Preparing Yourself for God's perfect timing
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.

Imperfect and flawed creatures, subjected to this world that is so bound by time, we can struggle with it even as we try so hard to master it as it seems to slip through our grasps. We lose track of it, we find that it is never enough and, often, we can find that our sense of it is off, especially when the unexpected happens to knock us even a little off kilter. As the old cliché reminds us, time can be the enemy. As Nathaniel Hawthorne would reflect in The Marble Faun, “Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.” Yet there is One to whom time isn’t a mys
