Hey, friends. Lots of thoughts rolling.
Some on the cusp of creation; some more fully formed but not just there yet.
Some honestly rather heavy.
Heavy but, admittedly, necessary.
Example: the news daily brings us countless reminders of the temporary nature of fame, fortune, and the like.
Worldly accomplishments beckon us here on earth yet they still shift and blow away sooner or later, much like the foolish man’s house on the sand…
For nothing comes with us-not a guitar prowess or a cool rep or or a knowlegable facade.
Not even our own “niceness”.
No…nothing but our faith we carried in life.
Now, it might be faith in a thing.
Our own abilities.
Our bank account.
Or-prayerfully-it will be in Jesus Christ alone.
For those whose faith proved futile, unfortunately, all that awaits is a darkness beyond darkness-an eternal separation from God.
A hard truth indeed!
But, for those who have trusted Christ alone for salvation, there is an eternity of joy and peace in His presence!
So…mixed into those tough thoughts of grief for others who likely may’ve passed without placing their faith on Him alone, is the gratitude for that sure salvation and the rest in that steady companionship-both here and now and in the life to come. 🙂
And all that, be it deemed random or no in the midst of the heavyish and less heavish thought train here today, reminds me of a song.
I checked and, yep, it’s been a bit since my last song share. So…yes. It’s time.
Today, after some (pretty major) deliberation, I decided I should share our community youth group “theme song”- “What a Friend” by Matt Maher.
Or one of the theme songs, at least. 😏 We are a seriously musical lot.
Anyway…it’s such a comforting word in the midst of troubling times!
Now, this version is likely a lot more professional sounding than what our little group pulls off with our rudimentary acoustics.
But, at any rate, may we sing along with what is the most important key- sincere hearts, rejoicing at the truth of lives redeemed and an eternal home to look forward to.
Blessings and Prayers, dear friends! Keep your eyes on Him! ❤
