What To Do About Time - Part 1

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

As human beings, it seems we are always waiting for something. Time is seldom in sync with us. When we are young we often want time to hurry up. We are eager to grow up, eager for the next birthday to arrive, can't wait for school to be over and summer to begin. We are always looking forward to the next milestone or anticipated event and wishing it would get here sooner. As a young person, we may feel that time is too slow. But as we age things seem to go the opposite direction.

At some point, without us really knowing when it happened, time has gotten ahead of us and we would like for it to slow down. Thoughts pass through our minds that the children are maturing too quickly, the bills are due too soon and another year has been added to our already advancing age. What used to be lagging way behind now has not only caught up with us but passed us with nearly lightning speed. It seems we are always looking at the tail end of time, hoping to grab a hold of it so we can catch up a little or at least keep it from moving on so quickly. It appears that time has never been our friend...always out of step by being either too fast or too slow.
