Time After Time


Recording positive voice memos into my iPhone for later recall and encouragement, Cindi Lauper’s song Time after Time is unintentionally playing in the background on satellite radio. My recording picks up Time after Time as I am speaking over the music. 

The excitement of what I just recorded in the early morning while sipping my first cup of joe for the day, I listen to the three minute recording four or five times while getting ready for work. The powerful affirmation programs me for a positive and productive day.

Listening one last time to the recording as I walk my dog before leaving for work and carrying my phone in my shirt pocket, Time after Time is playing as I listen to my affirmations.

Hopping into my car, the second the seatbelt clicks and I am turning the key I hear Time after Time once again. For a split-second I thought the seatbelt turned my phone on as it pressed against my chest and front pocket for my phone was still in my shirt and I thought I pocket dialed the recording.

Time after Time is playing much louder than any iPhone I’ve ever heard, as I’m juggling my phone out of my pocket I instantly realize the song is on the radio coming through my car speakers and not my fresh new recording. 

The timing of the song playing on the radio is amazing as I just finished listening Cindi’s song on my phone a moment or two earlier.

Later that evening I’m telling a friend this story over dinner and she believes there is a message for me perhaps from God himself.  

The words say, “If you are lost and you look for me, you will find me Time after Time. If you fall, I will catch you, time after time.”

I know when there are times and I do feel lost, I look for God and He catches me time after time. Each and every time I will find Him when I look, time after time.

Heading home west of the Hudson River the same night, my Christian radio station was static and not coming in. I press another radio station and wouldn’t you know it? Time after Time is boldly playing for the third time for me today. 

Three times in one day! It was a fun day for me and Time after Time is now anchored into my affirmations. I now end each affirmation with the words time after time. I also am thrilled to find God when I seek Him and I am happy to be in good hands because I know He too will find me time after time and He will catch me time after time. 

I love it! Time after Time. He will find me. Time after Time.

    Thank you for sharing a day in your life, Tim. When we really take the time to open our eyes and heart to see and hear what God is saying to us, we gain so much perspective. It’s just so hard to quiet down our world and listen.

    He is faithful, time after time!
