So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
I’ve loved reading through 2 Corinthians because it has been so applicable in my life.
I find myself looking very fickle. Which I’m not. I’m more so faithful than fickle. But I am just a bit melodramatic. I imagine myself taking a break, all of sudden disappearing off the edge of the world, finding myself in a village at the side of mountain in Europe, making my own wine and cheese.
Anyway, I listen to our church sermon. Then I read a devotional. Then I read my book. Then a verse comes up. Then I hear a really good podcast, etc… And they all say the same thing! Sometimes people wonder, how does God speak? Sometimes, as simple as that^. Bizarre.
I listened to something this week that put my idea of rest into a different perspective. Finding rest and peace in Him, in the midst of where I am. So. I’m just going to apply it to my life and go with it… And ask Peter to take kids out of the house or go on long rides in the car to clear my head and think straight when I really need it.
Free to be me. Whatever that means. But that’s how I feel.
