Busy being happy

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:33 pm

Ecclesiastes 5:20 For he will not much remember the days of his life because God keeps him occupied with joy in his heart.

This is one of those verses that caused me to stop and scratch my head.  Not remembering the days of my life because I’m busy and full of joy?  Surely the happy days are the memorable ones.  Or are they memorable only in comparison to the average days and the bad days?

Maybe this is summed up by the saying “time flies when you’re having fun”.  Good times seem to fly by so fast whereas pain can take an eternity to pass.  The most blessed life is one that’s so busy and joyful that I barely have chance to notice it passing.  It’s a life spent in Your service and filled with Your joy.

Lord may be days be full and fast.
