Beau's Sunday Sermon -- Seize Today

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiates 3:11 NKJV) Everything and everyone God has made is beautiful. We cannot imporve on what God has already, and is doing. What we must do is allow Him to work through us. He put eternity in our hearts so that we focus on our final destination and stay connected to Him. Yet, we may often feel that the tasks that He gives us do to are small, trivial, unimportant, and nothing compared to the big picture. We feel we “see in a glass darkly.” God wants to keep His works a mystery to us for now. He doesn’t want us to focus on the big picture, but rather concentrate on the present task at hand that He gives us. He doesn’t want us to focus on the past or the future, just today. And, since He doesn’t reveal His plans to us in advance there is nothing left to do but trust in Him and just concentrate on the present. After all, isn’t concentrating on getting the most out of the exact moment you’re in the best way to live anyway?! Yeah, God ways truly ARE the best! Seize the day! Love, Beau
