Proverbs 31:25-31 – Time to Read the Bible.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Time.

Do you have some?

can you share?

Do you know

are you aware?

Do you know?

they’re watching you

Do you know?

your actions speak true.

 

Time is all

we have right now

It ticks away

It will allow

You to find

the truth, the way

Time is what

you have today.

 

But time is not

a guarantee

Time is cruel

without mercy

Time is now

to choose your path

Lest you find

your judgment wrath.

 

God is just

God is true

God has promised

what He will do

He will welcome

you inside

Time to choose

not to hide.

Time is now

to choose God’s way

Your time is just

a prayer away.

 

I had such a great conversation on Sunday with two sweet Christian friends. We talked about time. We talked about how precious it is and how we spend our time and efforts. Lately, I have been devoting my time unwisely and I have decided I am going to change that. I have to be aware of time and make each second count. I am so thankful for strong Christian moms that offer love and support along this journey towards Heaven.

So, this is what I have decided I am going to do. I am going to spend more time filling my mind with words from the Bible instead of filling my mind with words from my digital device. I feel lost when I grab my phone. Searching for truth in a world spun out on lies, cheating and sin. My time needs to be better spent.

It’s such an insane act to continue to search in the exact same place and find nothing and then do it all over again minutes later. I refuse to act like a fool anymore. There is truth in the Bible. There is comfort there. I will stop the insanity and reach for my Bible where truth has been alive and well for the last 4000+ years. I feel secure and hope filled when I read my Bible. Security is what I crave and need right now. Security in God – not based on worldly things.

The verses that popped in my mind today was Proverbs 31. I knew verse 25 but I wanted to read the whole chapter. The words struck me. “She is clothed in strength and dignity”. Have I been? Have I really been strong and dignified. Ranting and raving about the last year. Have I learned anything? Yes. I have learned that God is so much greater. He is the King of all Kings. He is the ruler of time, which He exists outside of.

Wanna know a really cool thought. Time – God is not subject to it. But the devil is. He has an end. His rule on Earth will be final and he will be destroyed. Promises in prophetic teaching – comfort that we know who wins in the end. I play for the winning team.

I am fully trusting Jesus. I am going to focus my heart, mind and soul on my Bible. The truth that is in the pages, the comfort it gives me, and prayer. I am going to continue to pray for safety, for justice and for our beautiful country. I am going to pray for wisdom, patience and love. I pray for a more gentle heart towards those that are living in fear. Pray to be a gentle light instead of a lightening bolt.

God created us out of love. He allows us Salvation out of love. In love, He offers us the decision – eternal life in Heaven. But it is a choice. That is the true example of love – having a choice. I choose Jesus today. I choose faith over fear. I choose to grab my Bible every time I feel like I am losing ground. God is my foundation. God is love.
