The Cross has the final word.

Tomorrow morning, we will drop our only daughter off for her first semester of college. As pleased as we are about her choice of learning institutions,  The dad in me is scared to death.  I know, I’m suppose to rejoice in my sufferings (because the things of today are small potatoes compared to the joy that’s coming) but inside I’m terrified!

Come on, I am about to let my only child walk out into the real world. What if something bad happens, what if she needs us???

The Cross has the final word.

The cross has the final word.
Sorrow may come in the darkest night,
But the cross has the final word.
There’s nothing stronger, nothing higher,
There’s nothing greater than the name of Jesus!
All the honor, all the power,
All the glory to the name of Jesus!
The cross has the final word.
The cross has the final word.
Evil may put up its strongest fight,
But the cross has the final word.
As I was driving home tonight, all these thoughts spinning in my head. I noticed the chorus of the song on the radio. The words are above.
As hard as it is for me to to remember sometimes, Jesus already has it under control. I need to stop worrying about things I cant change. As a follower of Christ my life (And my daughter’s) has already been purchased by the blood of Jesus!
Driving off and leaving her behind may seem tough to me, But I rest knowing that he has a big plan for her life too,
Sometimes as human beings I think we try to make decisions in life for God, instead of being content with his decisions, and remembering they have our best intentions in mind. Even when life feels really tough.
Paul the Apostle reminds us of this. Check out his words about hard times to the Corinthian Church
*This should be familiar if you were with us in church on Sunday…
2 Corinthians 4:17-18(NLT)
17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
So basically, instead of worrying about my child, I should remember that this life is temporary, and ask God to do amazing things through her in this new season.
Then, Let her Go.
Yep, it’s tough. But that’s what I’m gonna do.
The Cross has the Final Word.
What do you think??
Till next week,
PJ.
