Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
As I contemplated what was on my heart this morning I was struggling with a scripture. Then I found this…you can read the whole chapter here and it is worthwhile reading!!
Sometimes in life we are faced with a decision that is uncomfortable. It isn’t what WE want. In seeking HIS will things are not too clear. There are pros and cons to both sides of the issue. We want to do what is best for the family, what is best for the long term, but what about now? What about what I want? Why do I always have to be the one to bend? Nothing makes sense, there is no clear cut answer. Things are foggy.
Kind of like this view out my kitchen window this morning. I know what is out there, but I can’t see it very clearly. So what do I do when faced with decisions in life that fall into this category? I think the answer lies in the scripture…”keep seeking the things above.” Pray, read His word, seek His guidance. He will answer and all will be clear…
Lord, thank you for your guidance in my life. I ask, Lord, that you guide those among us that are facing difficult decisions. Help them to seek You and the things above. Give them guidance and wisdom and a clear view of Your will, then courage to follow it. Thank you, Lord.
Thanks for the link to that chapter. I needed that this morning.
Guess you are back from the ocean–glad you had a safe trip.
Keep trusting God dear friend and those foggy decisions will clear.
Nice post Mary! My Dad always says that God will give us a sense of "oughtness" about what we should do. Even when the decision is difficult, when we pray through it, we will feel that this is what we ought to do.
Thank you for this post Mary! I have been struggling today and this verse really spoke to me…
"Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth"
May you feel his blessings surround you all day.
Difficult decisions, difficult times at this time in my life. Thanks so much for this reminder and encouragement. I needed it.
Those foggy windows . . . cause us to stay on our knees, huh?
