God is not nearly as concerned about dates as we are.
Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3, NIV)
Prayer- Lord help us not cling to memories, but instead yearn for you with all our hearts. Amen.
