“…until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” Ephesians 4:12-13
I loved that my prayer this morning was about how hard it is to keep my mind focused on Him when the waves of life blow…and this was the verse the Spirit laid on my heart.
As I learn how to be unity by my faith and the Spirit of the Lord, I am made more mature. As I move ever more towards the likeness of my Savior, I move farther away from the child I have always been…not losing my child-like faith, but rather allowing it to balance me against the rough winds and uneven waves that come in the advice of the world…and of those who don’t put their eyes on Him to walk thru it.
Perspective…the “p” word all my kids hate when I use because it means they aren’t seeing the full picture (…ok, I don’t like it much either when God (or my husband) throw it at me either…) …the Christian walk is all about perspective: are we gonna take His or ours?
And so, today, I once again took His hand and searched for a new view on the world…
Looking up, as always…
