Happy Thursday, friends!
We are officially over the hump of the week, and tomorrow is a huge achievement as we hit 100 episodes – I am excited to announce the winners, so make sure you tune in.
Sometimes life can be blurry. Maybe just maybe, you are in a season in life in which you need clarity. I have been there more times than I like to admit. At least once a month, and I tell myself, “what am I doing for the rest of my life” the answer is clear when I pray. I want to live a life after God’s own heart. Share his love and his teaching with the people around me.
It wasn’t always so clear, but when you look to the Lord, and you fix your eyes on Jesus when you make Him your strength when you seek Him – things become less blurry. The vision you have, the life you are working to live for, it all becomes clearer. To fix your line of vision and fix your eyes on Him.
In order to look to the Lord and his strength, you really need to know who he is:
Genesis 1:1 1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. – He is the creator of the Universe. He threw the stars into orbit. He created all of the galaxies.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – He loves you; He sacrificed His Son for you.
1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declares to you: God is light; in him, there is no darkness at all. – He is GOOD. He is a good father.
1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God because God is love. – He is love. His every fiber is love. He created us. He wants to walk with us, protect us, help us. He fights our battles; he makes the impossible possible.
Whenever things aren’t clear, hold onto these truths. He is the God of love. He is the creator of the universe. He sacrificed His Son for you.
Father God, thank you for giving me the words when I do not have them. Thank you for being our strength. Thank you for blessing our lives. Jesus, help us carve time to spend with you alone every day. Through a worship music session, or just simply through journal time. Maybe even through a hobby where we can create in your honor. You are the one we seek. You are the one we want to grow closer with. We love you. It is in your Holy Name that we pray, Amen!
