2 Peter 3:8-9

Don’t let it escape your notice, dear friends, that with the Lord a single day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a single day. The Lord is not slow to keep his promise, as some think of slowness, but he is patient toward you, not wanting anyone to perish but all to change their hearts and live.

Our Lord is giving us time to change as much time as we need, whether it is a day or a thousand years. it doesn’t matter to him. Our Lord is wonderfully patient with us; he waits until we change while we are alive. As we change our hearts, we grow closer to our Lord.  We change our behaviors to align ourselves with God’s will for us in order to live more meaningful Godlike lives.

Dear Lord, Father and Mother of Us All, Help us to remember how great your love is for us and how patient you are with us, as we grow closer to you in thoughts and deeds.  Amen
