18 Time is of the Essence mp3 Instrumental Version
  Loeillet oboe concerto Adagio
Time is of the essence,
My children,

and you will not want
to waste a single moment of it.




















But when you really
do not have any to spare,
continue to feed on the wing,

and hasten slowly
lest rash rapid rushing
leads headlong to a crash

and then, when times of special strain are past,
take care to tend your soul again.



Since the onslaught has been so intense,
So too is your need to rest
and immerse yourself in Me.


The day will come when I measure grace back to you
in long precious stretches of uninterrupted time









I am not like the planners of this world
who easily forget the past and misread the future.
With Me, the past, present and future flow
as one continual river,
so that what I do today
impacts on some more distant event downstream,
even as the things that come your way today
have their roots entwined in the far distant past.


Time is of the essence,
but I am calling you
now to sit and be.

Let Me be the chronometer
that keeps the time
and the metronome
that strikes the balance
in your days.
