Eternity Based Thinking

The do what feels good in the moment, wild, uncontrolled life, of ME & I that our current world system promotes can be very enticing when we allow our focus to be based upon the “present” instead of based upon “eternity”. When we look to fix things or people; feel good; or be entertained, right now, we tend to cut corners, neglect others, or just make poor choices all together. But, when we step back and look at our situation or our life from the perspective of spending eternity with our Heavenly Father, suddenly the enticements of this world system grow dim. This week at my women’s group we talked about the things that can entice us away from living a life fully surrendered to our Lord. We all agreed it is easy to lose focus when we get our eyes off Jesus and begin focusing on personal desires, concerns, or even disappointments which can cause us to turn to the world for a quick fix. At times it can seem easier to turn to comfort food, busyness (shopping or running around town), or checking out mentally with a glass of wine and a “chic-flic”. However, we have all learned that in the end these choices often, make us feel worse, not better. So, gather some friends together as I do on Thursday nights with the focus of keeping each other accountable to turning to Jesus instead of to this world system. Be honest about what entices you to turn to the quick fixes or what can get you off the course you desire to follow. We need each other, God never intended us to walk this journey alone. Life can be all the more sweeter when shared with a few sassy friends of like mind and heart. Remember, Jesus offers us the best life!
