Welcome to March! Oh. Oops. : ) I'm a *few* days late for that. ; ) Time is FLYING. I'm pretty sure before I know it the trip is going to be over...and all the wonderful friends I've made will be far away, all the good times will be pleasant memories and all the hardships overcome will be a reminder to us of God's faithfulness and love. It's all going to just be a memory...something fading and slipping away as we press forward...
What are you doing right now that will make a difference in the next hundred years?
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
How often we strive for something to see immediate results? Let's make a difference for eternity, not just something that might be remembered 6 months from now, a year or ten years from now.
The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17 NIV
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is
like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever."
1 Peter 1:23-25(a) NIV
This passage which is quoting Isaiah is one of my favorite captions to go with flower photos, because while flowers are gorgeous and God's workmanship they are fading. Reminding us again what is seen is temporary.
