Whose Time Is It Anyway?

If anyone had told me I could be on time for work, I would’ve laughed.  Yet, when I changed my mindset and accepted responsibility for the PRIVILEGE (not a right, especially not in this economy) of having a job and being given stewardship by God of that job, it took on a new meaning.  It wasn’t just about “being on time,” it became a matter of showing true gratitude to God for His goodness and mercy, and wanting to set an example that would cause others to take notice, evidence of my special relationship with Christ and my desire to please Him.

If you’re the kind of person whose attitude says “it doesn’t start until I arrive,” reconsider your position.  I used to think, “As long as I make up the time, it’s okay.”  However, what a strength to my testimony when people see that I’m where I’m supposed to be when I’m supposed to be there, in place and ready to serve.  Try it – you may find some unexpected blessings are waiting for YOU!

Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

Today, I took time to smell the flowers – literally.  My manager had brought me beautiful hydrangeas on Tuesday.  Yet, here it is Friday, and it’s the first time I took a moment just to inhale the fragrance.  Don’t get too busy to appreciate and embrace the beauty all around.  Don’t let life pass you by in a blur.

“He hath made everything beautiful in his time…”

(Ecclesiastes 3:11)
