How Much Time is Enough?

It may seem overwhelming at some point, but trust me when I say that the joy of achieving a dream, far outweighs its struggle and stress on the process of fulfilling it. The depth to tap success is pointing out to a certain limit of time, wherein if it goes beyond the time frame and success hasn't been hit yet, we end up frustrated and disappointed.

Time has its own terminal point. The book of Psalm 90:10 tells us:  "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." There is a designated moment to settle things out because it has its own perspective.  Our lifespan is too short. How much time do we have to bond with our loved ones, to say hello to our friends, to go outing with family, to hug and say we love them. And how much time do we still have to fully do the task that God wants us to accomplish?

Life is too short to be wasted. Every moment wasted is a lifetime. And redeeming the time is
momentous. As the clock ticks to a second, a minute, or an hour has always a precious work to do. A vital task comes along, with every beat of the heart and every move of the clock’s hand. If we miss the task done, we would again wait for the time designated for it to be done. Do we still have enough time for tomorrow? Can we borrow the time tomorrow to do the task we missed yesterday?

 People work hard to earn, and stress out so much to save and accumulate resources just to die and leave everything behind amiss. The book of Matthew 6:19-20 emphasized;  "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal.” 

But on the other side of it, we can mesmerize how awesome the Lord is. We can testify God’s favor and grace and how God blesses. One thing to remember; God blesses us so that we can be channels of blessings to other people who are in need. We can be lights to shine in the midst of darkness and a salt to savor emptiness.
