With the beginning of a new school year and our 3 kids in 3 different schools across Snellville, Grayson and Loganville plus we are relaunching Graystone Church (I.e. a lot more work goes into a rocket launch than when it is simply orbiting), we are having a hard time keeping it all together. In my quiet times over the last couple of days, God has been reminding me that He is not only Creator but He is Sustainer of the universe (Hebrews 1:3). I’v been meditating on this short verse:
“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:17
In Christ ALL THINGS hold together. We know that Jesus holds together the universe and He is Sovereign over our world. But the verse says that Jesus holds together All THINGS.
So, if we want to keep it together, we need to allow Jesus to be the center of it. Jesus can hold together…our world, our govt., our country, our family, our marriage, our church, our business, our house, our teams, our schools, our friendships, our schedules, our bodies (mine appears to be falling apart), and even our minds.
If you’re having trouble keeping it all together, turn it over the Jesus. He is before all things (He is greater than all things.) and in Him ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER!
