has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
This life on earth can be a bundle of differing emotions. There are days when the unexpected happens, and we struggle to keep our minds focused on positive, godly choices. There are then other days when we feel God is overwhelming us with His spiritual power and wisdom beyond measure and is granting us His joy through exciting events. These more easily enable us to move forward with hope and determination.
Yet no matter the ups and downs, it is beautiful to think that we are not only on a journey leading to the here and now, but also on a road allowing us to view eternal life from His perspective every day. And it is because we know Him and are in Him. Keeping Christ’s work for our salvation at the forefront of our plans and overlooking the feelings that can confuse and confound us, we trust His Spirit to grant us the ability to move forward. In Him we press on in our walk of faith, no matter those changes. The end result is a prize worth winning and a God-given calling that is received only in and through Him.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, I pray that every step I take will remind me that because of You, I walk in eternal life today. I will, through faith, see Your joy and beauty as the end result. Amen.
