I was out shopping for a new calendar & daily planner the other day, knowing I will be needing one for the new year ahead. These are great to plan schedules far into the future. One thing I noticed is that they all come with several dates pre-printed, national holidays & days of remembrance, whether you choose to observe or not, they are listed and come to pass with our without our consent. These days are appointed for us. Where as the other dates on the calendar are free to be planned.
In life, there are two such dates noted on OUR LIFE CALENDAR; that of which when we are born and that of which when we die and the two go hand in hand, both are inevitable. God is the appointment setter.
The remainder of our life calendar is up to us to decide, plan & choose. A high school graduation date or our drop out date is decided by a person's actions. A marriage date or a divorce date, also,... humanly inspired! Our life planner is primarily filled with events & circumstances that are the result of our own thinking, actions & choices.
There is one date that can be carried over for eternity, for every year going forward. The day that you turn your entire life over to the Lord, appointed and anointed. This date, like our birth & death date fall under the dominion of Gods divine timing. He can be trusted with every plan we have for our life, after all He has a plan for it too, getting in synch with His plan is the purpose of all those empty square days!
[He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth. Ephesians 1: 10
For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. Ephesians 2: 10
And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel). Mark 1: 15

Behold, your house is forsaken (abandoned, left to you destitute of God's help)! And I tell you, you will not see Me again until the time comes when you shall say, Blessed (to be celebrated with praises) is He Who comes in the name of the Lord! Luke 13: 35
He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority and personal power. Acts 1: 7
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it]. Hebrews 4: 16
