Are We There Yet?

trees trip quoteI can’t say I’m there at this moment, but I look forward with great expectation to the day when at last God is the true focal point of my life. I simply cannot fathom the utter joy and total peace that will come with complete release to Him. Nor can I imagine the feeling of truly knowing, deep within my soul and spirit, that He loves me unconditionally. The world will be a different place! The hills will be alive with the sound of music! All creation will clap its hands and shout for joy! When the truth of God’s love penetrates my mind and settles in my heart, soul, and spirit, I will go in joy, and He will lead me forth in peace. And… I will at last be able to say, “I know Him! I am one of His!”

I haven’t mastered the “rejoice in our sufferings” aspect of God yet, but I’m getting closer. I have to admit, too, I don’t suffer much,and God takes excellent care of me. I’m very blessed in so many ways, and it seems I’m seldom lacking anything.

Allowing God to take care of things doesn’t mean we can sit back, and not do our best, but, we can maintain our peace and confidence while in the midst of whatever challenges we face. When we truly grasp the fact God is with us and will see us through every situation, our character and hope will grow stronger, and we will rejoice even in the midst of life’s trials and troubles.

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
