So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. - Colossians 2:6-7
Dear Jesus, I remember several times in my life when all the complexities of the human condition were blown away and it seemed that there was only you and me standing together. Each time this happened, it was an overwhelming experience of peace and purity. I left each experience with renewed strength to face anything that came my way because I was fully aware that I was rooted in you. It made me feel strong. I want to live my life in you. It is the secret to my spirituality. It is the true Christian faith. So, today, I ask you again, please remind me of your presence, renew me in your words, strengthen my soul to live by your grace. Otherwise, I will be blown away when the storms life come my way. AMEN
We are no match for the challenges of earthly life without Christ. We must build our lives on Christ and his word in order to whether the storms.
