There are times when it may seem as though time just drags on and on and that nothing will ever change. These are usually found in the very young people that are eagerly a waiting for something that they are sure will make them happy. This might be an event such as waiting on Christmas to get here or perhaps the next birthday will somehow be the magical mile stone. What ever the anticipated date is, in the mind of the person who is doing the anticipating, time seems to be some sort of barrier to them having what they want.
Just shortly after this time period in our lives we somehow find that we have stepped into a phase of existence that is moving so fast that we are exhausted. No more than our heads hit the pillow at night it seems like the alarm is blaring in our ears to get up. It sometimes seems like no matter how much you hurry you are always late! Once more time is against you but this time instead of being in front of you as a block it is behind you relentlessly pushing you forward! I don't even remember jumping or climbing or even recognizing that I had changed positions with it! Did you? Now that you are here though you can read all kinds of books and go to all kinds of seminars on time management or perhaps anger management, trying to find some sort of answers to what and why and how in the heck can I change?
One thing is certain, though we don't really know what the future holds. I believe this is for our own protection. Do you really want to know ahead of time when some sort of tragedy is going to turn your life upside down, I don't. My plate is full enough right now with out actually knowing ahead of time, of the inevitable events of life that lie ahead.
Though none of us are guaranteed another breath here on this earth there are still some things that are certain and those are the promises that God himself spoke to Apostle Paul to pass on to those who believe Jesus lived and died and lives again . These promises are found in the Pauline epistles and there is “comfort” for the hurting found there, there is “certainty for life” found there, there is “Hope” found there and the greatest “Love” is found there and the “Peace” that surpasses all understanding is found there for you directly from God! That is what is for certain!
When you believe this with no works of yourself this is the priceless Grace God has freely given to you, simply by believing that Jesus his son died for you and he lives now and he will return!!
Hope is alive!
