Time is so precious. I enjoy being ‘busy’ instead of being bored but as a new mom I’ve come to realize how much I value time! I often think ‘if I only had more time in the day.’ It’s so easy to get distracted by the things of life. Although I enjoy an organized house, I have to admit this is not one of my strengths. But if I had more time then my house would be clean and organized right? (wink, wink).
God reminded me of something when I read this story. It’s not about having the cleanest house, the best blog post, the best Easter eggs, and the list could go on. It’s about HIM. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in life. But what truly matters? This is why I try to read His word every day. It gives me perspective and reminds me of the things that are eternal, lovely, pure.
So what is that one thing that Jesus talks about? It’s His presence; Fellowship with the Lord! My prayer this Easter weekend is that you would find Jesus and His everlasting love. He paid the price on calvary, He died so that you may live. He overcame the grave so you may be saved. That same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead can live in you! Everlasting life, peace that passes all understanding, and an eternal love can be yours.
