In the words of Serge Ibaka, we are choosing to "FOCUS" on the eternal
We are halfway through the weekend long wait till we can get further answers as to why the tumor in Lorelei's chest is not smaller after six rounds of chemo.
"Jesus Calling" spoke perfectly to this today.
"Do not search for security in the world you inhabit. You tend to make mental checklists of things you need to do in order to gain control of your life. If only you could check everything off your list, you could relax and be at peace. But the more you work to accomplish that goal, the more things crop up on your list. The harder you try, the more frustrated you become.
There is a better way to find security in this life. Instead of scrutinizing your checklist, focus your attention on My Presence with you. This continual contact with Me will keep you in My Peace. Moreover, I will help you sort out what is important and what is not, what needs to be done now and what does not. Fix your eyes not on what is seen (your circumstances), but on what is unseen (My Presence).
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
—Isaiah 26:3 NKJV
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. --2 Corinthians 4:18"
We get to join our fellow believers in worship today: it's a good day!
And it didn't hurt Lorelei's spirits one bit that her beloved Thunder swept the Dallas Mavs last night in the first round of playoffs. She mustered up enough energy to meet the team at the airport and they were also very glad to see her! Bradley took the attached photo of Coach Brooks talking with Lorelei through the fence.
