“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness, how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” Dr. Seuss

The words above, written by Dr. Seuss, are so true for all of life. Days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, months turn to years, and years turn to decades.  

We often wonder where did the time go and we question what have we really accomplished. This is true in my life and perhaps true in your life as well.

This month many students across the nation are participating in the pomp and circumstance of graduation ceremonies. As is tradition on graduation evening in the school I serve, graduates march through a tunnel, formed by two lines of their teachers, the educators that have poured into their lives over their school years, receiving hugs and affirmation of a job well done.

I took my seat after participating in the emotional greeting in the tunnel of my once 5th-grade students

How true for the graduates and how true for all of us. At the beginning and the end of all the striving, all the preparing, all the accolades, all the good days and the bad days, is a simple, but yet profound truth –Trust God.

The Creator of the universe extends a beautiful invitation to walk in step with Him, to be in a covenant relationship formed out of His perfect love.

So where does the time go? And what am I really accomplishing in these days numbered on a calendar, marked by school or career or family?

Our days, our weeks, our months, our years, yes our life marches on toward eternity, where time has no measure and our deeds in this life find their rightful place at the feet of Jesus.

For Seniors graduating and for every person in every season of life, trusting God is always the wise choice.

He is the faithful God, willing and ready to lead, to provide, to give hope, to heal, to love, to forgive, to redeem, and to restore.

He says come, He says trust me, and today I say yes! How about you?

“But I trust in you, O Lord; ‘You are my God’.  My times are in your hands;”

Psalm 31:14-15 (ESV)
