A thousand years in a day
Daughter of a Thousand Years by Amalia CarosellaGreenland, AD 1000
More than her fiery hair marks Freydís as the daughter of Erik the Red; her hot temper and fierce pride are as formidable as her Viking father’s. And so, too, is her devotion to the great god Thor, which puts her at odds with those in power—including her own brother, the zealous Leif Eriksson. Determined to forge her own path, she defies her family’s fury and clings to her dream of sailing away to live on her own terms, with or without the support of her husband.

Like her Icelandic ancestors, history professor Emma Moretti is a passionate defender of Norse mythology. But in a small town steeped in traditional values, her cultural beliefs could jeopardize both her academic career and her congressman father’s reelection. Torn between public expectation and personal identity, family and faith, she must choose which to honor and which to abandon.
In a dramatic, sweeping dual narrative that spans a millennium, two women struggle against communities determined to silence them, but neither Freydís nor Emma intends to give up without a fight.
What does 2 Peter mean? The context of this verse is the following. The reason they say that is because they do not want to obey God, but follow their own sinful desires. We have a short life, and time is important to us. God is eternal. For Him, time does not exist.
God is neither slow nor fast in accordance to humanity
One Day is Like a Thousand Years?
God created these lights for humanity to divide the day from the night, and for days and years. Gen And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years. God does not need the lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and for days and years. Rev And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. See God is light and the sun, moon and the stars have no light on their own.
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Romans For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. Psalm For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. New International Version But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. New Living Translation But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. English Standard Version But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Berean Study Bible Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
