clock to reach quitting time, may God direct your steps so that your dreams will come true. Then, you too will wonder, “where did all the time go?”
