Please put on your headphones/earphones. Put volume on high. God be praised!

What is Time?’ is a reflective poem by Pastor Paul Tripp. All credits belong to him.

I looked up the definition of time.
noun
1. the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole.
2. a point of time as measured in hours and minutes past midnight or noon.
Time, we think of numbers. Collecting watches is my weakness. My mom asked me why I have more than 10 when they all do the same job: TELL TIME. Time is anticipating something: when to wake up, clocking out of work, the arrival of a bus, the time of a favorite TV show, the surgery time, and sometimes the remaining moments we might have here on earth.
As a follower of Christ, time is in HIs hands. Time for God is beautiful. He makes all things beautiful in His time. He does not want us to worry about tomorrow. He only knows when to take us out of a season because His timing is perfect. My time here on earth is under His powerful hands. He sent His son Jesus during the time when Herod was king, but because He knew it was the right time for him to be born. He says to not remember the former things, the things of old. And that He will come like a thief in the night. Jesus is coming back. I anticipate His coming back. While I am still here on earth, I will trust His perfect will.

Poem: “What is Time?” by Paul Tripp
We think so much of
moments
days
years
times past
things to come.
We deal with so much
regret of the past
fear of the future
confusion in the present.
For us
time passes quickly
we miss a moment
days drag on.
We
anticipate what’s coming
hold on to what’s gone.
Time
holds us
molds us
controls us.
Thankfully
God knows no time
never expects
never regrets
no looking forward
no glancing back
no surprises
no mysteries
nothing unexpected.
God dwells in an
eternal now.
All that he is
he has forever been
and will forever be.
With him there is no
growth
change
becoming.
He is security’s foundation
time’s sovereign.
In a world where
everything is ever
changing.
He is a rock of
secure
unchanging
eternal hope.
