don't try so hard...all is grace

looking in my rearview mirror the sun rising brightly at 7:30 a.m. on this March 2013 morning
looking through my windshield at 7:30 a.m. the full moon still visible on this March 2013 morning

something about a moment in time...
seeing the sun and moon visible at the same second...
new day dawning…
yesterday still able to be seen…
in ways we can’t understand…
all is now…
all is grace…
the precious present...
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever"—Hebrews 13:8

expressed so well in Amy Grant's new song, Don't Try So Hard...

God is sovereign, He sees the past, the present, and the future all-at-once..
He is the panpharmacon, the salve that soothes every wound..
Lord Jesus, help me to live this moment in the light of eternity...
believing You when You say..."don't try so hard"
don't try so hard 
God gives you grace and you can't earn it 
don't think that you're not worth it 
because you are 
He gave you His love and He's not leaving 
gave you His Son so you'd believe it 
you're lovely even with your scars 
don't try so hard

"These things I plan won't happen right away. 
Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. 
If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. 
Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!"--Habakkuk 2:3 TLB

How about you? What are your moments in time?
