Thoughts for Year 2022

Is it just me, or did it seem like the year 2021 just sped by? And not only that, but we have 8 years to go in this decade!

It seems the older you get, the faster time goes. When I was in elementary school, time seemed to crawl at a snail’s pace. Now, not only years go by quickly, but so do entire decades!

I read an interesting thing about what time it is in your life.

  • If your age is 15, the time is 10:25 A.M.

  • If you are 20, the time is 11:34 A.M.

  • If you are 25, the time is 12:42 P.M.

  • If you are 30, the time is 1:51 P.M.

  • If you are 35, the time is 3:00 P.M.

  • If you are 40, the time is 4:08 P.M.

  • If you are 45, the time is 5:15 P.M.

  • If you are 50, the time is 6:25 P.M.

  • If you are 55, the time is 7:34 P.M.

  • If you are 60, the time is 8:42 P.M.

  • If you are 65, the time is 9:51 P.M.

  • If you are 70, the time is 11:00 P.M.

I dont know where that puts you, but for me it’s about 8:00 P.M.

Getting older

Now, believe it or not, getting older is not a depressing thought to me. I don’t wish that I was 21 or 31 years old again.

That’s because each year has been an adventure, walking with Jesus Christ and watching His plan for my life unfold.

A time for change

The start of a new year is a great opportunity to make changes.

I heard about an interesting custom celebrated in Italy every New Year’s Eve. As the evening approaches, the streets are cleared. There is no traffic and no pedestrians. Even the policemen take cover.

Then, at the stroke of midnight, every house’s windows fly open to the sound of laughter, music, and fireworks. Each member of the family tosses out old dishes, detested ornaments, hated furniture and a whole catalog of personal possessions that remind them of something in the past year they are determined to wipe out of their minds.

Perhaps some of us need to do that as we say our final goodbye to 2021.

Some thoughts from the apostle Paul for 2022

I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it,[a] but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. Let all who are spiritually mature agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you. Philippians 3:12-15
