Time Flies

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It has been a month since Christmas! Wow? Time seems to zip by faster each day. There was a time in my life when I could remember every week and month and year. Now I remember decades more easily than I remember individual years. Time seems to go by so quickly.

When Billy Graham was asked what had been his greatest surprise in life, he answered, “The brevity of it.” That is so true. Time marches on...

Scripture certainly echoes this idea of shortness of human life. Job said , “Now my days are swifter than a runner; they flee away, they see no good.” (Job 9:25) King David said, “Indeed , You have made my days as handbreadths, and my age is as nothing before You; certainly every person at their best state is but                                                           vapor.” (Psalm 39:5)

And James posed this question: “For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.“ (James 4:14) James wasn’t asking a philosophical question, but a more descriptive one. A better way to translate it would be, “What sort of life do you have?”

“What sort of life do you want to have?” How you are determined to use God's gift of time, will go far in determining the answer to this question.

As we ponder TIME and God’s gift of chronology to each of us, let us each take PAUSE.  Check out a Terry Hershey video clip  http://www.terryhershey.com/be-inspired/video. You will find these clips to be inspirational tools of God that will transform how you see time in your life. Better yet, this week I commend to you, that if you have not yet signed up for the Terry Hershey workshop coming this Saturday, that you PAUSE to do so right now! ….Click here to sign up.

Terry Hershey will be our guest preacher this Sunday. See you there!

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
