“This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
(Psalm 118:24 KJV)
If you could TIVO your life, what parts are worth seeing again?
There is a wonderful gadget on my television, it’s called a TIVO. It records.. movies, news and other broadcast to insure that I don’t miss them.
I can.. anticipate upcoming broadcasts and often get replays of old broadcasts, all..with a touch of the remote.
While watching a taped episode of “Bonanza” last night, my mind drifted on..the question . What if life offered a TIVO experience? It would be.. interesting to see the replay of all the episodes that happened in my life.. that I missed while I was doing what I thought was important. I probably..missed a lot.
Fast Forward. There’s a life coming up, I don’t want to miss any of it. Too..bad I can’t TIVO it and cut out all of the commercials and obligations: .. reading, studying, praying, serving, earning a living and all of that..mandatory stuff. It would be really neat if I could just get down to the.. part where I will be blessed. If I fall, I can skip to the part where I get..up on the TIVO edition of my life. .. That would be cool! Skip what I don’t.. like and zero in on the good parts! Is there anybody out there that sells.. one of these life TIVO’s?
Unfortunately TIVO’s only work on television sets, not human lives. We have..to live one day at a time, commercials and all. We can’t skip the tears and..go straight to the smiles; neither can we skip the pain and jump to the joy...We must live each day one day at a time.
Seize the moment! Live in the present! David said, “This is the day which.. the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Today is a gift from.. God; take it and squeeze every ounce of joy out of it! Today is the next..installment of your lifetime episode...No TIVO! .. Your Movie’s on! ..‘This is..the day’, live in it.”
