We can never escape darkness…all we can do is just keep our focus on the light…and no matter how dark we feel or how dark our circumstances appear, the light of Jesus is always more powerful to grab us.
There are manuals for all of our devices appliances and vehicles… and we read them to know the in’s and out’s of how to operate them, to ensure we are using them correctly.
But we fail to open the most important manual for how we are supposed to live our physical life… which also provides direction for what we must do to get into our eternal home of choice.
So instead of being overwhelmed with the thickness of the book, or putting our trust in a religion, the best thing we can do for our own life, is to just open it and read it… even if all that we read , is that what is written in red.
When we get caught up in thinking our job is our life, we slowly begin to cut the chords that connect us to God, and we begin to think we are in control… even though internally, we slowly begin to unravel… to which we will lose control of everything, unless we reconnect.
In our moments of wanting and longing for more, we must quickly shift our thoughts to gratitude…for even in our smallest of blessings, we can see Gods hand in our life. But in our longing, we can only see the distraction, without seeing the evil, that is trying to pull us away from his hand.
