Life is not about who is right or wrong. It is not about one interpretation over another. Its about Jesus! Plain and simple…its about the highs and lows of walking with our Savior through valleys as well as mountain top experiences. Its about being a servant to those who offend us, and bringing Glory to our King, through our faithfulness to HIM. In the view of eternity, life on earth is a blink of an eye. God made us from nothing..I can not think of one thing that I can make from nothing. Yet we all think we are something.
I don’t want to become a thinker who never does…I want to be both. With one foot in the here and now and one in eternity. I believe that is how it is. So I need to measure my behavior against not only what do people see when they look at me, but also what does all of heaven see when they look at me. My days are numbered, and I don’t know when they will end, but today I tremble at the thought that if I stand before my King now, will I have wasted time here that was planned for service to HIM. I pray for HIM to help me to measure my days, according to HIS great purpose, not a plan of my own. I pray that I will accept every thing that He offers me, and use it to HIS Glory.
Sometimes this life is hard, and the road I am on is sometimes an uphill climb, and I grow weary. Just a small time to focus on Jesus and how very beautiful HE is to me…and all this mountian climbing becomes do-able. Is it worth it? HE is worth it! When all of heaven is looking at me..I want my Father to smile and say “that’s my girl, and just look how she believes me, just look how she is relentless in the climb.” I want everything HE has planned for me, and I don’t want to miss a minute of it, not even to detour for a few of what looks like a good time…not that I am refusing a good time, I just want HIM to pick them for me!
Have a good rest of the week..PEACE…back on sunday..we have wedding to get rolling…and what a blessed time it will be…How great is our God!
