Many times, life is measured by how often we let ourselves live it.
So many people go day by day in this world living for things that are only as far as tomorrow will get them, because that’s what’s exciting.
While that’s not all bad, God’s been teaching me lately that as I live day by day, I shouldn’t just be looking at what tomorrow will bring, but on what eternity has set for me.
“We are not shaken, we are not moved, we wait upon You, Lord. Mighty deliverer, our Triumph and Truth, we wait upon You, Lord. As SURELY as the sun will rise, You’ll come to us. Certain as the dawn appears. You’ll come. Let Your glory fall as you respond to us. Spirit reign, flood into our thirsty heart again. You’ll come, You’ll come.” – You’ll Come; Hillsong
It is literally flooding over here in Manila, but let’s not let that hinder the Lord from flooding us with His presence. He’s cooking up something amazing, guys. I know this because all things work together for good for those who trust in Him and are called according to His purpose.
So, let’s not give up hope here. No matter what our situation, we are in God’s hands, and that is honestly the safest place we can ever be.
Praying for all of you. <3
