But one should never expect too much of time. No man who begins a journey knows how it will end. Or when.”
–Louis L’Amour (Callaghen)
“With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!”
–Psalm 119:10 (NKJV)
Just a short note this morning as we have the ol’ steel mount packed and ready to ride. Yep, I checked the cinch, so no worries there. We’re headin’ out to Maryland, so y’all be praying for us. Some of those eastern folk don’t take to us Texicans. Don’t see the Grandson much, so we’re going up for his birthday, oh, and to see our daughter and her husband as well.
We have an idea where we’re going and we have plans on how long it will take us. It’s nice to travel without any real restrictions as to time. In the past we were always in a rush to get where we needed to be. But as far as life goes there is truth in the above quotation. Time goes on, until the Lord ends it. We begin a journey as a baby and we have no clue as to what it will be like. We don’t know how it will end, or when it will end. As we serve the Lord we do so knowing that He has our lives in His hands, and that goes for our time as well.
I’m not sure when I’ll get another Echo out. Sometimes I write while on vacation, sometimes I don’t. It will depend on the “time” I have on my hands. I could take a break, but then again, I feel the urgency to write, to encourage, to exhort, to warn and rebuke. Wake up! Grow up! Get serious, the Lord is coming!
I have often been asked what my favorite Bible verse is. There are so many I like, that I lean on, that I take to heart. I have often found that in certain times of my life some verses “jump out” and mean more to me at that time than other times. Some people hold onto one verse–a life-verse they call it. I don’t have any problem with that, in fact, it is good but we also need the whole counsel of God’s Word. For close to a decade now the following has blessed my soul. This is from the New Living Translation.
“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.”
Talk at you sooner or later; or until I have “time” or take the “time.”
