So – what will the next three and a half minutes of your life look like? For some, it might be terrific; for others, horrific; for most of us, just the same ole, same ole…
The average song on the radio is about three and a half minutes: Introduction, Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus, Impactful ending…and Repeat. The last one is over, the next is coming and the song I’m listening to is right where I’m at. They mark the miles on our rides to work, church, school or grandmas. They take us the next step in life’s journey. In them we find the places and people that memories are made of. They serve as regular reminders of God’s working in our lives. They provide fresh perspectives for areas of life we have never navigated before. You might say that sometimes they introduce us to new friends.
These chunks of our life reduced to small segments move us from one moment to the next. In God’s great playlist, He allows us a greater glimpse of His goodness and His glory with each … three and a half minutes.
Like anything else in life, we have a variety of choices. Our determination to choose wisely is enabled by knowing where we can find what we are looking for – the encouragement and inspiration of a three and a half minutes well spent. Thanks for making that choice right here!
