Just a Thought with Coach T on Being Intentional - Wherever I Am, I AM
Just A Thought
Just A Thought is a new segment I'm starting here on Minister Fitness, wher I share one of the many thoughts that pass through my mind during the day.
Wherever I Am, I AM
One of the things I love to do with my daughter is help get her ready for school. i stand with her as she waits for her bus. While we wait, I direct her attention to the sky. Some mornings it is cloudy, but those clear, dark early morning skies are the best. I tell her stories to get her imagination going.
When my daughter left for school on the bus, I had this thought:
"Wherever I am...I AM!"
Wherever I am, The Great I AM is there also. It is a great thought. I shared it with a friend, as a reminder to us both to see every situation this way - in the presence of tThe Almighty God.
Wherever I am, GOD IS. This is not only about physical location or presence. This one sentence is about everything. It is a reminder that I am never alone and that there is no "coincidence" as I live moment by moment in Christ Jesus. It is also a reminder that God created me and placed His power in me to Advance His Kingdom.
I am never alone.
Hebrews 13:5b; Romans 8:38,39
Remember: Not By Sight;
I used to hear this verse used all kinds of ways. In context, the sentence appears as an aside or parenthetical or side note. It is not the central point or focus or big idea of this part of the letter. However, I find myself drawn to the hope that Paul expressed even in this side note.
Because of this Jesus of the Bible, I hope, even when situations and circumstances change in negative ways.
I do a lot of rambling in these videos, but the one point I want to drive home is that my hope is in Jesus alone. I am simply pointing people to Chrsit.
