A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, June 22
2 Peter 3:3-9
verses 8-9: But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
I am glad time moves differently with God than it does with us. Selfishly, I would like as much time here on earth as possible. I know it will be difficult for me to say goodbye to this life I know, and scary to pass to an eternity I have never seen. But God has big plans, bigger than anything I could ever understand. I have to have faith. I must believe God has an eternal plan for me, and for all of us. Maybe I will be here on earth when Jesus comes again. Maybe not. God will hold me, wherever I am.
Holy Father, I trust you to keep your promises. Wherever I am, I am with you. Amen
