Today is a new month and almost the end of the year. Where have the last ten months gone or the past two years?

Time is something that cannot be purchased. Everyone of us has the same amount of time everyday, yet we find excuses in how we waste it. Once time is spent it is gone, just as the sand in an hour glass dissipates into nothing and we can’t turn back the clocks, but try to flip the hour glass upside down only to live in the past.

“Redeeming the time because the days are evil” Eph. 5:16

Time means Kairos.
Kairos (Ancient Greek: καιρός) is an Ancient Greek word meaning the right, critical, or opportune moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos (χρόνος) and Kairos. The former refers to chronological or sequential time, while the latter signifies a proper or opportune time for action.

Notice the right, critical, or opportune moment.

I like to look at time as an investment because I can choose what to do with it or who to be with., and even help out with a good cause to help make a difference. I can also be foolish in my time being selfish doing what I want to and forget about loved ones and friends around me.

There is a time to speak and listen in the right moment. A time to laugh, to cry, to mourn, to speak, and to forgive.

I catch myself wasting time like watching too much TV, the news, sports, movies, hobbies, and social media like FB, etc. There’s a place for it, but too much and excess waste is not good. Just a big waste of time. Commercials and advertising consume such a waste of time.

God waits for each of us everyday to invest time with Him in an intimate relationship rather than a duty driven by guilt. The key I have found is to be self disciplined and make the time and priorities for what is important, rather than make excuses.

Redeem the ‘Kairos’: making the right critical, or opportunity. In the ‘fulness of time’ Kairos, Christ died for us expressing His love unconditionally to a hurting and suffering world.

“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine which is dissipation. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”.
Ephesians 5:15‭-‬20

Friend make the time to make a difference in these days of high anxiety and stress

Greetings! My name is Andy Provitola and I live in New England on the south shore between Boston and the beautiful Cape Cod region. The purpose of my blogging and writing is to encourage you in your journey here on planet earth. Life is full of pressing issues and problems and my desire is to discover a place for peace, hope, healing, and contentment. I am a follower of Jesus Christ – God’s one and only Son of God and discovered these truths along my own personal journey. Having discovered a personal relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ does not mean I have to be religious to attain the rewards of heaven. The fact is God provides grace for us and accepts us as we are in His image. In other words, we cannot attain heaven or life eternal on our own, but by God’s loving grace and no merit of our own. My goal is to continue to find a balance of life from a spiritual and practical perspective with a purpose to please and glorify God in all that I do because of His ‘Gift of Grace’. God is not transcendent and so far away that he is out of reach with humanity. God desires that His presence lives within us and not just in the galaxies and the universe. Experiencing the unconditional love of God has been so rewarding and while discovering the truth and purpose for my life. Moving forward in this life is not a sprint, but a marathon when it comes to this race here on earth. I am blogging because I find it is a good way to connect in a much more effective and efficient way when it comes to communicating and interacting with with people that I do not know. Blogging and writing challenges me and also stretches me specifically in my thoughts, my mind, my emotions, and my spiritual life to live a vertical relation with God and a horizontal relationship with others. There will be a variety of topics and subjects to address including youth, young adults, family, singles, seniors, relationships, etc. Some of the topics will include God’s creation and power, depression, loneliness, suicide, hope, healing, setbacks, financial matters, business, stress, anxiety, care, encouragement, and so much more I would like to connect with all walks of life, ethnicity, culturally, other religions, socio-economics, and more I am currently writing a book and several memoirs about my own life and journey . The journey begins at a young age growing up in Malden, Massachusetts, specifically Maplewood Square to where I am today. I became paralyzed from the waist down as a senior in high school and I share how my life changed for the better! “But I do not consider my life as something of value or dear to me, so that I may [with joy] finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus. To testify faithfully of the good news of God’s [precious undeserved] grace [which makes us free of guilt of sin and grants us eternal life]. Acts 20:24 Amplified Version
