A Grace Note: A Thousand Days


Dear Reader, 

My favorite clock stopped working today. I changed the battery and still, the hands refused to move forward. And for a few moments now I have been thinking that time stands still every once and awhile. I worry so much about running out of time, about not having enough of it, and I forget that my Father God is the God of all eternity and with Him my time never disappears. God is eternal, and while I hold so tightly to the ticking away of clocks and deadlines and dreams here on earth, God sees from a Heaven that is free from the ticking and the planners and the stopwatches. With God a thousand years is like a day and a day is like a thousand years. That is scripture. Today I want to be freed by His Grace and stop the worrying about what is to come. He tells us that worrying cannot add a single hour to our lives. But it’s true that such worrying cuts away at our moments of Grace with Jesus. God isn’t bound by our timelines or our blueprints, He is free and He walks in Truth and Grace. Being a part of the body of Christ means we have this same freedom. We are no longer mortal, but immortal. We are free from ticking clocks and days gone by too fast. We have an endless number of days ahead of us, and an endless amount of Grace to go with us. 

In Him, 

A Fellow Grace Wanderer
