It’s moving day! I’m excited but exhausted, and it hasn’t even begun. This body is worn out! My arm feels like it’s going to fall off from all the painting I’ve done over the last couple of weeks, but the house feels all fresh and renewed. It’s amazing what a little paint will do. I’ve pushed this body hard, but it’s all I’ve got to use right now. One day, I will be absent from this body and fully clothed in life, no longer mortal but immortal, dwelling in the presence of Jesus. The pain I feel reminds me that I’m still alive and still on a mission to make known the ways of God and to bring others in on the deal. There is no better way to show your appreciation for all that Jesus has done for you than to live your life for him. That’s what I’m trying to do.
Here is how good God is: this verse fell into my daily Bible reading and fits perfectly with what I’m experiencing. Why am I amazed by him? He’s always so good to me.
For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 2 Corinthians 5:4
