A Thought: Back to “Normal.”

Most of us appreciate a bit of a change in routine every now and then—a new challenge at work; a vacation away; a new interest or hobby, perhaps. Changes in health or workload usually are not so welcome, however. We long for ‘days past’ and ‘how things used to be.’ But, God designed us to learn from the past, apply it to the present, and feel hope for our future. That HOPE is Christ. Jesus didn’t go around looking over his shoulder to what was or could have been. “He set His face toward Jerusalem” to complete what He was born to do—Love humanity through their sin so they could come out on the other side of salvation.
Today, don’t focus on regrets, but trust God that He is leading you where you are supposed to go. Keep your focus like Christ kept His focus, and let God lead you to your destination. Have a blessed Monday!

Lk. 9:51 “When the days drew near for Him to be taken up, He set His face to go to Jerusalem.”
