I walked into an old clocksmith store, and I could hear the tick-tock movements of the pendulums. The walls were dark and aging plaster cracks appeared everywhere. The timber moaned that supported the weathered wood floor. Time never stops as the pendulum swings.
A frail elderly man heard me enter, and he scurried out from behind a lint-covered curtain. I wanted to run as my pores turned clammy. It was time to turn the thoughts of the past behind me. We started a dialog. Time grabbed my hands, and I was held in the bondage of yesterday’s movement.
Life is deeply portrayed by the movement of the inner workings of a clock. The gears continue to spin while God watches everything. So patiently, we wait for His perfect timing.
The tarnished faces of the clocks stared at each other. Their sounds mesmerized me. Feeling very minute, the store surrounded my every thought. I came to exchange a gift, but perhaps I’ll leave well enough alone.
And so life around me aggressively consumed my soul. The sounds of the pendulums resembled the printing presses of time. The clocks stamped out the worn-out news. Bewildered, I was frozen in time. I stood still on the uneven floor while… the pendulum swings.
Metaphorically, God is situated similarly within our souls. Just as the ticking clocks in the old store, we are standing face to face with our Maker. Even amidst His peace, our spirit is out of sync. Everyone has a choice and burying our heads will not stop time. All God’s children have an inborn clock, and soon we must realize the pendulum still swings.
Radical events surround my thoughts as the old floors are creaking where we walk today. Riot gear may protect our skin, but nothing protects our spirit. They leave us to wonder while… the pendulum still swings.
Our Lord, the old clock man Himself, determines our destiny with His watchful eyes. Hearts and minds break as we read and listen to the media’s deceitful lies, which do little to comfort our soul. It’s only God who will make the sun to rise again. The pendulum will still swing… bringing a new life.
