For as long as I can remember I’ve always been fascinated and intrigued by the concept of time….

  • How old our universe is.
  • How we humans are new comers to our planet.
  • How short and precious our life-span is on earth.
  • Our connection and interdependence with everything.
  • God and time.
  • The mystery of it all.

  Reading psalm 90 recently set me thinking of all the references there are in the Bible about life and time…..

O God, you have been our shelter from one generation to the next.

Before the mountains were formed or the earth or the world brought forth,

From everlasting to everlasting you are God.

A few more examples…..

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven….

                                                                                 Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like a day.

                                                                                                Peter 3 :8-9

Now is the time of God’s favour.

                                                             2 Cor. 6:2

He has made everything beautiful in its own time.


For I know the plans I have for you, plans to give you hope and a future.


  Lots of food for thought and reflection.

P.S. from Dr. Seuss………

How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon.

So let us live life to the full as best we can in our time.
