We are all in that mode right now. Back to school has us running around frantically trying to tie up all the loose ends. We want to be ready. We want our kids to step through those doors on the first day confident that they have all the tools they need to learn and to be successful.
God feels the same way about us, but He isn’t frantic. Thank goodness He doesn’t wait until the last minute to take care of business. Currently pointing my finger at myself.
He knew us before we were formed in our mother’s womb. Every minute, every hour, every single day – God has His eyes on us. He has watched us grow up, mess up, love, fall apart, and learn all while preparing our hearts and minds for eternity with Him.
Preparing for the upcoming week is so important, but preparing for eternity – don’t let that slip through the cracks. As God is preparing Heaven for us, let’s prepare our hearts for him.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart: I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5
