Day 19: Weightless Hope


This Too Shall Pass~

In our neighborhood

where there was a house yesterday,

now lies a piece of land with rubble~

A piece of land

with the remnants of what was once a home.

A home~

where memories were made.

A home~

that at one time was so precious to the owners.

I can just picture the faces of the first owners

as they put the key in the door & walked through the threshold to what was theirs.

Now today.

it is just a bunch of broken down pieces of wood

& soon it will become a new home for a new family.

And the cycle continues.

I overheard a couple

commenting on how they don't remember the house that was there.

They probably have walked by it 1000 times, and don't remember it,

just as I have walked by it and I don't remember it either.

Here today

gone tomorrow.

This Too Shall Pass~

An Injury,

A Loss

A Conflict

A Trial

This Too Shall Pass~

A cloudy day

This Too Shall Pass~

Not only the hardships,

but also the good

This Too Shall Pass~

1rst, 2nd, 3rd grade...12th

This Too Shall Pass~

Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior...

This Too Shall Pass~

10, 20 30...80 years...

This Too Shall Pass~

Life...

This Too Shall Pass~

But the good news is that

when one comes to the Lord,

one becomes "ageless"~

Living Happily Ever After

guaranteed.

This perfect ending to the perfect fairy tale

is for all of us

when we choose

Jesus to be the author of our story.

Keeping our eyes focused on this amazing ending

when we are faced with the trials of life,

is how we are able to walk through this life with peace in the moment.

God tells us to

"...number our days aright"( Psalm 90:12)

To live in the moment

to enjoy our blessings before us

to get our eyes off of the trials

off of what we are waiting for

and fixed on~

"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

It is very hard to re-focus when our body aches,

or watching a loved one suffer

.and that is why we need to turn to the Lord~

For Him to give us that

dose of strength.

that

dose of hope

that

dose of whatever we need.

Therefore,

Let's

Fast

from the weight of

Despair

by

looking up

to the

Only One

who

takes our despair

here & now

because

He became our eternal Hope.
