5 Minute Friday

[Five Minute Friday]: Here

5 Minute Friday[Today I’m joining the wonderful LisaJo of thegypsymama and a beautiful community of bloggers for the 5 minute Friday writing prompt. Today the word is HERE.]

“Set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits… Let heaven fill your thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on earth.” Col. 3:1-2 (NLT)

I’m doing it again.

I’m doing it again.

No matter how hard I try to stay focused on God and His plan for my life, I always end up falling off track. I begin to look at the state of my life and worry. I don’t have job yet (and wait… here comes the comparison..and so, and so does!). I don’t know enough people in San Francisco (even though I’ve only been here for about 3 weeks and have been consumed with bar study). My house is still in a state of boxes from moving.

I’m doing it again. I’m looking at my life through the lens of my earthly, momentary reality and not through the realities of heaven.

I’m forgetting that here, this brief moment, is only a blink of Christ’s eye and a blip on the page of His plan for my life. I must trust with all my heart in the greatness of the Lord who only has my best interest in mind.

The “right” job will come. The house will be fully unpacked, organized, and clean. All in God’s perfect time. I’m must continue to have faith in the reality that I can’t see with my eyes but feel with my heart.

Here. Today. I begin anew my faith in Christ and the heaven where he sits.

Dear Lord, Please help me to put my faith in You and in your plan. Lord, guide me in focusing on heaven instead of the here and now. Your view is so much better than mine. Thank you for listening Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

wishing you God’s hope, peace, and joy,

    I love this and thinking the same things, “Here I am again, here I do this again,” but so thankful He is patient with me. Thank you for sharing (and I love your layout!). 🙂
