Michelle and I met through Facebook and have become prayer partners.
She is an amazing woman of integrity and joy who practices what she preaches, even as she battles cancer. She knows what it is for Satan to steal your joy and to get it back again through the strength and power of the hope that only Jesus Christ offers.

It’s held me back, fed my insecurities, and even eroded my own joy. But Michelle’s wise and encouraging words gave me hope as she leveled the playing field for everyone, negating the need to compare.

There are so many distractions, things, people, events, opportunities, and responsibilities vying for our time. Wanting, needing, demanding your attention. There are your own goals and ambitions to consider. Not to mention hobbies and the need to rest.

When you look back over the year, what do you see? What thoughts are running through your mind? Emotions coursing through your heart?
What is your attitude about saying goodbye to 2018?

It’s a great equalizer, isn’t it? Everyone has the exact same amount of time in a day, a week, a month, a year. The clock ticks are the same for you as they are for me. For the CEO of a fortune 500 company and for the homeless person on the street.
We can’t buy, sell, or store it. We can’t really save it, invest it, or erase it—even though we like to say we can. We can’t control it; speed it up or slow it down. We can’t stop it. And once it’s gone, we can’t get it back…ever.

Ok, you guys, here is a page from one of my personal Quiet Time Journals. Ignore the spelling and grammar errors, please. 🙂

It’s a strange concept, isn’t it?
