This was only the second “Something to Think About” ever published. Notice that there is no header image or Date; I was evolving. Also ponder that you are reading this in 2021 even though it was written two years in the past. It’s all about 42’s TIME!
Something to Think about #2
(Originally Published 2019.06.07)
Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You return man to dust and say, “Return, O children of Adam!” For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. Psalm 90:2-4
Today’s scripture has me thinking about time.
When most of us think about time, we think on a horizontal, yet what we are experiencing is on the vertical. Past events seem real, and future occurrences also seem real, yet for us, the only thing that is truly real is the moment in time that we are presently experiencing.
Let me illustrate: I am experiencing this reflection as a moment, which happened at 5:54 am on 2019.06.07. (It took me a few minutes to write it, which is why it posted at about 6:29 am.) When you read it, you are experiencing it in your moment, which could be hours or even days after my pondering moment passed. My moment no longer exists, but yours is happening while you read and ponder this. Granted, the evidence of my moment is this blog, but my moment is gone.
What I am trying to say is that our experiences get caught in a specific moment. We can only truly see what is there in front of us as we sense the smells, sights, sounds, etc. We can’t stop time, nor can we manipulate time. We simply exist in and with time.
God, on the other hand, created time. He dwells outside of time because he wasn’t created in time. He is in this moment that I had, and he is in the moment you are having.
So to sum it up, God created you, me, and time. Your moment and my moment are both connected through him. Therefore, this is God’s time.
I guess that makes him Father Time!
