You have something right now that you’ve never had before.
And you’ll never have it again…ever.
It’s this moment – this very moment in time.
How are you living it?
Are you talking your way through it? If so, what are you saying and to whom?
Are you even thinking about it…this gift of time? Are you praying it away? Considering how you’ll feel about it later? Are you using it for others? Who’s glorified by it?
Is worry stealing your moment?
Can you still be thankful for it?
Is your soul sleeping through it hoping to catch the next one?
Are you grumbling about it – another moment passing you by with no easy answers? Does it look like so many others before it with its jagged edges and sting of pain?
The moment owes you nothing.
Your happiness – true, God-breathed happiness is not up to this moment or the consequences surrounding it – it’s completely up to you; your choice, your decision.
The cards will tumble and foundations built on sand will slip out from beneath you. People will change, but God never will.
Jobs/careers will change, but God never will.
Your life, your home may change…
But how will all these things change you?
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
(Hebrews 13:8) NIV
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.
(Isaiah 26:3-4) ESV
