So we need to do this day with God ~ You and I. Yeah, even when it’s a tough one. So even when it seems difficult to move forward because of so much stuff behind and before that hinders the journey, remember Paul’s words in Philippians 3: 13, ” Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.…”
Oh we aren’t there yet, but we have a heavenly goal through this earthly journey of hard places and as Christ ones we press on through the hard and the difficult towards the mark and the prize of our heavenly home and eternity with our heavenly Father, the creator and sustainer of this world and us. He’s our reason for getting through this day and the next and the next and the next. So when you feel anxious, afraid, lost, let down, remorseful, hopeless, and just plain overwhelmed, you can know that you know, that God has you and your stuff in the palm of His nail scarred hands and His faithfulness won’t let you go not even for a second. If He’s brought you to it, He’ll bring you through it. Every sweet minute of your life, every difficult decision, Every bump in the road, and every twist in the turn ~ He has ~ and he holds close and He graces with His sweet love, so compassionate, so unconditional and so merciful! Our part is to release the weight of the stuff into His tender care and move ahead freely in the name of Jesus, the winner and the victorious One
So doing the day with God? Yeah, let’s do it!
