Colossians 3:1-4 “ So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.”
We all have had moments in our faith walk where we can feel the love of Jesus so closely at times. He blesses us with his love and our faith increases. Have you been challenged to grow in faith soon after? Or to show love in a situation where it seems impossible to break through to someone who does not love you back?
These challenges in life are meant to help us grow. For fruit to take shape in our lives. I have gone through these trials time and time again but I can honestly say I’m getting stronger. My faith is increasing and I’m grateful to God for these circumstances. I have learned to keep my eyes on Jesus and not be distracted as much by what is happening around me. If I focus on the good in my life it can out weigh the bad that is around me. Keep praying and asking Jesus to help you to get past the trials in your life, he will lighten the load and bring you back the peace that could easily be lost.
I thank you for today. I thank you for your love for us and our families. I pray for each one of us who are suffering and hurt to turn to you in our pain. I pray we keep our eyes on you and not be distracted by what is around us. Amen.
