Life is hectic right now for a lot of people. Sickness and heartache abound, and the effects of the years show their ugly head and reveal a glimpse of the inevitable. And those of us who look on are powerless against what was set in motion back at the very beginning of time.
Even Jesus chose to lay aside his power and accept what the world offered.
In Matthew 14, after Jesus heard that John had been killed he went away to a solitary place to be alone with God.
In his heartache and anguish Jesus ran to God.
What would our life look like right now if all of the things rising up against us made us run to Jesus?
For a people who have so many options it takes an intentional effort to remain close to Jesus every day, so that our first reaction to crisis…is Jesus.
Just some thoughts this morning…
