Life…Life is interesting. Just try pausing for a minute and travel back. I find it so amazing how fast and far back I can go in just a couple of seconds. Although I have just lived for about 16 years, I find myself thinking like, “Wow…I could have never arrived here alone” When I reflect back, I understand what it was that kept me together all the way- God’s amazing grace.
Life is reality. That’s the reason why life is not always sunshine and rainbows and instead bleak and painful sometimes. Disappointments, losses, failures, unseen tears, broken hearts.. to have be going through something you would rather not go through.. A young person’s lookout on life can become depressing sometimes. But if you have an everlasting relationship with Jesus Christ, you will find that His grace is sufficient for you each day, every sorrow, and every heartache. May this cherished song help turn and keep your eyes on Jesus:
Lord, as I seek Your guidance for the day,
I find my thoughts unyielding,
confusion crowds my way.
But then when I bow to You,
the challenges You guide me through,
Your promises are ever new,
I claim them for today.
Each new day’s design is charted by Your hand
and graciously revealed as I seek Your master plan.
Keep my footsteps faithful. When from You I go,
return me to the joy that Your blessings can bestow.
Your will cannot lead me where Your grace will not keep me.
Your hand will protect me, I rest in Your care.
Your eyes will watch over me, Your love will forgive me,
And when I am faltering, I still will find You there.
