this is for you. yes, you, reading this. because no matter who you are, I truly believe this is something so important for us to remind ourselves every day. it’s simple:
heaven is our home.
heaven is where we belong. with God is where we belong. and we shouldn’t wait another moment to live for Jesus in the here and the now . . . but we do.
this is not me preaching at you; these are things that I strive to remind myself every single day. my friend, this life is not the one that is eternal. this life is not the one without suffering. that’s all heaven. that’s all God.
so many of us are caught up in my own ambitions, and — keeping it real here — so am I. I’m easily distracted. I’m a professional overthinker haha. but if I were to just set my eyes on Jesus, I would realize that He is worth so much more than a test grade or a college admission. ETERNITY is worth SO much more than a business endeavor or what people think about me. because eternity will last forever, and this life is fleeting.
God never said that giving your all to him is easy. but it is simple. so much simpler than the ever-changing, ever-out-of-reach standards of this world and of other people. if we could just give all ourselves to him, imagine what an impact that would have — and that is what we are called to do! that is the least that we can do for our Savior who died for our sins! we are fishers of men, and if we knew that we could catch fish with every cast of the line, we would cast that line until we dropped! 😂😂 (I mean, am I wrong lol?)
this week, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. no matter who you are or what your situation is, know that you are loved and the trials you might be going through or will go through will only refine you.
