Last Long Weekend of the Summer

It is the last long weekend of the summer! There are so many things that you could have done for the last long weekend of the summer – family BBQing, picnicking, hiking; going on a road trip, grabbing a last minute flight; doing an end-of season clean up, going back to school shopping, and preparing for the weather as it gets colder. With so much to do and so many distractions in the world around us, how can we keep focused on Heavenly things? A few ways we can try include: making Him a priority perhaps by making time for Him first thing in the morning, developing a habit of constant prayer, and asking God to remind us of His unconditional, constant love for us. It’s important for us to know that even when we forget God, He never forgets us! He knows what’s happening to us every moment of the day, and He also watches over us all the time. Make time for Him, rely and call on Him, and pray to Him, and He will always be there ready to answer. The answers may not be what we always want, but God has a plan for us and knows the whole story for start to finish, as we’re reminded in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Blessings to you this long weekend!
