It’s all about time, isn’t it?
What time is it?
What time do we need to be there?
What time will it be over?
Do we have enough time to get that done?
Will we use our time wisely or waste the precious commodity that it is?
We only know this; once time passes, we can never get it back.
Almost everything we do is based on and measured by the seconds, minutes, hours and days that tick by. Because of time, or more so the lack of, we often find ourselves feeling upset, disappointed and anxious about many things: work, school, relationships and recreation.
So limited we are by time.
So confined we are by time.
So de-fined we are by the tormenting tick-tock-tick-tock.
A great comfort to my busy, harried mind and my weary heart is this; while I easily cave under the pressure, God is absolutely unhindered by time. After all, He created time. Therefore, He can operate within it, outside of it and in spite of it. If we had a real understanding of that concept, we would embrace and find security in the thought instead of warring against or even rejecting the idea that God’s timing is perfect.
Why we have such issue? Because God’s timing rarely coincides with our perception or plan.
Things occur . . .
IN his time… within the boundaries God has set.
In his TIME… within the frame God has created for our existence.
In HIS time…within the determination of God our Creator and loving Father.
The Bible says, He (God) makes all things beautiful, in his (God’s) time.
Now there is a song I love . . .
Lord please show me every day, as you’re teaching me your way, that you do just what you say, In Your Time. . .
