You Were Never Meant to Carry This – Every Moment
Greetings Dear Reader,
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me,
The span of our lives is made up of moments. Each day we encounter a thousand moments and over the years those moments become our lives. The choices in the moments become who we are. A life is made up of the cumulative results and consequences of moments.
We view most of our life through the past and the crisis or joy of the moment. We see the distresses and consequences of the moment as they occur but rarely remember to live in the moment.
No matter the circumstances those moments are what shape us. They shape us through our choices, attitudes, and responses. They shape us relative to the efforts of the Father to bring us back to good.
We often, I think forget that God’s plan includes the response to every choice each of us will make. It takes in to account every nuance of thought and action. The King of the Sunset lies waiting for the dawn when his counter moves to our moves bring all things back to the way he intended them to be.
It is my place to find him in every moment so that I am no surprised in the moment when I find myself with him. It is in him that we live and move and have our being. It seems only logical to recognize that each moment is an opportunity to find Christ and follow. In a life we have 36.792,000 such moments. He stands in each one waiting to help bring me closer to who I am meant to be.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
