Life is all about the line…sometimes those lines are very fine. It is up to us as Christians to decide how we are going to walk each of those lines through faith and trust in Jesus or by putting our faith in our own decisions.
Oh the things you see these days. Just when you think you’ve seen it all something comes along and surprises you. I guess that is what life is all about. The old adage, “There is nothing new under the sun,” is not true because each dawn brings a new day. A new day with opportunities to share God’s love with each new person you come in contact with in your travels. So look arounf and find the new things which come your way.
I know we all think the Christian walk is meant to be full of warm and fuzzy moments. After all the Bible does say in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” However we all know the truth is the exact opposite. The Christian life at times is a rough road which is difficult to travel and without a faith based on and rooted in Jesus the road can seem unassailable at times.
I just noticed the local ski shop is now open for the season. This must mean the first snow flakes of the season are expected soon. I am sorry to say I am hoping the snow and cold hold off for a little while longer. We all have expectations. The problem comes when we expect something from another person and they let us down. This can lead to hurt feelings. That is why I always put my trust and faith in God because we can expect Him to do exactly what His word says He will do.
I know it is the fall but I try to move past winter to the spring to come and the coming flowers like forsythia. In life I find we do the same thing. We look ahead to much instead of focusing on the here and now/ While it is okay for certain things like financial planning it is not good get caught up in the future. In the end you’ll miss a lot of life.
