“The Lord will watch over your coming and your going both now and forevermore.” ~Psalm 121:8
At our recent memorial service for fellow Hope4Hollywood member Dr. Temille Porter, we learned about two contrasting views of time. Our world often has us embracing a “meter-mindset” with non-stop reminders, deadlines, and appointments, all with a sense that our time is always “ticking down.” Moreover, we are surrounded by an industry that reinforces the notion that we are always “running out of time”.
The Psalmist reminds us that God’s notion of time is different. He writes of God who watches over our “comings and our goings both now and forevermore.” With this heavenly perspective, we can rest in the hope that our time is not ticking down but rather is ticking up into eternity.
Does your life have an eternal mindset and focus? In what ways?
How will you trust God for your time this week?
