Slowing down time or speeding it up…

WordPress recently asked if I would rather have the ability to slow down whenever I wanted or to speed it up, which one would I choose… My answer, to slow it down. I do understand that during some unpleasant circumstances in life one may be tempted to want to speed through them, but at this point I’ve learned that life is a big school and if you miss the test and the lessons they just come right back.

What things would I slow down life for?

  • A nap
  • A moment of worship
  • A moment spirit filled
  • A moment of quality time with the ones I love.
  • A conversation with a long lost friend
  • A moment looking at a sunset
  • The moment to make a critical decision

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching.A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.

As always I’m interested in your opinion.What would you do?

  1. Yes, the older I get, the more I want life in general to slow down. There’s so much to see, so much to do, so much to savor – there’s not enough time. And yes, I realize there’s so much that even if I started at day 1 doing and seeing and savoring all that I possibly could, there still wouldn’t be enough time.

    God is magnificent, isn’t He?

    Just think of all we’ll have to see, do, savor when we get to Heaven – and an endless amount of time and energy to do it in. Hallelujah!!!
