Sunday is a day of rest, relaxation, and recuperation. Not only do we spend these days resting and recovering from the week behind us, we also take the time to plan ahead and remember what brought to this point. In church today, I heard something that I’ve heard a thousand times before but it never really sunk in until today. ”God is the goal.” Now, this may not seem revolutionary or profound, but it was something I, personally, really needed to hear.
I have felt a little lost these past few months, wondering where the old me went. It has felt like I am no longer the person I was 2 years ago, and I’ve been searching for reasons why. And today I felt the answer fall on me like a ton of bricks. I have strayed from the ultimate goal and have set my eyes on things unworthy of my time. My pastor said something that really struck a cord in me. “I want to be know for what I believe in, not what I disagree with.” I have found myself becoming more and more judgmental and negative recently, and God specifically teaches against that.
We are to love our neighbors and our enemies. And we are to love ourselves. We know the mistakes we’ve made, and it causes us to judge ourselves harder than any other person does. Our sins have been erased by the cross and we need to remember that. We are our own worst critic and sometimes we turn out to be our worst enemy. So, today I challenge anyone reading this and myself to turn our focus to Him and not our failures. He knows where we come from and loves us all the same. The past, present, and future is in His hands. Rely on Him and trust that He loves us and will take care of us.
