How we perceive the passage of time depends upon the circumstances. If we engage in routine activities for three weeks, we may not even notice the pace of time; however, the one who had to wait three weeks for the results of a medical lab test felt the weight of each successive day. When the news finally came, the physician made a statement that erased anxiety: "Rest assured that the biopsy report returned benign." These words of assurance produced joy and energy. "Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings" (Hebrews 10:22a).
