Or, have you felt aimless, lost, unsure of how to proceed with life?
It should have been easy.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you probably remember that my Maggie (11 year old daughter) died March 21, 2013. It has been just over a year. We are doing fine. We know we will see her again. I bring this up because I thought anything else I would have to deal with in life would be easy. I mean, God got us through losing our daughter. How could anything else be a struggle?
Oh, silly silly Jane. Life is glorious but life is a struggle. Each new phase, each new season has its own challenges, changes and upsets. And change is never easy even when you welcome it. And maybe as we get older change leaves us flailing for a longer period of time? I am not sure (I just woke up my two youngest children to get ready for Sunday School and I stepped on a tack...it is still hurting. And yesterday I poked my big left toe with a pitchfork. Ugggg. Those are deadly tools if not used correctly!).
My children have begun to fly on their own. My oldest son is now a college student. My next child in line is a senior and already flying quite a bit outside the nest. My third oldest child turned 15 yesterday but he will be home with us for as long as we all live most likely. What a blessing he is.
I better go feed that 15 year old now.
This life is temporary. Don't hold onto anyone or anything too tightly. Otherwise your fingers will be ripped off when they or it leaves your life. But Jesus will never leave. Sink your fingers into Him. Sink your entire self into Him. He is forever and ever and ever.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, and yes forever." Hebrews 13:8
