Do I have confidence in my eternity? Yes. I believe that Jesus rose from the grave and conquered death. Thus the grave has no fear. Death has no sting. The separation is a graduation, not a termination.
Do I have confidence in my day? No. That thought came to me as I was having a worry moment. I was looking at my ability to walk successfully through the day. I was considering the day ahead filled with students who did not want to learn and administrators who did not want to lead. I was feeling futile.
Then I realized that my eternity is a continuation of my day. If I can believe for eternity I should be able to believe for the next 24 hours.
(Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.It isn’t very consistent to believe in forever and not today.
Now to apply it as I drive.
