What time is it?

I am currently (slowly) making my way through the Psalms. While meditating on Psalm 110, which is said to be the most widely quoted Psalm in the New Testament, my thoughts turned to eternity and how most people desire to either live forever or leave a legacy that will endure for generations.

So I looked up the scripture which talks about this: Ecclesiastes 3:11 NKJV

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

…except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end…

As a soon-to-be empty nester, I am keenly aware of the passage of times and seasons and I can scarcely believe how quickly time has flown by… If truth be told, my mind hasn’t quite caught up with what my calender is telling me…. “What do you mean it’s been 20 years since…???”

I hope I have the time and energy to enjoy whatever the next “time” or season of my life will bring. But I am also possessed of the desire to complete my current season well and send forth my children into their next seasons of life from a position of strength.

So while I haven’t got the vantage of God’s view on eternity, I am trusting Him to lead me to fully play my part in this beautiful tapestry He alone can weave of all our lives and destinies, the outcome of which will be an eternal song of His great, mighty and just reign.

And while the memory of my name and accomplishments on earth will fade over time, the enduring story of His goodness won’t. And in the telling of that story, my story is told too.

  1. That’s one of the associated challenges of living for the present. You seemingly forget the passage of seasons and once we are thrust into them, we begin to relearn the concept of taking life one day at a time with God.

    I think also that we will never understand the concept of time as humans like God , the one who created time but lives outside the dimensionality of time.

    Father help us live through the seasons of life the very way you destined us to in Jesus’ name. Amen
