We are all going to experience pain in this life and that is a non-negotiable that comes with living in a fallen world. But we can choose hope, we can choose life, and we can find healing, even when nothing makes sense.
The problem is, deep down inside, we know who we really are and so does God. We can’t outrun that reality, no matter how awesome we present ourselves to the rest of the world.
One day, whether tomorrow or 100 years from now, you and I will die. How are we choosing to live now with that reality in mind?
Throughout the Scriptures we see examples of God using humanity in unique and individual ways, all with the intention of bringing unity, healing, and redemption to creation.
Most of our lives we are striving for meaning, for purpose, for some semblance of our soul’s longing for satisfaction. We attain degrees, we study at studios, we work our lives away climbing a ladder of success that leads us to a temporal place of success. And all the while we are left wondering if we are ever going to reach the pinnacle of achievement that consistently escapes our grasp.
What dream, goal, or accomplishment are you NOT choosing to do right now because of fear?
