Do you ever wish you can stop time?

In the Bible there is a story of Joshua when he “stopped time”.

‘Joshua stopped the sun’ 3,224 years ago today, scientists say

Researchers claim epic Biblical story is earliest account of annular eclipse that occurred on October 30, 1207 BCE; also helps pinpoint reigns of Pharaohs Ramesses and Merneptah

Chapter 10 of the Book of Joshua relates that soon after Joshua and the Israelites entered the Promised Land, they waged battle against five armies which laid siege to the Gibeonites. Joshua had promised to protect the Gibeonites, so he led an army and defeated the five kings. Joshua prayed that God help the Israelites in their battle by stopping the sun: “Then Joshua spoke to the Lord on the day when the Lord delivered the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel: ‘Sun, stand still [dom] upon Gibeon; and you, Moon, in the valley of Ayalon.’” (Joshua 10:12).

Time as we know it keeps ticking, let’s make our special hours and days count. While you are in the moment, treasure it, keep the minutes close to your heart where live lives on… This, is a way we can essentially “stop time” like Joshua did.

Here is to the Amazing Bible lessons/stories, God has given to us. “ Keep praying and never cease”. Just like Joshua stopped time, let us hold each special minute, so close to us that it feels like we too “stopped time”.
