Tick, tock, tick, tock


Time keeps moving, everything is temporary, nothing is truly permanent.


Tick, tock, tick, tock


I stop and glance at the clock. Another second has passed. I glance at the calendar. Another day has gone by.


What have I done with those precious moments that are now behind me? Did I worry, did I fear, did I panic?


So many months without an income, children to feed, bills to pay, a car to fix.


I take in another breath, and then another and then another.


Tick, tock, tick, tock


I close my eyes.


I surrender it all.


Lord, no more wasted precious moments. Help me to remember everything is temporary.



Consider the lilies of the field.


Consider the sparrow.


Consider the cross.


My hope is in YOU.
