I was struggling this last week thinking about people that are getting the big piece of life. On vacation in Cabo, we are definitely tasting the relaxation that comes with what people consider the good life. It is really hard to keep your perspective on what matters. Grandpa and I hiked around the hills and saw some amazing mansions yesterday. You know the feeling when someone gets the big piece of something you want, right? It would be pretty cool to have a house to share with people and I thought of how cool it would be to be able to invite people over to a house like that to enjoy our family. You guys are great and no matter where we live people just love your creativity and excitement for life. You are friendly and compassionate and take such good care of our guests. I’m proud of you.
The thing that hit me today was how much we have when God has us! No matter what wealth our family has or doesn’t have, Jesus is the big piece of life. I really believe it today. I read Psalm 73 this morning: “There is nothing on earth I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my PORTION forever.” I am not going to be envious of those who probably worked hard for the wealth they have. My portion of life’s pie is bigger than anything anyone could offer me. Don’t forget that when Jesus has your heart, you have the biggest piece and no one can take that from you.
