How often during the morning devotional and prayer time do you ask God for more time, for time to slow down, or that would find more time? It’s an age old problem, isn’t it?  

Time is the great leveler. It is the one resource that is allocated in absolute democratic terms. Every living person has the same number of hours to use in every day. Busy people are not given a special bonus added on to the hours of the day. The clock plays no favorites.

"Remember how short my time is!" (Psalm 89:47)

The inventor of the world's first clock is punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift. He is banished to a cave for centuries and forced to listen to the voices of all who come after him seeking more days, more years. Eventually, with his soul nearly broken, Father Time is granted his freedom, along with a magical hourglass and a mission: a chance to redeem himself by teaching two earthly people the true meaning of time. 

He returns to our world - now dominated by the hour-counting he so innocently began - and commences a journey with two unlikely partners: one a teenage girl who is about to give up on life, the other a wealthy old businessman who wants to live forever. To save himself, he must save them both. And stop the world to do so.

We all have an equal measure of time in every day. Where we differ from one another is in how we redeem the time allotted. Do you find yourself saying; “I can have 10 minutes for this, 1 hour for that, OH my GOSH I gotta go…it’s TIME to pick up my kids for … or …get them there… OK, now I will do this for 5 minutes.”  

If that’s where you are “times up”. It’s time to use the time you have better and redeem it.

"See, then, that you walk cautiously, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:15, 16
