Does it Really Matter?
How many times do we get upset about things that drive us nuts all day? Someone took something and didn’t ask, the house is a mess, traffic…The list goes on and on!
So all day we have been overwhelmed with these thoughts. Does it bring us joy? Are we walking in peace? No, and think about how much time we have invested in those thoughts. In the long run, does it really matter??? Will it cause us to be closer to God? Are we accomplishing His destiny in our lives?
I’m reminded of the saying “Don’t sweat the small stuff”, and it’s so true! Let’s spend our days thinking of God, thanking Him for ALL the Blessings He has given us, being desperate to be in His presence, touching people’s lives, and seeing them change!
When our mission is done here on earth and God calls us home, what a joy it will be to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:21) So when we face our day, and things come before us, let us be able to step back and say to ourselves, “Does this really matter?” and draw ourselves back to what does matter, being in the presence of God and living in the joy and peace only He can give!!!
“One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
And to inquire in His temple.”
Pastor Connie Salerno
