Now as Paul reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, "Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you."
Acts 24:25 (NKJV)
Our household is blessed to not live from paycheck to paycheck, though I sometimes joke that we live from tax return to tax return. We are not paupers where money is concerned.
But where time is concerned, I see myself as a pauper. Like the widow with two mites who gave it all to the Lord, I willingly give Him the little time I have and ask Him to look after me where more seems needed.
This spring turned me on my head. Rather than recount all the pressures to overtake me, I will simply confess that I allowed urgency to press upon those two mites of time always given to the Lord, and I suddenly found myself without the time needed for emergencies.
If I think I must wait for a surplus of time before I start giving Him the two mites again, I will remain the poorer.
If I think there will be a more convenient time to speak of Him again, I believe a myth.
My life still feels overwhelmed with urgency. This is not a convenient time to start blogging again. But since convenient seems to be a myth, I'm back anyway. I look forward to seeing all of you again.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
Ephesians 5:15-16 (ESV)
