Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.
Few weeks before the end of last year, I was waiting for an important moment. Unfortunately I cannot tell you the details here. Passionately and with thumping I waited day after day till the time comes.
What happened? For one reason I was late for 10 minutes from the due times. Only 10 minutes, not more! But what I said “ONLY 10 minutes” has successfully made me overwhelmed with regret and disappointment for a few days until I was able to release and let it go.
Apparently only 10 minutes that I have missed but actually I’ve missed a moment that will never come back again. Though finally I could repeat the moment, but I just felt that everything wasn’t the same.
One second delay could mean one’s life for doctors and patients.
Difference of one second as valuable as a trophy of victory for an athlete
And for all mankind that celebrate the New Year, one second could mean one number for one year.
At the last-minute before the New Year comes, all people counting down the seconds until the last second. Then in one blink of an eye number on the calendar has been changed. The year we live is incremented by one number!
We live in a time that continues to moving forward. Time will keep going no matter we appreciate it or not, lagging behind or not! I am grateful to still have an opportunity to repeat the moment of my ten minutes. How about you? Are there valuable things that you have missed?
Did you have some quality time with those you love? Have you had the assurance of salvation for your soul? Have entire of your family receive salvation from Christ? Have you lived in the Lord’s call?
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. (Ephesians 5:15-17)
