Absorbing God’s Word
“So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18
Applying God’s Word
My family was supposed to be on a week’s vacation together over Easter break. In May, we were going to attend multiple events with our children and grandchildren, including several birthdays, a senior graduation and a confirmation. Today, as I think about it, would have been the Golden Wedding Anniversary (50) for my late wife Joanne and I.
Everything I’ve listed are things I had fixed my eyes on, without giving much thought to the things I couldn’t see or plan on. I hadn’t planned on Joanne’s death six years ago nor did I give much thought to being married again. I didn’t know that Covid19 would swoop down and crush our family plans or the plans of folks all around the world.
It’s a reminder to all of us that what is seen is temporary while what is unseen is eternal.
Accounting of God’s Word
When my plans are crushed, do I throw in the towel or trust that God’s plan is being fulfilled?
