Redeeming Moments




We hold within each moment
A brief and twinkling span
Yet, we ought to redeem it
As wisely as we can

For moments linked together
Form more than ethereal ties
But prove, as we redeem them
Where our true love lies


© Janet Martin

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 leads to debauchery. 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.
Ephes. 5:15-20

  1. Janet, this is something I have been thinking about so much lately. How am I spending my time? In this time of troubles within me, is my needing time to just be...is it ok? Or am I wasting the treasure of time we are given? I am learning it is good to have dreams and a sense of knowing there is something I need to do. Sometimes, though, I get stuck in the working it out.

    Thank you for what you have written here.

  2. Emma,
    Thank-you for your thoughts. My dad always told us we need balance...so yes, it's okay to 'just be' sometimes...it balances out the craziness, doesn't it? I think I'm getting old...my thoughts often turn to 'what am I REALLY doing'? but one grace-moments at a time...hopefully,the best that I can in the moment I am in:) and when I don't, to remember a new grace-moment is given!
    Thank-you again for your thoughts and your visit.
