Life Happens

Hey all! Sorry for the delay in another post. These days my life consists of wedding plan decisions (too many!), work, school, music, and family. I have realized that I go through this cyclical pattern of crazy high energy and plummeting down time. And now is one of those down times. How on earth did I stay up ‘til 1AM and then go to History 113 at 7:30 the next morning when I was back at Grace?! Those were the days. So needless to say that I am absolutely useless right now. My head is throbbing and my eyes are closing as I type. [I’ll probably end up like the baby in the picture.] But this week has definitely been a very reflective week.

Just in the last week there has been 4 funerals at the church and every one has made me think deeper and more often about the joys in my life, but also about the joys in the life to come. Paul writes to the churches in Colossians 3:2, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” This is because the only stability in our lives will come from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Health will fail, jobs will be lost, cars will die (or run out of gas), grades will rise and fall, relationships will be torn and mended, loved ones will pass away, but the Word of God and the promises of God will never pass away, they will never fail, they will never run out or be broken. How amazing is that truth?!

So my friends, for this next week, make it a project to deliberately set your mind on eternal things. When something goes wrong, God is the same…and He doesn’t panic.

Together, let us gain a w i d e r perspective this week.
