Another day, driven from the possibility of opportunity. Ripped from our hands by the weakness of humanity. The seconds, appearing on the day, have exacted their proper respect from unwilling victims.
What was accomplished remains as “was”. And our failures retain the same name. The front of a second is full of potential. Its back is an eternal seal.
Every second becomes like an impenetrable box. They appear predictably, yet mysteriously, then vanish from our grasp. Nothing else in creation is quite like them. In the language of men, seconds are the building blocks of time.
Forgiveness and glory are stored in the one kind of box. Sin and regret have a box of their own.
Yesterday becomes but a wish. We wish we had done more. Or we are forced to wish we had not done.
Today is upon you. Today is upon us all. What will be in the boxes of tomorrow is in our hands right now.
Millions of people prove that it is entirely possible to leave the box of forgiveness and glory completely empty all their lives.
I am up the firm persuasion that it is equally in our grasp to leave the box of sin and regret empty also. But for that you need the power of Christ Jesus in you.
The end of every day must see additions to a box. And each man owns two.
And by the way, this entire concept applies to our thoughts as well. Just because they refuse to unveil themselves to our perceptions, doesn’t mean they don’t have substance. If anyone thought they were in trouble because of their doings, they should realize their thoughts are also vulnerable to condemnation. After all our brain belongs to us.
