A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, January 11

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Even as I was typing today’s verses, my mind was wandering back to our new office phones. (Why can’t I transfer messages to Christine? How do I avoid listening to a list of prompts? Why didn’t that guy leave us better instructions? Why is he not answering my text?) Okay, I am back. The everyday concerns of my life so often take over my mind and unfortunately my heart. It takes effort for me to get back to God sometimes. Then, when I realize how caught up in the world I have become, I wonder what God really thinks of me. Paul reminds me as long as I hold on to God, I am holding on to what is not temporary, but what is eternal. Temporary is not all that important in the scheme of things. Eternity with my Creator is everything.

Father God, forgive me when I get caught up in the unimportant everyday frustrations of life. Help me to turn more quickly to you for direction and peace. Amen
