It seems hard to wrap my head around this life. And then I remember, “Oh yes, life makes no sense without God.” King Solomon taught us that in the book of Ecclesiastes.
It’s the mystery of the ages. Poets and songwriters have labored hard on this topic. I wake up, I wash my face, I make the coffee, I plan my day, I feed the cat, and then I go about whatever my business is for that day. Tomorrow I will wake up and do it all over again. Days somehow turn into weeks and weeks into months and months turn into years. Before you know it, you’re looking into the mirror and wondering who that old person is, who is looking back at you.
I’d better decide to be very intentional about how I live each day. Am I trusting God to show me what HIS plans for my day are? Am I living in a dug out rut, or is my life vibrant with faith and the Presence of the God Who saved me? Am I sharing Christ with others daily? Being available to tell people how they can know for sure that there is a God in Heaven, and that they can KNOW beyond a doubt that their future is safe in His care? This needs to be the business of my life.
One day this home I live in will pass away, all my friends and family will be elsewhere, and I will be left with my Saviour, Jesus Christ. Right now I have to feed the cat and then run out to do some errands. But this is my wake-up call today.
Life without God makes no sense at all, so I’d better be sure that I’m living today in Him, through Him and for Him. Help me Lord, to trust You today.
“For in Him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are His offspring.'” Acts 17:28
