Looking forward to … deadlines?

Threats. For years, that’s how deadlines felt to me. They hung over the horizons of my work, small clouds of anxiety or larger ones of dread. Hearing others talk about due dates, I knew I wasn’t the only one who felt this way.

Somewhere along my road of spiritual growth, though, I came to welcome the idea of a finish time. Learning about God’s all-knowing oversight of His creation and feeling His all-embracing love have freed my thought about work. They’ve yielded a quiet assurance that a deadline can be seen and felt as a promise. A promise that whatever is assigned will be done by then.
