After taking our bicycles out yesterday, enjoying a gorgeous day in our seaside community, I’m paying the price. It’s spring in Florida, so the oak trees are blooming along with many other trees and plants; pollen has filled the air! Allergy medicine has become my best friend. What’s sad is that it’s the best time of the year to go outside and enjoy the weather. I want to sit on the porch and feel the warm sun and the crisp breeze, but there is a toll; swollen eyes and a runny nose. I won’t let it stop me from enjoying myself; I will keep going, breaking down any roadblocks that stand in my way!
Everyone has issues they must deal with; no one has a perfect life, the enemy will always stand in our way, seeking to discourage us. We won’t be comfortable on this earth until we come to rule with Jesus; there is too much sin around us. Remember, we are only ambassadors here, and we have our mission. Once that mission is complete, God will call us home; until that time comes, be grateful that he chose you for a time such as this.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:20
