“A day to me is as a thousand years, and a thousand years, is as one day. You want me to move according to your timetable, but that is not the way I navigate time. I am from the place of always and forever because I have always existed. Forever is difficult for you to fathom because your eternity has not yet come.
Your life is but a breath, you are here for a very short time. Yet, your life is precious to me and I want to walk with you through it. I desire fellowship with you, to give your life meaning and purpose while you’re here.
As you choose to hone in on me, the light of my love encompasses you. It enables you to see past your circumstances and into the truths I desire to teach you. Sometimes you make your life harder than it needs to be by trying to handle everything on your own. You rush ahead to get through it quickly rather than allowing everything to happen in my time.
Though challenges will come, I will always provide for you and help you to find your way. Accept where I have you right now, trust me, and believe that all will work out for good because you love me. When you release your cares into my control, even when facing difficult battles, you will know my peace as you abide in me.
Because I am faithful to my word, you can live joyfully. I will not fail you no matter what is happening in your world, no matter what you see with your eyes, and no matter how long it takes. I always show up on time.”
