I haven’t posted to my blog in forever and I don’t seem to post or get on FB or any social media very much anymore or at least not as I used to. To be honest, I just haven’t had the heart for it since probably around the time my mom became sick and then passed away, which is coming up on two years. It’s funny how life can change in an instant and be turned upside down.
Truly there are many other reasons I could list but I know we’ve all had issues going on in our lives over the last couple of years and then with the state of our world today there is just no need to burden everyone with mine. So, I want to post something encouraging.
I read this message from Lisa Bevere today and it spoke to me. Given that I know it may speak to someone else who might be reading this, I thought I’d share. This is written to God’s daughters but it applies to God’s sons as well.
“I’m afraid I will miss God.”
I find this statement to be one of the most common concerns among the most selfless and tender Christians. On the surface, this fear of “missing God” sounds noble, but time has taught me that the enemy pounces on it, then uses it to entrap people. It is his ploy to make everything about our performance rather than our trust in God’s grace. It changes the focus to our ability to follow rather than His ability to lead.
