Here Are Eight (8) Points About Time

1- Time automatically records the duration of all aspects of life.

(Like a video camera that records an event every fraction of a second) We are timed of every event that happens in our lives.

2- The Coming Of Time Is Inevitable

If an event is planned to happen or hoped for then it shall occur eventually. If time is used positively and consistently but with patience then everything that is to happen will definitely occur.

3- Time Is Of The Essence

As you read this valuable information that I am presenting to you, time is working for you. It is allowing you to ingest this information of reality.

4- Time Is Busy

You have heard that time waits for no one. Time will also pass you by. That’s why it is best to stay ahead of time. The only time that it is held up is when the clock stops ticking. If you stay ahead of time then you can enjoy the time as you maneuver your way through life.

5- Time Is Our Side

It is on our side when we are ahead of time. We should adapt to getting an early start because of unforeseen obstacles. For examples, the railroad train crossings, a rain, storm or a vehicle accident obstruction just to name a few. Some people like being late because it makes them feel important. However, there are more advantages to being an early arriver. It is better to be on time than to be late. You’ve heard the old saying, “the early bird catches the worm.”

6- Precious Time

Time is described often as precious because when it comes to healing, healing depends greatly on time. A recovery from an operation takes precious time. Recovery from heartbreak takes precious time as well.

7- Historical Time

Time was once upon a time when memorable events happened and personally happened in your life. Some you will never want to forget and some you want to forget. Some you regret and some you wish never happened. One thing is for sure and that is you can’t change what happened in the past so we should use the time we that have now to improve on and not experience something similar to that thairit once happened.

8- The Best Is To Come

Some of us feel that a good event is going to happen. Someone is going to get married. Someone is going to gross a million dollars or more. Someone is going to be the new president, a leader, a winner of a contest, a champion of an event or a master of time; living life in a timely manner, to the fullest, doing all the right things just to have love, spirit, peace and happiness.

Using Time Wisely

Time is the most valuable attribute that a living species can have. As humans it is something that we rely on, take for granted, waste and wait for. As far as aging is concerned, time is something that we don’t want to move. Since we don’t have control of time then the number one thing to do with time is to use it wisely every day. We must use time in order to earn wages for good living. We use time for education, recreation, relaxing and sleeping. Time is so important that it should be unjustifiably wasted. There is always something positive to do even if it is just reading because that is an excellent way to learn and learn how to do things and do thing constructively.

Traveling Time

Time travels faster than the speed of light or speed of sound. We have time to do every single thing in life that we desire to do if we use time wisely. We have all wasted time at one point or another in the past. Today, we try to spend out time much better than the way we have done in the past.

Time Is Used For Rehabilitation

We all heard of the term “Prison Time or doing time.” A person that has received time in prison or joint for breaking the law or being accused and convicted of breaking the law is under rehabilitation time of which can turn out to be positive.

Using Time To The Best Of Ability

If we used time for the betterment of lives and or someone else’s then we have expended it to the best of our ability.

Deploy Faith

Deploy faith instead of allowing self to boredom. Have dreams to become true. Exercise, keep the body functioning positively. Allow self to believe that it has a Godly purpose for which it was born for and for the unique benefit of its own as well as for God. Never be afraid or ashamed to allow God to be the blessing we all deserve in our lives by what Jesus Christ represents to us which is a whole and renewed life after dying to sin.

Poem from a book of Poetry "Love Is Our Law"

It is a matter of time

from twelve in the morning

to twelve past midnight,

from the place you are at

to the places you are going,

from as you are

to as you prefer being.

It is a matter of time

from a dream to reality,

from agony to ecstasy,

from below to above,

from hate to love,

from doing your worst to your best

from living in sin to righteousness.

Why To Spend Time Wisely

Time is the most crucial element in life. Time does not wait for anyone or anything. It continues to move on, faster than the speed of light or any thing. It is impossible to stop time and therefore, we must spend it wisely because time will not ever go back. We cannot go back at a time when something great happened in our lives and relive that moment.

    I enjoyed your analysis of sayings about time and your conclusions. Time is precious resource. We will never get back a single second of it. I loved the music from Youtube too. You introduced me to the Five Stair Steps. The lead singer has a lovely voice. I hadn't heard the Blackbyrds for years! That is a very funky bassline. Very enjoyable and useful hub, word55! Voted up.

    We won't really appreciate how valuable time is until something happens and we realize how little time we have left. That's why it should not be wasted. Great advice.
