HE WASTED NOT ONE MOMENT
By Joan G. Allen Pfeiffer
Not one moment was wasted,
His Fields were lovingly sown.
All the first fruits of the fields,
Celebrated at Heaven’s Throne.
This is as much as He gave me for now, but I love it. He never wastes a moment. Every one is decisively planned. Were it not for the sunsets and the sunrises, He created, nothing would grow. Sometimes when I am gazing at the beauty of landscape, if I squint my eyes a little, I believe that molecules are flowing in front of me. Maybe it is just the flowing pollen from the burst of flowers. Thinking as unimaginably as I dare, the quantitative sight washes the spiritual kinetics of science. It appears as a science exam with test tubes and steams cascading in a wash of spirits.
While pursuing this physics of man, the thought of “chasing after the wind”, comes to mind. There is a Biblical verse for this:
Ecclesiastes 2:26 “To the person who pleases Him, God gives wisdom, knowledge, and happiness, but to the sinner He gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a “ chasing after the wind.”
Ecclesiastes 4:4 “And I saw all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”
Ecclesiastes 5:16 “This too is a grievous evil. As everyone comes, so they depart, and what do they gain? Since they toil for the wind?”
Then, in God’s great wisdom of not losing one moment, He says this to encourage the chasing and toiling.
Ecclesiastes 5:19 “Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil – this is a gift of God.”
Huge differences exist between earning money for a living and doing good deeds, or squandering it for one’s own enjoyment.
Laura was married to a very hard-working medical intern. If you ever heard about the “Never-ending Story”, their labor was fashioned for that very movie. The labor was hard work and a pure drudgery to succeed. The stamina required for this penniless position takes perseverance many can not complete to reach the goal of a P.H.D.
Laura worked as well. She had long hours as a nurse and knew the life her husband was facing. There was the goal to complete to help others heal. To heal those who could not afford medical fees. Their journey was ambushed by the prosperous and greed around them.
The people of the country they had promised to, now became a throw away. The lives of many were discarded as seeds that could never grow. Then an amazing thing happened. God’s light shown upon the now gifted doctor, and he awoke to the power of God’s Love. Now… now the heart could melt from ice and watch the first fruits of his medical field celebrate.
Yes, this is now the “Never Ending Story”! No moment will be wasted ever.
