Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:15
Time marches on determined and swift.
Where is it going this fleeting gift?
This present unseen that never lasts
Tailing the future, leading the past
Like vanishing smoke or morning mist
Or the ending sigh of viper’s hiss.
The minutes and hours you cannot band
Like holding a waterfall in hand
An impossible task, can’t be done.
And so this time continues to run.
I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:22
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Cor 6:2
Jesus, as time slips through our hands like a waterfall…like a mist…let it be a reminder to us at all times that our sins have been swept away in the same way…like a cloud….like the morning mist that disappears quickly. You did it, Jesus, on your cross. You became sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God! We can fly like an eagle in the freedom of grace. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Amen.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
