If you sense your life’s a mess right now, this is simply because your fears are just a little stronger than your faith.
Robin Sharma, "5am Club", Harper Collins
This is interesting. This caught my attention. Sometimes I feel like my life is in disarray. I now understand that because I'm focused more on those things that concern me as opposed to focusing on Christ, my life is limited and, frankly, full of frightening prospects.
Focusing on Jesus Christ not only forces me to quit being selfish but it also eases my fears and concerns. It allows me to realize that my future is not bleak. Though my physical body may be broken now and useless in the future in this life, my faith in Jesus Christ will carry me through this life regardless.
After this life, in the resurrection, I will get my perfected body back. That's a given gift. But, what I will also have is the faith in Christ that carried me through this short mortal life. That faith, if strengthened appropriately, provides me with an eternity of joy, happiness, peace, accomplishment, love, and relief. And that's not a free gift given to me but one that requires work.
Without faith, eternity will be bleak....and neverending. Can you imagine? Talk about fear.
