Recently I went and played tennis with a co-worker near the church where I laid my 80 year-old mom to rest about a month ago. After we finished playing tennis I went by and checked out my mom’s gravesite and while I was there, somewhat sad, I reflected on good memories of the past. One of the things that ran through my mind was that the first 25 years of my mom’s life was before I was born and not a part of her life. Now, for the next 25 years or so, I will live my life without her and a new normal in my life. A hard but sobering thought. As I was leaving the graveyard, I noticed two vehicles near the playground of the church and one of the cars had a WBFJ magnet on it. So I approached the mom and told them they had been spotted. She was so thrilled!! As I turned to leave, it was like God spoke to me and said, “just keep doing what you’ve been doing,” with or without your mom. In other words, keep pressing on for the Lord and the building of His Kingdom. Maybe you’re struggling today or going through something today. I encourage you to look and listen for His still small voice for comfort in the mist of your emotional day.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 (NIV)
