Junior, Theology and Secondary Education Double Major
I’d be lying if I said this came easily for me. This is probably the hardest thing we could ever be asked to do, and it is the hardest. But "no pain, no gain," right? Jesus doesn’t say that the reward will be material, or temporal, or temporary, but it is the best thing God could ever give us: eternal life in communion with him. As I go through my days, I notice that I frequently lose my focus on God. Tests need to be studied for, papers need to be written, parents need to be called. But God asks for everything. It is a continual struggle for us to keep our focus on God. Jesus never said it would be easy (in fact, he said just the opposite), but he said it would be worth it.
God, help me to keep my mind on you as I go through my day, and help me remember that everything I do is for your glory. Amen.
