I believe we all have those moments when we wonder, “What do I have to show for the last xyz weeks/months/years?”
As Spring Break came to a close, I was disappointed to realize that I didn’t have a lot to show for 5 days without obligations, besides trying to recover lost sleep, lollygaging around town and reading some fiction books. Although, I completed some of things on my to-do list, I failed to complete them all. Wasted time is something I, nor anybody else can get back once it is lost! However, the more I thought about my time off from school, the more God showed me that my productivity was not physical or intangible, but the exact opposite.
My relationships with God and my family are the most important things in my life, and yet they cannot be seen. Love, doesn’t have an appearance, like water or flowers. We can only see the evidence of love, and a person’s response to love, but we cannot see love itself. Just like we cannot physically see rest or peace, but we know how great they feel!
So as I ask myself, “What do I have to show for the last week?”, I can answer, “Absolutely nothing!” I can’t show all the love, rest and peace I have gotten…I can only feel it!
With that in mind, you probably have completed a lot more in your life, than you initially thought…congratulations!
