I’d really like to get to know you better. I am sorry that I have been pushing you to the back of my life and giving precedence to all my pressures and stresses (and, yes, I admit it, worries). It’s not that I didn’t think Jesus was important. It is that I didn’t think Jesus was the most important and, as I have been learning lately, He is (Matthew 6:33).
If life is a ship, obeying Jesus is the rudder and the helm that directs me through life – no matter how chaotic. God’s word is the sails that pull me in the right direction. His presence is the anchor that keeps me grounded (Hebrews 6:19). And, right now, all that seems very important right with the anxiety, uncertainty, and senselessness in my life.
Can you help me put Jesus first? I want to treat Him the way He deserves, but I am so practiced at putting other things first. I am not even sure what it looks like to put Christ first. Maybe it starts with thinking about you, Faith, the right way? Can you help me do that? I want to but I don’t really know how.
All I know is, the just shall by faith. Maybe you can explain that to me a bit more.
Until next time,
Ps. Yes, Lord, this letter is really to You.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
