what I learned today

This morning has started slowly...a very real blessing!  So I am beginning in scripture and prayer.

My devotions took me to I Corinthians 13:12, where God talks about 'one day we will fully know'.

I've always believed that God has let us know in His Word just what we need to know.  Enough challenging goals and information to spend our life pursuing righteous living and to keep us focused and plenty busy!

But this study reminded me of all the unknown things yet to come, that only God knows.  It's easy to go through my day assuming that 'my little world' contains everything there is.  Of course we all know that couldn't be further from the truth as we look beyond ourselves at our current world and it's sad state.  But I sometimes live that way, worrying about trivial things.

But when I take time to wonder about the 'unknown things', things I'm completely unable to handle right now -  it's fascinating!

What is to come - the knowledge we will some day possess  I would guess will make the things we've experienced here and worried about here seem completely ridiculous.

Oh how I long to give my Savior the respect of trusting Him enough to realize that I'm never given more than I can handle here on earth.  That I need to keep my focus fully on kingdom things and FORGET the dumb worries of today.  A lifestyle of worship and trust.

May this day be fully focused and demonstrate to the King of Kings that His agenda and all the unknown things are what motivates us today.
