Seek the Precious Moments by Becky Fowler Blackmon
As we stand before the microwave and shout, “Hurry!” do have any concept of what it means to be still? Do we seek moments for the blood-covered Savior who died for us on an old rugged cross? Becky Blackmon has answers for us in Seek the Precious Moments. The text is not parallel with most time-management books, but it conforms to the Good Book.
Each of the 13 chapters is preceded by “Time with Becky” relating her experiences with hurrying, building her house for Jesus, and jumping into the deep end of commitment. One of her “times” describes her red-headed mom in trying moments, “She’s Come Undone.” The humorous narrative drives home the pointlessness of hurrying and the lasting benefit of spiritual renewal. From the first chapter, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Gasp!” to the last “Time for Jesus to Take the Wheel,” readers are motivated to seek matters of the soul. Her tips on guiding parents to teach children to know the Lord are especially gripping in the chapter “Time to Love That Family.” Readers participate in short “Pause and Ponder” thoughts and “Keep Seeking” scripture challenges. These “write-it-down” inserts make a life-changing impact on the heart of each reader. The bottom line question of yesterday, today, and tomorrow is, “Will you find the time for Jesus?” Pause, think, peruse, and consider. And with your Bible by your side, Seek the Precious Moments.
