“Haley, does your life fee focused and steady right now?” I got a little ping in my inbox at the beginning of this month with a question I haven’t been able to answer. A question that under any normal circumstances, I’d be able to answer in a heartbeat. 𝘋𝘰𝘦𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘧𝘰𝘤𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘺? My heart so desperately wants to say yes, but my brain desperately wants to say no. Am I steady and focused in my faith? Yes. Am I focused and steady in just regular life? Absolutely not. My life feels like that photo of that line going form point A to point B, winding and impossible to untangle. But God is so much greater than my squiggly spaghetti line. He is always firm and steady, waiting for us to fall into His arms. His Truth is unchanging. It brings to ruin all of my worries and anxieties. God made us to be in constant pursuit of Him. He made us in His image. He did not create is to worry and be anxious— He created us to live freely in His grace. He has created us to be open and desiring of His Word. He is so much greater than anything we could encounter. Because of Jesus on the cross, we have a firm foundation in the Lord’s grace and mercy. So, does your life feel focused and steady?
