young | at heart

I’ve been mulling over the concept of TIME.

We try to save time, to make time, to stop wasting time, to find time, to be on time, to be in time.

We connect time to our understanding of wealth, to our sense of accomplishment, and we connect it to our sense of failure.

I’m reminded of that sinner on the cross next to Jesus. At the last moment, his destiny was changed.

There still is time.

Our happiness is not intrinsic to time-things. You’re not too old to start something new, or to make a career change. It’s not too late to forgive or make your peace. You’ve not wasted time — you’ve learned valuable lessons.

He is faithful to complete the Good Work He started within you.

And that takes time.
Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Be honest.
Be kind.
Work diligently.
Grow from failure.
Keep dancing.

with two left feet
keep on dancing
beat by beat
breath by breath
hand in hand
step by step
don’t let these moments
slip away
while the world’s still turning

I’m turning 30 in a couple of months, and though there are things I might’ve approached differently if I had a do-over, I’m thankful for every sun spot and wrinkle and gray hair because it’s evidence of BEING ALIVE.

2020 has been weird, but let’s not let the past hold us back from what the future may hold.

  1. This is such a reminder; a beautiful article! Considering how exhausted we all feel at this point in time with the lapse of time in our pursuit of whatever.
    Truly, time is never lost. We can do whatever at any time. We don’t loose time ’cause it ticks forever.
    Happy big bountiful blessed 30 by the way.
    Bonne journée de toute façon!😘

    1. Merci beaucoup, Valerie!

      J’ai apprécie tes gentils mots!

      Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like we place ridiculous standards of success on ourselves, and we measure them according to other people’s perceptions rather than our own. So, sometimes I need to remind myself that walking in obedience to God in whatever season I am in, is more important than ticking items of a checklist with double standards.

      I hope that you are doing well? Thank you for your early birthday wishes (my birthday is on 6 November)!

      How can I pray for you this week?



      1. You’re absolutely right. I am doing well and by His grace I’ll pull out of this stage.
        You can just thank God for making ways for me even though I’ve not yet seen it. 🙂
