O Sun Stand Still

Is it just me, or is time spinning faster than I can keep up with it?

I imagined as I was speeding down the road to turn on my street what I’d say to the officer the reason I was speeding. I imagined saying, “I’m trying to catch up with the time. It’s going faster than I can.” I’m glad I didn’t get pulled over and I decided to slow down.

I feel like I can’t get enough done. When I do, I feel like it wasn’t enough.

I asked the Lord today if I prayed like Joshua did, if He’d stop the sun for me just for a couple of hours so I can get caught up on a few things.

Joshua 10:12-14

12 On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel:
"O sun, stand still over Gibeon,
O moon, over the Valley of Aijalon."

13 So the sun stood still,
and the moon stopped,
till the nation avenged itself on [b] its enemies,
as it is written in the Book of Jashar.
The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. 14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a man. Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel!

I shared my thoughts and prayers with my friend next door and she said she didn’t need anymore time and refused to stand in agreement with my petition. Well I went and read the scripture above and it says, “There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man.”

So I suppose that means for me to become a better steward of the time allotted to me.

Therefore, I better get back to taking the laundry out, give a spelling test, take the cat to the vet, pick up some things from the store for the weekend, and get ready to cook dinner.

Ya’ll have a good weekend!

BTW--If you notice the sun out longer today, remember I prayed! LOL!!

Blessings in Christ--
