It is amazing how much I love my husband. Some never get to experience that, “blow me away I would die for you in a heart beat love”. It is a gift and it is incredible. But, even better than that, and this just hit me really hard this morning, is the love I share with Christ. There is nothing like it! I am head over heels in love with Someone I have never met in person. And when I begin to worry about things, take my eyes off of Him and let to do lists and worries overshadow Him I almost just fall to pieces. I was reminded this morning that every little thing is going to be ok because I have Him. The other things don’t matter. For real, my eternal security is set. I might mess up today as a wife and mom (most likely I will). I might have the dreaded disease I found on Web M.D. (crossing my fingers I don’t). I might not get that stupid to do list done (not going to happen). But, I have Him always and forever.
Colossians 3:1-2 says, “He is your life. So, if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ – that’s where the action is.
