Good Monday morning.
It is good, right?
I woke up.
The sun will rise soon.
I’m still a child of God.
No matter what happens around me, or to me, my identity in Christ remains the same.
I have a Savior, a Redeemer.
The Holy Spirit abiding in me brings me joy and peace.
Do I still worry?
I would be lying if I said no.
I am a work in progress.
I can only see things with my human eye, hear with my human ears, and think with my human mind.
I can’t see the big picture, and sometimes the bits and pieces that I can see don’t make any sense.
That can be a little scary.
I am not invincible.
I don’t hold the power of life and death.
I know the One who does.
The Giver of Life.
The Creator of all things.
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:12-13.
From Heaven’s side, my life is a beautiful tapestry.
From here below, all I see are the threads, and they don’t make a pretty picture. In fact, they are a jumbled mess.
Today the desire of my heart is to trust God in all things.
To remember that this life is not all there is.
To be of courage, and to encourage others.
Above all, to love.
