Time is a Gift

Time is a gift from God.

I often don’t see it that way. I grumble throughout a bad day and wonder when it will end. I ask Him when I’ll move from this season into the next. From the season in my life I’m unhappy with and struggling through to the next season, which in my mind won’t have these troubles of today.

But time is a gift.

A day has 24 hours, good or bad, they are from God. A bad day will end…but so will the good day…and I don’t want to miss it. My bad day is just a moment in time, no matter how long it may feel. And so is a good day—in a blink of an eye, it will be gone.
Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. (Psalm 39:4 NLT)
In Christ,

I’m joining Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday, where she offers a writing prompt and we write for 5 minutes, without editing or over thinking. Today’s word prompt: Gift. 

Also linking up with Faith Filled Fridays and Spiritual Sunday.


  1. "Time is a gift" this is so true Laura, so true. Like you, I have to remind myself that time is a gift from God, good or bad. Actually, it can only be bad if we take it that way :)


  2. I agree with you...time is a gift...time with Him...time with family...time with friends...time alone. Time to live and think and hope and dream. Your post is a reminder to me to live in the moment. Thanks Laura

  3. "Today is a gift, that is why they call it the "present". Excellent post! Blessings.

  4. So true, Laura. Perspective is everything. And when we step back, we see a bit clearer how precious time is. What a gift!
    Striving to make the most of it. even the bad days... ;)
    All for Him,

  5. Boy, it's so true. The days just go speeding by - the good and the bad. Time is a gift and we should use it wisely. In just a few blinks of the eye this life will be over - for all of us.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
