One of the most common things I hear from people that are over 40, is that time went to fast. Where I sit at the moment I have a marriage, 4 young kids, a business that I am building, this blog which I am building and a strong spiritual walk to devote my time to. I guess you could say that I am in the thick of it, the busy point of life. All of the above are all important time consuming things.
Proverbs 16:9 says, The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. I think one of the hardest discerning moments in life is, what do we prioritise and what do we let go?
I am a visionary, I have a new idea for Breakfast then dinner. My sweet wife listens as best she can while having 4 children hanging off her. It has only recently hit me that life is going faster by the year. We now go to church most Sundays, and hear great words from Pastor Jake from Life Builders church. It strikes us how fast Sundays come around.
One of our greatest things we did a few years back was to free ourselves from Facebook, I know it does connect families that usually wouldn’t see them and is a great place that people really like, but for Niki and I it was a place of never ending social suck. We started a Facebook group that grew to a few thousand and we spent most nights blocking and deleted posts. Around the same time we unplugged from the world, we also gave up TV. At first we were wondering how could we survive without it all. It took about the time frame of about 10 minutes to feel free. We looked at each other and smiled and literally welcome each other back into our worlds. Freedom!
God has lead us both to start an online journey, my talented wife puts together amazing vlogs that marvel the great Steven Spielberg and faithfully posts, even though we are so busy at the moment. I feel God is leading me to do this blog page to go alongside of the online journey of vlogging.
Time is for us going like sand in a siv, but I hope that the quality of our time is there. When we are old and healthy and hopefully wealthy, we will look back on life and know that we have given everything all the life we have.
I hope that as in Matthew where the holy scripture says, But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. that you will give life everything you have. Because as my business slogan says. One Life, One Earth, Live it clean.
God Bless and you i hope that you follow us on this journey and keep reading, as some really exciting guest bloggers are about to write for us.
