A ship lost out at sea, an intruder in your home, a scorpion in your bed, a bully threatening you, a terrorist attack or world war III . . . all legitimate fears, I think. But what scares me the most is apathy concerning my faith in God.
It is easy to focus on the here and now – that is all that is in front of us. But to maintain a zeal for the unseen, which lasts forever is not easy to achieve. I can become easily distracted and thrown off of a consistent devotion time, or allow that time to become stale.
So many have walked before us living to please their flesh, but I cherish watching the faithful who never cease to seek God and know Him more. That is how I want to be, all my days. I want to leave a legacy of faith for my children, where they can say I walked with God and was not merely religious.
Life is a mere whisper in the voice of all of creation and time . . . I pray that I can remember that truth and make my life count for Jesus and His glory.
