Time Keeps On Tickin....
This morning, I am thinking about time. There are several songs about it. My main thought is this: "Time is the most valuable thing you can give anyone. It is something that you can not take back."
Sometimes, I feel like I waist other people's time. Well, and on the same note, I guess I feel like some have done the same to me.
I will just be honest, starting over in life at 40 has not been a cake walk. I have had some major life changes. Trying to get to know new people and find a balance is not easy. I just want who and what God wants in my life. And what I need to do is get out of His way and let Him work. I should have learned by now that keeping my hand in it has only gotten me burned. I very much dislike being hurt but even more so I hate hurting someone else. Time does not heal wounds, but it does make them scar over and hurt less.
There is a song from 1969 called Turn, Turn, Turn by the Byrds that basically used this Scripture from Ecclesiastes. I think it is so true. Life has these ups and downs, it ebbs and flows. I just need to let life happen. Because nothing I do in and of my own power works out anyway.
Can you relate?
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
