It’s a fact of life we will lose things important to us. Secure jobs suddenly fold up leaving people with no income. Investments sift like sand through our fingers. Leadership for the people becomes a disappointing power struggle among themselves with no concern for the needs of the people. Churches are closing their doors because there is no longer enough interest to afford staying open.
These situations go unnoticed by many people because they have not experienced these type losses. They are indeed blessed. However most of us have endured these heart breaking losses where efforts have dissolved in front of our eyes.
As we stay focused on our Lord we can have peace in all circumstances. Jesus is our only hope in all things. He created us, loves us and cares for us. As we live each day looking at the things that have worked out we can see that our greatest treasure is in the love of Jesus Christ and that treasure is never taken from us. The more we stay focused on God and what He is doing we will start to see the clouds will give way to sunshine. Our greatest asset is the priceless love that only Jesus can give and He never takes it away.
1 Timothy 6:6-8
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
