God’s Timeline & Bacon & Egg Cups

2 Peter 3:8 (erv)

But don’t forget this one thing, dear friends: To the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day.

As I sit here writing this, one week stands between me and my 29th birthday. Depending on your own stage of life, that might seem ancient, or it might seem like I still have my whole life ahead of me. From my perspective, it just seems scary.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the last year of my 20’s and how I’d like to spend it: do I try to do as many of the things that society says is unacceptable for 30 years old to do as possible? Do I try to get a jump start on being a full-fledged adult? And with every moment I spend thinking about the time that’s passing by, I become more and more panicked.

After all, life here on earth is short – sometimes incredibly short – and there’s still so much I’d like to accomplish. So many promises remained unfulfilled, so many questions remained unanswered; will there be enough time for me to do everything that’s planned for me?

And then verses like this one bring me back to reality and shine light on the truth: God is in control of my life, He’s working for my good, and His timing is nothing like my own. God has unlimited time and unlimited patience, and having faith in God also means having faith in His promises.

In Psalm 27:13, David says, “But I really believe that I will see the Lord’s goodness before I die” (ERV). He knows there are promises that are still unfulfilled, but his faith in the Lord and His timing remains unwavering. As we move through this lifetime, one of our goals should be to practice the same type of unfailing faith.

Everywhere we look, we can see time passing by and slipping away. Family members grow old and pass away. We start to feel tired doing things we could once do effortlessly. The media brings our attention to our aging skin and graying hair. The idea of “living your best life” is everywhere. We’re being told to look at the now as if it’s all we have. But as Christians, we know that we have far more than just the now.

We know that God is using this time to prepare us for eternity, and in eternity, we have… eternity. I’m the first one to admit how easy it is to get wrapped up in my own human timeline, and that’s why it’s so important to constantly bring the focus back to God and His word. We are blessed with a God who not only fulfills His promises to us here on earth, but also in the future, when time will mean nothing to all of us. That truth is easy to forget, but so important to remember as we move through this life at what often feels like a million miles per hour.

What are some of your fears and worries regarding time and accomplishment? What are some of the steps you can take to start turning those things over to God?

Pray

For the desire to see life using God’s timeline instead of your own.

Tips & Tools

You don’t need to pre-cook the bacon before lining the tin with it – it will cook right alongside the eggs. And FYI, It’s totally normal for the eggs to seep out from under your bacon border.
