It’s Wednesday – three days after our risen Savior proved His divinity and overcame the power of the grave. Good news – yes, awesome news! Three days into the week and you receive news that a relative has passed into heaven. You may be dealing with the remnants of a recently passed life – a financial problem – a relationship issue – buying a new house – pulling up your roots and starting over. So what happened to that good news from Sunday?
Our hearts can take drastic swings in the light of different emotional junk that’s going on in our heads. We can easily be distracted by troubling events – or quickly give way to excitement or joy. Maybe you could call it ADHD of the spirit. Our minds are so full of stuff, we often become overloaded.
We can’t escape life, simply because we know that our salvation as been won. Days go on, one into the next – often at a fever pitch. There’s seldom time to sit and contemplate what occurred on that cross and in the grave. Life happens. But how can life really go on without that wonderful knowledge?
We worry about the small stuff. We grow anxious over the bigger things. We go nuts when the really big stuff happens. Unless we have a strong foundation – a base which is going to support us through all the garbage of every day.
Jesus is that base. He is our foundation for life – for yucky stuff – for fears and worry – for sadness, anxiety and depression – He is the solid rock which holds us up through all things. With each day, let’s put Him at the forefront.
Dear, Savior, Jesus,
You didn’t think twice about giving it all for us. Help us to remember your amazing grace when we wake and when we sleep. Without you, our future would be hopeless. With you, we can stand on solid ground with the hope of heavenly bliss. Thank you for giving us eternal life and give us the right words to share this great news with others. Amen!
