Through the seasons of change, our quality of life never diminishes because we are rooted and grounded in Jesus…

Jesus is the Way, and the Truth and the Life, and so many times our quality of life is wrongly determined by so many different things other than Him: from what we can physically do to no longer do, or what we can no longer experience to what we can experience, or what we are unable to accomplish to what we will be able to accomplish. However, nothing in this physical world, nor any change in our circumstance, environment, nor lack of physical function can ever truly diminish our quality of life. Each and every moment is a moment to become more aware of Jesus than anything else and an opportunity to intimately see Philippians 4:13: ‘I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.’  In each and every moment, we actively enjoy His presence filled with His peace, safeguarded by His Breath, and sustained by His joy. Even if it is a moment where He is soothing our aching hearts, wiping our inner tears, encouraging our timid steps to move forward with His boldness, or easing the pain and illness experienced because of troubling waters, He is prominent because we freely choose to be more aware of Him than anything else. Only He can widen our smiles, soften our hearts, and cleanse or minds as our Abba lovingly looks on. ‘Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.’ (Psalm 16:1)
