The Pain of Loss!

Philippians 3:8 (New International Version)

8. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

I know about this "loss", how about you? The older I get the more intimately I know about it. Hair begins to fall out, muscles turn to fat, jobs are lost, savings dwindle, and friends and family began to move away or die. Of course the next step for us is to try to prevent it! Expensive policies are bought for protection, thousands of dollars are spent to preserve physical beauty; the list goes on and on. Now, these things are not bad if we remember that God wants us to be responsible and make wise informed decisions. BUT, when we become obsessed with avoiding loss, we need to stop and try to figure a few (maybe a lot) things out. We need to remember this life is very temporary, we are only here for a short period of time. As we realize we cannot stop this "ocean tide" of events, it is time to seek the Lord. I can tell you from personal experience if you have not already, you will begin to call on Him for help and understanding. What is the most important thing in this life? what happens after this short life is over with? what is eternity and where will we spend it? I pray this day for you and me that we will begin to ask for wisdom, ask God to search our hearts and unveil His purpose for our life. Lets not get our "needle stuck" on something we cannot control. Read the scripture again, and be blessed. God loves you and He will never leave you.

I love your blog and your music. This post reminds me of the song, "All I Once Held Dear" ("Knowing You"). I posted about it at http://bornagainandblessed.blogspot.com/2009/08/knowing-you-jesus.html .
