Look at Your Life Through Heaven’s Eyes

 “16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16-19

What better reminder is this in times of crazy college life? He is my strength for his love is infinitely larger that I can imagine. That I can lean on him anytime. My God is a God of immeasurably more. The dictionary states that immeasurably means incapable of being measured, limitless, especially by virtue of great size. He is limitless where I am limited, which is a great relief. College brings about one of the biggest tests on our self-confidence and self-worth, but when my self-worth is in Christ because the Holy Spirit is in me, I can relax. I know he will lead me through his perfect plan. I have no individual identity that is totally mine. I have an identity chosen, utilized, and molded by my Lord to fit his master plan. I would rather be a piece in a fantastic masterpiece than be the grand designer of some amateur work. To quote one of my most favorite movies, I must “look at my life through Heaven’s eyes” for only the Lord knows my importance. I am excited to see the role I shall play.
