While reading my library book about the meaning of time, I paused. Time stands still some days as I rest under the covers of my blanket. Then I look at my clock. Time passes and stands still for no one.
Some elements in my daily life are timeless—for example, God’s love. It is timeless, eternal, and always kind. After some time with my library book, I turned to the Bible and read this verse: And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in Him.
And God’s Word is not wrong. God’s love appears from undercover—gentle, permeating, strong, and mysterious. His love can come in signs, but we must accept them. Some signs include love from our families, friends, and pets. God’s love has given me treasured memories through a stranger’s kind words or smile or by someone sharing the time of day.
Such love can appear at any time, like God’s love. In our prayers, we can seek God’s guidance for good decisions to do the right thing. As a Christian, praying to live in God’s love teaches us never to stress. We can carry God’s love with us and stay upbeat. Now, back to my book as I listen to the rain and rest in God’s timeless love.
How can you do a better job of uncovering God’s love daily?
