GRAB YOUR SECONDS

Written by Carla Jane Muega | Essay

Seconds are important for they are the starting point of minutes that turn into hours that turn into days which turn into weeks, months, and years.

The moment the seconds of your life elapsed, you can never grab them back and decide to use them differently.


Grasping this, you will soon realize that small as they are, seconds are precious to you and to God because they are both a creation and a gift of God. The Father has a plan for our life and that goes down to the very second of your life. That's why it's important to put value in every second that you got. In spending our time we should take into consideration how the Father wants us to spend it since we are called to live this life for His purpose and will. No other perfect time to reflect how we spend our precious time than NOW!

The apostle Paul understood this and urges us to "Be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the MOST of your TIME, because the days are EVIL" (emphases mine) in Ephesians 5:15-16.

Taking advantage of every God-given opportunity is to show wisdom.

Opened doors are given opportunities for us to serve God in ways that He also shows us. What we should always bear in mind is we are not guaranteed of second chances so the seconds that you have now may be the only seconds that you will get. It is only wise to be mindful of where our time goes considering that we are bombarded with distractions every day.

Ask yourself: If you only have few seconds left alive, would you rather waste them or redeem them?

P.S. Writing this, seconds of my life passed by and there's no way I can grab them back.

Effectively making use of time while staying at home could mean so many things in our lives. While most people are probably enjoying movies and Korean series via Netflix and some are maybe recording videos for TikTok, this young artist of Passi, Iloilo was productively satisfying himself by making unique, funky and extravagant art pieces.

Travel: Lovely Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort, San Joaquin Iloilo

What can we make if we talk to God in a peaceful place? 
A millenial like me would always want something fun and nice after many days of hectic schedule. I could just frown if I am rushed and pressured by others; to live life fast is something I persoanlly don't like. I don't want to compete with time. I believe that life must be enjoyed slowly.
Traveling is my medicine. It is my way to improve my self. It is one best way to I reflect and thank God, how He made my life so beautiful and perfect. Oh, how I love His gift these days and forever; the "luxury of time". Now, I can definitely say yes to most opportunities coming my way. I have been traveling for free, and more free trips coming my way.

I still can't forget my trip with my friends at Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort in San Joaquin. God really knows when to give a day for rest and fun. It was a quick getaway, but that day was filled with so much fun and so many good memories to keep. In addition, Rosma Pebbled Co…
