Plenty of Time
Author: Sr. Nancyann Turner
The other day, I was doing a transaction at the local gas station. It was taking an extremely long time. I was getting anxious about the long line taking shape behind me. I turned to the gentleman just behind me and told him I was sorry this was taking so long. He replied with a smile, I have time, I have plenty of time. Dont you worry. And as I was leaving, he blessed with the beautiful greeting I hear so often in Detroit, "You be careful out there. Watch your back."
Later, I was thinking more about time. It is true that I, too, have time, plenty of time. I get interrupted often at work and feel stressed when I am trying to finish something. Yet deep in my heart, I know these interruptions are the real ministry.
Yes, I have time. I have plenty of time. All time is a gift.
