A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Wednesday 8/25

They are saying “time marches on,” Lord,
– and it definitely does!

The passage of time is inexorable: 

    time tires us

    however nothing tires time…

The march of time is unrelenting, unyielding, 
unstoppable and implacable so, why, Lord, 
why am I taken abruptly
that August is sort of historical past,
the summer time’s winding down
and fall’s across the nook,
the Halloween sweet’s within the shops…

(I suppose if I did not discover it so laborious to imagine
that I am ___* years previous,
I might discover it simpler to just accept the fading days
of this eighth month of 2021…)

Yearly, Lord, and each month,
each week and day by day, 
each hour and each second,
each minute and each second 
brings me that a lot nearer 
to the timeless, 
to my eternally,
to eternity,
to you…

The grace in all of that is easy, Lord:
    you are in each second,
    you are in each hour, week and day,
    you have walked with me 
        by means of all of my years
    and have by no means, not for a nanosecond,
        left my aspect…

So, time marches on, Lord,
    and generally I sustain
    and generally I fall behind
    and generally I simply sit down 
        in the midst of the street
– however even then, time retains its tempo:
    and everlasting tide,
    sweeping me from life’s shores
        out into the infinite ocean
            of the thriller of your love,
    your everlasting love for every of us,
    the thriller of your by no means ending
        timeless love for us…

All time is yours, Lord,
all seasons and ages belong to you:
    in your kindness you allow us to borrow time
    till you name us to the timeless,
    till you name us residence to you,
        – all in your good time…

Stick with us, Lord, as this present day ends
and tomorrow waits its flip:
shield as we lie awake 
and watch over us as we sleep
that awake, we’d preserve watch with you
and asleep, relaxation in your peace…
