Taken from my blog journal one year ago…this is still as relevant today as it was then…
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
Ever had one of those days? You know the one I mean. The feeling of “running on empty” trying to find that inner strength that gets lost on the mundane – trivial things we must do during the day. Oh they are necessary – but sometimes they “rob” us of motivation and joy. Life can’t be exciting and fresh all the time – that’s not reality. No – it’s not even reasonable – and yet…we search for it – we long for it.
This morning I read the above scripture with fresh eyes. I am thankful for the simple truth in these words of Jesus. I am grateful for what He accomplished for my sake – for your sake – so that we could experience that eternal life – No fear – No dread. A Hope. A Completion. No one – Nothing can prevent us – keep us – hold us back – snatch us away.
I don’t know about you – but there is a reassurance in these words. It is Powerful – and Simple. It is profound. And no matter what is going on in my “mundane” little world – I have the safety net of His grace and love – whispering to me – that I belong to Him – I am loved – I am His.
My prayer for you today is this: That you would experience His love and grace – His safety net of Eternity for you today. As you go about your work, your mundane and ordinary tasks – that you would know the one who loves you – who watches over you – who keeps you in His Hand. Safe. Complete. Loved.
I am praying for you today,
