The first thirty years of My life down on earth may have seemed
insignificant to some people.
Many of your years seem unimportant and without relevance.
Yet, when you do as I ask, your work has eternal value.
Jesus often withdrew from the crowds to find a place to pray. We were told this was one of the “lonely” places where He prayed. While we were there we had a sandwich on the rocks bordering the Sea of Galilee. In my mind, I tried to picture Christ walking there and finding a place to pray to his Father in heaven. I did feel his presence!
There are many times in our lives where it seems we toil at our jobs not really seeing much accomplished of eternal value. I don’t think Jesus felt that way as he worked as a carpenter in his earthly father’s shop. He was willing to wait until God, his heavenly Father would show Him when He was to start speaking, healing and doing miracles. He talked daily to his Father, similarly to us praying for wisdom and obedience in our lives. There is a time and place for everything in our lives. We want to take the time and listen!
