Time After Time

pocket watch IMG_0156

My son proudly showed me the pocket watch his mother-in-law gave him for Christmas. It’s a family heirloom that is nearly a hundred years old. The biggest surprise to him was that after he wound it, it still works. The parts that have seen the passing of time are so fine and yet continue to mark the moments, time after time.

I don’t know how many seconds have passed in all that time, but I know that God is worthy of praise for every one of them. No matter the times, no matter the circumstances, he makes our future glisten with hope – time after time.

I will praise the Lord at all times.
I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord;
let all who are helpless take heart.

Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness;
let us exalt his name together!

I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me.
He freed me from all my fears.

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy;
no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
(Psalm 34:1-5)

May this New Year glisten with hope.

May you be radiant with joy

time after time.
