The one thing I want the Lord to see in me. The one thing I am so grateful for today.
HE is faithful. Always.
It’s been a year of testing and questions and new adventures and finishing deployments and…well, let’s just say it’s been a year. A beautiful, challenging, stretching, learning, growing year. Through it all, there has been one constant thread – HE has been faithful. Every. Single. Day.
I pray the Lord sees the same thing in me. Every moment, every day is there a thread that is constant in my life as well? I long for the words from Jesus, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21). I want to live a life of faithfulness to the Lord.
But looking at my life as a whole can be somewhat overwhelming – I mean, it is a WHOLE life. That’s a lot on my plate.
The Lord has reminded me lately though that I am not responsible for my whole life today. I am simply responsible for today.
Obedience – it’s what He has called me to today. Obedience in the little things from words with a neighbor to time with the Lord are what I should be focused on. Knowing that stringing together days of obedience leads to a legacy of faith and a trail of Jesus. If I keep taking steps in the right direction, I end up exactly where I am supposed to be.
So today I am determined to follow Him, one step at a time, one act of obedience at a time. Trusting that if I do that every day I end up leaving the legacy I desire. Knowing I will mess up along the way, I am also thankful for His grace.
For it is His grace that looks through my mistakes and sees a heart that truly does long to serve Him.
He is faithful, my friends. Praying that we are as well.
What has He called you to do today?
