00464 - When Time Slows Down

Life can be ordinary one minute, and the next, we find ourselves in a moment so memorable it feels like time has stretched to capture it all. Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 (ESV), starts with this: "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." The verses go on to speak of a time to weep, but also a time to laugh; a time to mourn, but also a time to dance.

In those moments of celebration, a wedding, a birth, a personal victory, your senses are heightened, it's almost as if you can feel the joy settling into your bones, becoming a part of you. Those moments become landmarks in the timeline of life.

So, when you find yourself in one of these magical moments, soak it all in. Know that you're experiencing a divine snippet of time that'll enrich your life's tapestry. Beautiful, isn't it?

Quote A memorable experience will walk with you for the whole of your life.


Heavenly Father, thank You that my memories will last a lifetime. Amen.
