Through a Child's Eyes

Time – stands still when the kids are waiting for the clock at school,

Time flies when they’re on a playdate with a good friend…

A child has no comprehension of time when I say “bed in 15 minutes”…

Time is endless when they’re waiting for their next BIG birthday because they’re always trying to grow up way too fast!

Time for adults can be just the opposite –not always, but  occasionally a playdate can run a little long; School flies by (didn’t I just drop them off???); we see bed time as a reward for a hard day’s work; and I feel like I JUST had a birthday (it can’t be time for another one!)

One thing I know for sure…God’s time is not like ours!

This is especially true when you’re waiting on Him for an answer to prayer, a promise to be fulfilled, or a season to end so the next one can come.

If only, like a little child waiting to unwrap presents at Christmas, I anxiously and hopefully awaited God’s answer to my prayers; I patiently anticipated His promises to be fulfilled; and I graciously gave thanks in the present season until it ushered in the next one.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time.”
