This is what the high and exalted One says –
He who lives forever, whose name is holy:
“I live in a high and holy place,
But also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit.”
(Isaiah 57:15, NIV)
Transcendent God, You live in eternity
above all time,
untouched by its relentless flow.
You are the Lord of time,
not its servant.
Time means change, and
You are beyond all change.
You are unchanging fullness,
Yet we humans need time, Father.
We need its opportunities to
change and grow.
We are only the seeds of
who we need to be.
And You are like a gardener,
content to work,
content to wait,
content to patiently nurture us
until the time is exactly right and
we are all Your love intended us to be.
You will not rush.
What seems like delays is
only Your mercy,
only Your unflinching determination to give
only Your best to Your children.
Transcendent God, we cannot think Your thoughts.
We cannot trace Your ways,
But we trust Your perfect wisdom and
Your unchanging love.
Help us to work and rest
in Your Spirit,
in Your time,
in Your peace.
You are completely unlimited by
space and time.
You never lack
Help me to look beyond my own limitations and
simply rest in all You are.
