>Have you ever felt like your life was two steps away from greatness as well as two steps away from all of the wheels coming off the train at the same time? I tend to feel this way often. Before you diagnose me as being “Manic Depressive” let me explain.
Depending on the circumstances in my marriage, family, friendships and ministry; I really can end up feeling a wide range of emotions. As the victories and losses of our lives ebb and flow we can all find ourselves overcome with the feelings of excitement and euphoria to the depths of anxiety and grief. It is vital that we make the truth of God’s word our compass; a fixed “True North” for our souls. Without it our emotions can spin out of control and it can lead us to make erratic decisions as well allow us to go to some very dark places in our hearts and minds.
Quick Question: Did you know that God is not restricted by time?
“He is the Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End”. He sees and knows all things. He knows our thoughts and words even before we speak them. He has already been to the end of your situation. He’s seen the outcome. There are no surprises for God. Bottom Line: We can take comfort in knowing that our ‘future’ that seems at times so scary and daunting for us; is already God’s present. He’s already been there and got the t-shirt.
