This morning I was perusing through old posts, on the latest “share a memory” from Facebook. I read posts from a year ago, four years ago, and five years ago. On several occasions I remember thinking, “Wow, that happened five years ago? Really? That seems like it was just yesterday.” I truly do feel, the older I get, the faster the days slip by. Faster and faster, until the moments turn into a blurry whir of activity.
A lot has happened in five years. Would I have done anything differently had I known how things would turn out? Would I have made different choices? Changed my words? Laughed harder, smiled more?
None of us can know the future.
To most of us, that fact is both exhilarating and sometimes a little scary.
Even though, I can’t see even a few seconds into the future, I know the One who can. He is not chained to time. Calendars and clocks mean little to Him. The great I AM, who was, and is, and is to come……He holds my future in His hands.
And I can rest in that.
