Often in this life, we don’t spend nearly enough time with loved ones as we would like. What if we had 300 days to spend exclusively with the people we love? Work would not get in the way, or if it does, one person would go to work with the other. There would be no scheduling conflicts. In fact, people would not even consult their calendars before making plans. They would be adventurous.
“That is not very realistic,” you say.
“What?” I say. ”It could be. If you wanted it enough, it could be realistic. Anything is possible.”
Isn’t that written in the Bible? ”With God, all things are possible?” Matthew 19:26. Look it up. Tell me what Jesus meant by that. Did he mean that something was only possible if you think it is? No. Jesus literally meant WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Did he mean that without God, nothing was possible? Looking at the state of the world today, I can see how that works. People all over are fighting to eradicate God from their lives, from the world. But as long as there is a tiny bit of faith, even as small as a mustard seed, it won’t work. Belief has power. It’s like Henry Ford said: ”Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.”
Don’t be so closed-minded to how you spend your time. If you want something, even the tiniest bit, you have the power to make it happen. You and God combined have the power to make it happen.
Would 300 days be enough? Or would we, with our selfish human natures, want more? One day, time won’t matter to us anymore, because we’ll have eternity. Until then, it is up to us how we spend our time. Is this how you want to spend it?
