Time ticks by at the same rate every day. Yet, some days rush by and others drag. We cannot control time. Time in essence controls us. I watch the clock for meal times, bed times, awake times, screen times. I watch the calendar for school starting, birthdays, Mark's much awaited homecoming and holidays. Time is either my enemy or my friend. It is definitely a love/hate relationship.
Each day time ticks by something amazing happens. My children grow taller, wiser, and smarter. When I rush time I miss all of that growing up. I have to learn to embrace each of these beautiful, hard moments before I spend my life watching time pass me by.
How can I embrace time and enjoy the hard, crazy, loving moments of my life? Kaleb taught me. In a deep conversation with my son, he realized that Facebook was capturing valuable time. In an instant, he deleted Facebook from his phone. Quickly the Spirit spoke to my heart. I needed to delete Facebook from my phone as well. It was taking my time and making me wish moments away. When life is too hard or it gets too crazy in my head or in my home, I went straight to Facebook.
It was my escape.
When life gets crazy, I turn to God.
He is my anchor not this world.
He teaches me how to be still in quiet pastures
. He stills my soul and restores me.
He quiets my heart.
Be still and know that I AM God. Psalms 46:10
