Happy Father’s Day! We are headed to church this morning, and then my sweet daddy is coming over for lunch. Father’s Day is different for us these days.
It seems like just a few years ago, we were going to lunch at my Mom and Dad’s house. We would spend a few hours there and then head to my sister-in-law’s house and celebrate with my father-in-law.
We have lost my mom and both Wayne’s parents. Change is inevitable, and I wish we could go back in time, but we can’t. We have to keep pushing forward.
This year has certainly brought a lot of change in our lives. 2020 has already been one for the record books, and we’re only halfway through it.
Sometimes I want to close the world off and just hunker down in my home. Maybe it will all go away.
But that’s not a possible scenario and scripture reminds me….we don’t give up.
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
Don’t give up, LOOK UP! Fix our eyes on what we can’t see and know that there will come a day when all things will be made new.
There’s a song I’ve been listening to called My Weapon by Natalie Grant.
The chorus says this:
Your presence is my greatest weapon
Pushing back the darkness
Breaking every chain
In a broken and messed up world, Jesus is our weapon. So let’s speak His name!
Have a blessed day!
