Are we making the efforts that God expects from serious believers? Are we doing the things that He thinks are important?
When things fall apart, what are we left with? What is real when the nonessentials are stripped away?
Life is a story. We are writing part of our story today!
We have trouble, and we can get distracted by trouble. It can pull our attention away from things that are more important. I’d like to think more about the important things.
Jesus is coming for us, whether it is in a whirlwind of fire, or a car wreck, or old age, or whatever… we need to be prepared for that, and that is the most important thing.
Our story isn’t over yet! We don’t have to just wish the past was different, we can consider how our story is being written now and when we look back at it in the future what will our story be about today and in the coming weeks and months.
Let’s let Jesus help write our stories.
