In the fullness of time

This evening's vespers, prayed at nearby St. James parish, included the following lines from Ephesians 1:

God has given us the widsom
To understand fully the mystery
The plan he was pleased
To decree in Christ

A plan to be carried out
In Christ, in the fullness of time,
To bring all things into one in him,
In the heavens and on earth.
Sometimes, it seems as though my efforts to share Christ in the workplace are a complete mystery. I may think, "How do they all fit together? When will they bear fruit? Are they really doing any good at all?"

But I am encouraged to think that these efforts will reach their completeness in Christ. Even the efforts that seem to be incomplete now will be carried out by Him "in the fullness of time."
