Last month I completed my fourth hike into the Grand Canyon. I keep going back there because I love standing in awe at that giant chasm and thinking about how big, how powerful and how creative God is to make such a wonder.

The Grand Canyon is about 18 miles wide from rim to rim. That’s big. But there is another chasm that is even bigger. It is the chasm between the dreams many people say they have and the actions they should be taking today to achieve those dreams.

Many people dream of starting their own business or writing a book that could be a blessing to others. But they “just don’t have time” to start on it today. There is a chasm between what they see as God’s calling on their life and the reality of their daily schedule.

If that describes you, stop what you are doing right now and think what you can do to close that chasm so you’ll redeem the time.
