Time For Grace
New Year 2014 is another reminder that our life is punctuated by the passage of time. We go from one time event to another. The clock ticks on relentlessly. As the song by John Rowles goes: “so much to do, if I only had time”.
In a popular British science fiction series there is the idea that you could travel back to when time first began. How the world was at the beginning has fired the imagination of many a scientist and science fiction writer. Did something exist before time began? Is that even possible? The Bible provides an answer: God. It says that God favoured us “before the beginning of time” (2 Timothy 1:9 NIV UK). In the beginning was God, and he is for us. Did you get that? Before the universe began, before the existence of the laws of physics, before the dimensions of time and space came into being, there is God’s gracious love for us.
You might have some time on your hands this summer – more time to enjoy God’s love. Take time to appreciate and enjoy God’s love as we go into 2014.

If I only had time Only time
So much to do If I only had time, if I only had time Dreams to pursue If I only had time they'd be mine
Time like the wind Those are hurrying by and the hours just fly Where to begin There are mountains I'd climb, if I'd time
