I've been meaning to update for quite sometime, and trust me, I do have some thoughts and more stories to share. But, life has had me running crazy as of late.
This morning I was reading Jude, and the second part of verse one said this: "To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ:"
I have to admit, huge comfort came to me in reading that. "kept by Jesus Christ"
Yes I am a full time student. But I am kept by Jesus Christ.
I am leading a team on an overseas mission trip this summer. But I'm being kept by Jesus.
Yes, I do spend about 6 hours a week on projects to fight human trafficking--But my Jesus is keeping me.
My family does have many stresses right now with health and the school year coming to an end, But we are being kept by Jesus.
I am doing a fantastic program and being mentored in my photography, that does take up much of my time yet all the while not only am I kept by Jesus, but I'm loved by God.
I work as a barista, and have many other projects, and Jesus is keeping me. Close to His heart.
My friends, I just wanted to share this with you, not because I want to promote my insane schedule (I really don't recommend this life), but because I know you're lives are just as crazy. But you too can be kept by Jesus Christ. He is weaving together a beautiful work in your life, don't doubt it. Life will bring challenges, surprises, more than we can handle. But since we can't see what God is weaving out of our lives, my prayer for us all is that we will be able to trust in the fact that we are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ.
