This Year: Change Yourself and Not Your Space
Changing where we live or changing our jobs won’t always make us happy or even more contented with our lives. The grass only gets greener under our feet if we do what is expected right where we live right now. Changing a venue won’t produce the happiness we desire. Our best way forward is to face this present moment, focus on what’s happening or not happening take Jesus’ hand and move through it.
In doing this we need only remember, what we often forget. Jesus, who saved us, will not allow us to fall over a cliff. He will only take us where we will be safe. Why? Because His care and concern for each of us is boundless. In return Jesus wants our trust to be just as limitless as His care and concern. When we do, we can see our grass get greener and our burden easier to bear.
St Augustine said it this way: “May thy kingdom come within us, and may we be found within it.” When we live this way, we have no need to change where we live for we have found the greenest place.
