I hope you all slept well! At any moment I can I love to read and study the word. The other thing i love is sharing the word. The word of God is life transforming. People all over the world are going through things. This scripture in Philippians stood out to me this morning. Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.
Paul explains his acceptance regarding the changes in his life as he transformed in to Christ likeness. His former days and life were as dung to him meaningless.
Christians often forget yesterday day being past tense holding on to things of old, causing life to be stuck and stale. But there is a glorious day when we will appreciate the resurrection of Christ embracing the letting go of former things. Yesterday’s hurt, last month disappointment, and last year back set is dead and gone for Christ is the center of our thoughts.
Joy and happiness is in the resurrection! Think on the goodness of Christ and less of the things that seemed to be loss. Remember what God has for you is for you. If by some chance you wake up finding life changing experiences embrace it all. By embracing it you let Christ know His work is worth it and you trust Him with your life as you confessed!
Amen ! God bless you all and let’s pray for those going through storms and coming out of storms!
