But I just love it so!

A change in circumstances can be so traumatic. No money, Poor health, family feuds, church issues...even politics...can cause stress. This must be because our feet are heavy in this world. We think this is it - but it is not.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Colossians 3:1-3

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

Amy Charmichael wrote "We must look upon the world, with all its delights and all its attractions, with suspicion and reserve. We are called to a higher Kingdom, we are touched with a diviner Spirit. It is not that He forbids us this or that comfort or indulgence; it is not that He is stern, demanding us to follow a narrow path. But we who love our Lord and whose affections are set on Heavenly things voluntarily and gladly lay aside the things that charm and ravish the world, that, for our part, our hearts may be ravished with the things of Heaven that our whole being may be poured forth in constant and unreserved devotion in the service of the Lord who died to save us.”

These are difficult days. Look up and take off those heavy shoes that keep you where you don't belong.
