The Clock

Tic Toc goes the clock. As we look at our watches, phones, or the clocks on the walls we are notating the time in relation to our agenda.
As the clock strikes the time for us to get up, we need to put on the whole armor of God and determine to not take things personally.
As the clock strikes time for food, we need to remember that our food selection can cause us to be energized, motivated and Jesus driven, or our food choices can cause us to be sluggish, moody, and followers of self-feelings.
As the clock strikes confrontational time, we need not fear this interaction. We need to seek God’s wisdom, remember the personality and emotional type of the person we are dealing with as well as remember our personality and emotional state as well as our strengths and weaknesses. Also, remember to operate from God’s mercy and grace versus self-pride, self-glorification and operating from a know-it-all spirit.
As the clock strikes, we are overwhelmed. We need to step away from the situation or circumstance and breathe. Take time to seek God’s guidance and know our tolerance limitations.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace” ( Ecclesiastes 3: 2-8 NIV)..
