“But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day” (2 Peter 3:8).

What is time?  Is not time something the Lord has also created?  He is not just in our time, but in all time.  He is the creator of time.  In fact, He has, so to speak, all the time in the world to deal with you alone.  We fret over time, but the older you are, the more you know how fast it goes.  Look to the One who created all things and rest in the arms of His grace and mercy.  He will do as He has promised, for He cannot lie .

Lord, I try to figure things out and I fail.  You have created me to be who I will become.  Continue to lead me on the path of salvation so that I may continue to grow into the likeness of Christ, my Savior.  Let me not worry about progress, time, or whether I am meeting some deadline.  Instead, help me to look to You always, be at peace and be guided by the word You have given me.

Lord Jesus, You walked this earth to provide what is necessary for the sake of all who believe in order that the way of everlasting life would be shown.  Lead me according to Your goodness to know that in You is all hope and an eternal future.  Guide me in the way You have established so that I do not worry about time, but act as one who is eternal because of Your grace and mercy.  Lift me up in Your arms to continue becoming what You are making of me.  Amen.
