Day 7: Time For Change


TIME is TIME

as it

keeps ticking no matter where you are.

TIME always moves forward,

even if you try to rewind the clock,

because TIME is something that you can never get back

no matter how hard you try.

We can't CHANGE TIME but

there is always TIME for CHANGE

because

GOD tells us so~

“FORGET the former things; Do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:18).

Dwelling on & Fixating on

the TIME that has PASSED

inhibits you from living in the present

and facing the future.

Isn’t the future

the unknowns of tomorrow & the “what ifs”

that we fear?

THE PAST

encompasses anything that happens from this second back

to the day you were born.

But how do we FORGET something

that we did or someone else did?

TO FORGET~

To Remember, NOT. To Keep Regurgitating, NOT.

To keep picking off the scab of a bruise, NOT.

Yet

THE PAST

is part of you & I

as it really has happened.

Dwelling on yesterday

& the day before that

& the day before that

is like going up a down escalator

as it keeps you in the same place.

You & I can't remove our past.

Is there something from the past moment that is weighing you down?

Is it~

A wounded heart?

A I wish I didn't do this or that?

A I wish they didn't do this or that?

What do you need to say goodbye to that is following you everywhere,

infecting the present

because you just can't let go?

GOOD-BYE is PRESSING FORWARD~

"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which GOD has called me heavenward in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 3:13).

Oh how JESUS enriches our every second

that turns into minutes

that turns into hours

that turns

into days,

into months,

into years

and then into an ETERNITY where

TIME stands STILL

without sorrow, hurt, grief, and regrets~

"And GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away...”

Because GOD means what HE says and says what HE means~

"Then HE who sat on the throne said,

'Behold, I make all things new.' "

(Revelation 21:4-5)

Because

GOD WILL TURN ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD.OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM

(Romans 8:28).

Therefore

make this SECOND the

TIME FOR CHANGE ~

"GOD TURN IT AROUND" (listen to the song below)
