Too Good Not To Share

Some things are just too good not to share. This excerpt came from Spurgeon's "Morning and Evening" from the reading of May 11th.

"It is well there is One who is ever the same, and who is ever with us. It is well there is one stable rock amidst the billows of the sea of life. O my soul, set not thine affections upon rusting, moth-eaten, decaying treasures, but set thine heart upon him who abides  forever faithful to thee. Build not thine house upon the moving quicksands of a deceitful world, but found thy hopes upon this rock, which amid descending rain and roaring floods, shall stand immovably secure. My soul, I charge thee, lay up thy treasure in the only secure cabinet; store thy jewels where thou canst never lose them. Put thine all in Christ; set all thine affections on his person, all thy hope in his merit, all thy trust in his efficacious blood, all thy joy in his presence, and so thou mayest laugh at loss, and defy destruction."

Life is like a roller coaster, or at least it has been for us in the last year. Circumstances have rooted out where we have really put our affections and revealed how much we cherish comfort and order. This little reading pointed me once again to the One who remains unchangeable, who is our hope and is faithful in all things. Will I ever really get this?!

Great post to start off this week on a right/positive note. Being unperfected humans, we won't fully realize just how wonderful and faithful God is until we are with Him. Now we get glimpses, and the evil one does his best to blind us from seeing even those glimpses.

We need to keep our hearts and minds focused on Jesus, calling out to Him throughout each and every day, trusting that He is indeed working all things out.

Hello, I must say that life has been a bit of a thrill ride around here. But we do hang on tight to Him...
We are in training to be able to persevere to the end!
