Tuesday's Tip to bENCOURAGEd...

Time can seem to fly by, but does it really, or do we simply allow it to slip away? Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years are merely man's way of calculating the distance between where we have been and where we are going, but NOW is the "present" that God gives us. 

As someone who believes in planning I enjoy deadlines, (I like to call milestones, because when you accomplish something it should be a building block not an ending block), because it helps me stay focused on a project. But really it is in the smaller daily choices, the now choices, that make the biggest difference.

We are called human beings and to "be" is a now word. As a "being" we were created, by God, to make now count. One of my favorite Verses is Gen. 1:3, "And God said, Let there be light, and there was light,". God did not say someday there will be light or on Tuesday light will shine, NO, He said let it be!

Years ago I believe God whispered in my heart the words, "IT IS TIME,". Since then I have been learning what this means. For people time is constantly in motion, but I believe that for God time IS. "IS" is a now word too. So for me, I remind myself that in order to BE the time IS NOW.

So how do we live now? Here are some NOW tips…

  • A person comes to your mind - call or text them NOW, even if it is a short message - it is good to give encouragement or a quick response instead of forgetting to do it later

  • An idea pops into your head - write it down, text, or call yourself NOW - ideas can float away as quickly as they floated in so tie that idea down.

  • Your car fuel tank is close to empty - fill it up NOW - this one is just for me if not for you - those who know me well know that I hate taking pit stops, but a pit stop is better than being stopped in a pit :(

It is important to have a vision and to learn from our past, but the real power is what we do right nowNow is a powerful "present" that requires us to take action today. When we begin to set our clocks to the time of now we will then accomplish more of what will help us bENCOURAGEd Today!
