As I talked with my small group after the lesson (a group of high school sophomore girls), we looked at some different verses that talk about our eyes and where they should be focused.
This morning I opened my computer to find that this was KLove’s verse for today:
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand.
~ Colossians 3:1
We didn’t look at this passage last night, and I wish we would have! I hope I remember to share it with them next week!
For today, as you venture through all of your day’s many activities and appointments, I will be praying that you can “set your sights on the realities of Heaven!”
I love that phrase, don’t you?
I am teaching today and getting things ready for my sub, and tonight will be filled with packing and making sure I have remembered everything for the wedding!
We are pulling out early in the morning and heading to Virginia, so I will be away from the Internet until Sunday.
Thank you for praying for Erich and Mallory as they start a new chapter in their lives.
I love you all so much, and of all the things I do in the morning to get ready for another day of school, spending time with God and with you is definitely my favorite part!!
I am so thankful for each of you.
Take a minute to examine your eyes and ask yourself this question:
“Are my sights set on the realities of Heaven?”
I hope your answer is “YES!!”
