Life is short and full of mystery. Unfortunately it is also full of pain, and distraction.
All I can think of lately is how I want to go deeper. How do we make the most of the time we have? There’s so many unanswered questions. They don’t make me distrust my heavenly Father. Instead they bring me to the never-ending crossroads of life, where we can either accept what is around us or change it.
Even having noble desires like changing the world can get in the way. And so for this morning, I am going to focus on asking the Holy Spirit to change me. Take me deeper! Settling for that which keeps my spirit eyes horizontal is not my goal.
So how do I go deeper, or higher? How do I rise above my circumstances, what ever they may be and see a spirit’s eye view? How do I live in the moment with the power of Christ surging through my veins, in order that each moment that follows will reveal more of His glory?
I believe in God and that He sent His one and only Son to die for me, and I will fight every distraction not to forget it. I will embrace every joy and sorrow because He asks me to.
The Bible is truth and records history in order to help us not repeat it. God’s Word can take us deeper, and higher and keep our eyes fixed on Him.
It’s very simple, but because He asks us to come to Him, that He may give us rest – we run away all the more and try everything else, just in case we might miss out on something…sound familiar?
Do you want to understand the mystery of life? Lift your eyes towards heaven and dig deep into His truth. Get to know Jesus more. Believe, and put on your boxing gloves. Believing is not for cowards. Then the fight really starts. Every distraction you could possibly think of will try to pull you away – but don’t give in.
Believe and go deeper.
