If it is worth doing, it is worth starting today.

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

The thought in this title is for me.

I have been thinking of starting to again do some work making jewelry. Since it is a thought, I must examine the basis of the thought. Where does this thought come from? Is it a product of greed? Is it a product of pride? Is it a Holy Spirit motivated thought? I must determine the source of the thought.

I the thought of start doing some jewelry work is because of greed or pride, the thought is of Satan. It is not worth doing. If the thought to start making some jewelry is of the Holy Spirit, it is worth doing. That is when it is worth starting today.

I may not have everything I might need but if I have enough to start, then it is worth starting today. Just because I do not have one special took to do one certain task, that does not mean I can’t start today.

If I have some designs already in mind or some old designs that I could work on, then it is worth starting today. Just because I haven’t come up with some new design doesn’t mean I can’t work on some simple piece today.

When I have decided that it is the Holy Spirit that is urging me, it is time to put that thought into action. It is therefore time to start.

Is it time for you to start a project that has been in your mind lately? Maybe it is God letting you know that it is something you should be doing.

Do we take time to live?

Our lifetime is a small part of eternity. It is only a whisper. Small indeed. What then isĀ  a year compared to eternity? Or a month? Or a week? Or even a day?

When we look at from this perspective, an hour is nothing compared to eternity. Now I have a question. Because we see an hour as nothing compared to eternity, is this why wasting an hour of time seems to be of no consequence?

An hour is an hour. This hour may be our last. What we make of each hour is important, not because it may be our last but because it is an hour God has given to us to use while here on earth during this part of eternity. Eternity does not start when we die but when we are born. We spend what we call our life time living in our flesh and blood bodies. When our flesh and blood bodies die, the spirit God gave us for our bodies continues on and lives throughout the rest of eternity.

The God who created all things and all people, is our savior while our bodies are alive. His plan is to save us for the new heaven and earth Jesus went back to prepare for those who yield themselves in obedience to him. When we die, God becomes our judge. Are we ready? That is an important question, especially if this is our last hour of time to live.

God is patient but our time will come. Our time will end. Are we ready? The New Testament part of the Bible will help you find out. Study to book of Acts after you read the first four Gospels (the stories about Jesus coming.). Jesus is Lord. He deserves reverence and obedience. When we have put him first in our life, our lives will be lived pleasing to God our judge. Email me with your questions:
