Time is not your enemy

Following is an excerpt from the book, Choose!

We see time as the enemy. Something we work against. Something that works against us, robs us of life, cheats us out of youth, health, and happiness. Milton called time “the subtle thief of youth.”

We consider time the upturned hourglass whose last grains of sand fall through the aperture while we watch helplessly. A fleeing rabbit to be chased and, by some miracle, trapped.

Yesterday holds a log of lingering woes and fading memories. Tomorrow appears a gathering storm or the bottomless pit of our good intentions. Today we fight a fog of uncertainty clogging along in our daily routine.

But our despair about time wastes it. The Now is where we live. This moment is not merely “all we have,” as if it were little enough, but the gift of God to enjoy, the plenitude of life’s possibilities, the flower in full bloom.

Today draws loved ones near, the present makes plans come to fruition, this moment breathes the air of all that is.

Mick Jaggar, not my favorite philosopher, said, “Time is on my side, yes it is.” He’s right, if I choose today.

The choice, then: to fritter time away by the minute and hour, or to choose today as my day to live, to shine, to love, to laugh.

Choose! makes a great personal or group study, with questions at the end of each of its 13 chapters. Get it here.

‘Choose’ book in final stages

The remaining chapters from the UPLift material for the “Choose” book have now been formatted. (The title is still up for grabs.) I still have one, possibly two, chapters to write, and these will be material exclusive to the book, not to mention extensive revision and addition to the other material.

I’m excited about this material getting into print. One brother has used it in evangelism classes, which I’d never considered. It will have a wide range of application, to personal life, business, spiritual life and ministry. The book deals with some basic principles inherent in all these areas.

The book should be available in time for graduation. It will make a tremendous gift to high school and college grads, since it deals in wisdom principles that will guide youth and adults alike, and especially to help the graduates get off on the right foot.
