Watch for God

My friend is so dependent on her wristwatch that she will go back home to get it, even if it makes her late. It seems a bad trade: giving up precious time for a method to measure it. How many of us, though, trade away the eternal for the fleeting? I slip into the habit of thinking that busy equals meaningful. I have no time to sit and listen to my God. The schedule is full—the heart, empty. Time spent with God is eternal. I want a God so immense that He embraces me in all circumstances, so merciful He forgets the past and helps me see the future, a God who can be experienced in every moment yet lives into eternity. I want to say from my heart, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand (Psalm 31:14-15). Another watch will not help; I want more TIME. Time with God.
