Mid-Week Message - So Much More
Each of us has expectations of what life is supposed to be like. We all have our own ideas of how to perfectly fulfill our responsibilities and relationships. The problem is that life's twists and turns rarely fit in with our perceptions. We have a choice. We can either blame ourselves for not living up to our own views of what we should be, or, we can allow the Lord to guide us through whatever our lives bring us. Life isn't scripted. It doesn't come with a perfect beginning, middle and end the way a good novel does. So we have to learn how to stay close to the One who knows what's coming next and allow Him to show us how to make it through.
We are so much more than our daily activities. Yes, there are duties to perform, jobs to go to, obligations to be fulfilled. All these things are temporary. We are created to live eternity in Heaven with our Father where we will have no tears, no sadness, no sickness. There we shall be as we were created to be and we will know how much we are loved and feel no inadequacy. For now, we need to keep our focus on the eternal rather than the mundane and listen for His encouragement along the way. God bless.
