Day 31: Precious Seconds



TICK. TICK. TICK.

2,592,000 SECONDS

of 2024

have been LIVED by you.

How has your January been so far?

Did you eat the spinach and not the cookie?

Did you run a mile, instead of watching tv?

Did you ___________ instead of _________?

Are you already tired of Winter

and

looking forward to Spring,

so that

Summer will be closer,

so that

 you can enjoy Fall,

so you can get ready for

 Christmas,

so that

you can then

 start your life over again in January.

TICK. TICK. TICK.

Today you have your last

86,400 SECONDS

of January

to spend in any way that you choose.

SECOND by SECOND.

So how are you going to LIVE them

before

you

 enter into

FEBRUARY~

the shortest month,

the groundhog day month,

the LOVE month,

the LEAP year month,

for where there is a bonus day

of 86,400 more SECONDS to live.

BUT

to not only LIVE,

but to take a LEAP. 

TO LEAP

is a

FORWARD MOTION~

"FORGETTING what lies behind

 and straining forward to what lies ahead..."

TO LEAP is to keep jumping with excitement~

"I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of

 GOD in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 3:13-14)

Because

 TO LEAP

makes you purposely jump over hurdles

to go to a place

 that you have never SEEN before,

but you are way too excited to stay in the same place

because you know that it is a place

for where you have to go.

So you take the

LEAP OF FAITH~

"Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]" (Hebrews 11:1).

For FAITH SEES what

GOD desires for you to

SEE

in EVERY SECOND~

 "Finally, _______________ (put your name)

whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by GOD'S word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, _______________,

think continually on these things

 [center your mind on them, _____________,

 and implant them in your heart]...". *

But it doesn't stop here.

For LEAPING is a continuous ACTION~

"The things which you, _____________, have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life],

and the GOD [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you, ____________" (Philippians 4:8-9).

So will you join me and

use your last

86,400 SECONDS

 of January

by taking

A LEAP OF FAITH

to

"FORGET what is behind"

by FORGIVING

yourself for _________

and

by FORGIVING someone else for ___________

and even FORGIVING GOD for _____________.

And take A LEAP OF FAITH

in

"STRAINING FOWARD what lies ahead"

by

FACING your FEAR of __________

by

doing what you need to do

by

doing what you need to stop doing

so that

you WILL LIVE as who GOD created you to be.

TICK. TICK. TICK.

For the TIME is NOW, because you only have NOW.

Therefore,

 make every SECOND count today

by LIVING it with THE ONE who gives you

"EVERY SECOND"

(listen to the song below)
