“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.” ~ T. S. Eliot The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Sometimes it seems like the clock moves faster for some people than others. It especially seems that way when things are taking longer for us than we expect.
The truth is this:
“The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” ~ C. S. Lewis
Whether you are measuring out your life with coffee spoons or a 60 minute an hour clock, time moves the same speed for all us. We all have the same clock, the same calendar, the same process for preparing for the future.
Preparing, working, waiting and believing is the way it works for all of us. No exceptions. Even when we get weary in the waiting part.
Unless you have a time-machine, you should enjoy the journey.
Enjoy every minute.
Enjoy every hour.
Enjoy every day.
Enjoy every coffee spoon.
And keep preparing. Your appointed time is closer than when you started reading this.
“The vision will still happen at the appointed time. It hurries toward its goal. It won’t be a lie. If it’s delayed, wait for it. It will certainly happen. It won’t be late.” (Habakkuk 2:3 GWT)
