No Delays

No Delays

For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. (Hebrews 10:37)

Relate: There is this crazy thing about my morning commute. Ten minutes can mean the difference of nearly an hour. When I leave my house in the morning, I have to walk about a mile down my hill to the main street. There I get on a bus which takes me all the way to Uskudar, one of the transportation hubs. In Uskudar I hop on the Marmaray for one stop then switch over to the Kadikoy-Kartal metro and ride it about halfway down the line. I then have another ten minute walk before I have arrived. If I leave my house between 6:20-6:30, my morning commute takes perhaps a little more than an hour and I am arriving about 7:30. If I leave my house between 6:30-6:40 the traffic gets backed up pretty bad on that first bus trip and I have two options: I can walk an additional 2+ miles past the bottleneck then hop on a bus and continue on my way arriving about 8:15-8:30, or I can take my chances riding through the traffic jam. Maybe it might not be too bad and I can still get to work by 8:00-8:15 or so. Maybe it will be bad, though, and it is possible I am not arriving until after nine if I don’t hop back off the bus and start walking.
