Sometimes, we get lost in the ‘every day’ of life, and the confusion of life itself. We often forget to look at the bigger picture and realize that the life we are busy living here on earth, right now, is but temporal, passing like a vapour and that our destiny is so much bigger and more glorious (if we are in Christ and trusting Christ as our Saviour and Redeemer), than this life or this earth…
“As we grow older, we look back on life and have regrets. We’re discouraged by the passing of our dreams. We realize we’re not the person we once want to be.
Some people turn into cynics. Others become paralyzed. But the Bible teaches that this life is not our destination. It’s a preparation for a final destination. And that makes all the difference.
Lost in the Middle reveals that difficulties in life aren’t evidence of God’s inattention. In fact, they are signs of His grace, love, and faithfulness. God will take us where we don’t want to go to produce in us what we couldn’t achieve on our own. It’s called uncomfortable grace.
When you begin to accept the theology of uncomfortable grace, it changes everything about your life. Aging, regret, and disappointment are no longer paralyzing realities. You no longer have to be afraid of life. You can move forward with anticipation because God is with you.” Lost In The Middle – Paul Tripp
