clock-1000x1000-decorative-designer-wall-clocks-contemporary-wall-clock-uk-moyuc.comI’ve been pretty forthright about my teen/college years in that I was very far from God.  I’m thankful I made it through those years, alive; more importantly, redeemed and forgiven.  Five or so years ago, I was hurt by a group of good people.  I’m thankful I made it through that as well.  As a result of that season, depression and anxiety had set in with a vengeance. But God had me. But these aren’t the points of this post. What I want to share is what I learned from them: pain and healing are not always on the same schedule. Let me explain.  It took eleven years to screw up my teen/college years, but it’s taken decades to work through the consequences of them.  It had only taken a few months for that group of good people to hurt me, but it took years to heal from it.  Whether we cause the pain to ourselves or the pain is inflicted by others, the days of healing isn’t always proportionate to the days of pain.  Sometimes, the healing and the consequence can take longer.  My point?  Be patient.  Don’t trust the clock, trust the Time Keeper.  The bible says in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  God doesn’t promise a time frame, here. He just promises He’ll work it out.  The ole adage is so true: let go and let God.  I hope this encourages someone today.
