I said, "What did you think, Miracle?"
Miracle responded with chuckle (honestly, she did), "I was thinking about Jesus."
I know that God has a lesson for me in all of this.
Life for the Jensen's in past year hasn't been easy compared to the other times that we have experienced in our life so far. It's full of unknowns.
Daily I am thinking, "I have no clue what is going on God; but you know Lord."
But the truth of the matter is I know one thing that is going on...people are lost and hurting and looking for the one and only Savior Jesus Christ. He is one of our only clues that heaven is being prepared for us who believe and this world is not our home. I know that Jesus fills my heart and mind and soul with hope that does not disappoint.
So Miracle told me! What should I be doing when I find myself in a place that I have no clue how, why, what I am doing at this minute? I should be thinking about Jesus.
Here are some of the truths God has given me to claim this past week:
Psalm 16:5 Lord you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed;, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
1 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweights them all. 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.
So take it from the faith of a child...in a clueless situation?...think about Jesus!
