In The Blink Of An Eye

My husband and I have a theory. When you are a young child time seems to pass slowly, for it is all proportional to how long you have been alive. The year that you must wait for your birthday to come around, takes so long because if you are five years old you have to wait a whole fifth of your life for it to come around again. However when you are thirty, your birthday is there again before you know it, as it is only a thirtieth of your life, and so seems to come around in the blink of an eye.

With time passing so fast, in our earthly bodies it is so easy to see our growth. The developmental growth between our two year old and our three year old is huge. In fact even seeing the growth in my two year old’s physical capabilities in a two week span is huge.

I wish our spiritual selves could be viewed in the same way as our physical bodies. That we could stand against a wall and measure our growth. That we could walk past that marker and be reminded continually to be striving towards our goal. Sanctification.

1 Corinthians 3 vs 11

“When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.”

There are only two ways to keep growing, by reading our Bible and praying. Like the childhood song goes:

Read your Bible.
Pray every day (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow.

Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink.”‘

May I have a hunger to read the Word daily and a passionate desire to spend the day in continual conversation with my Father.
