He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Overshadow



While ironing this evening I realized I continue to think about and focus on a difficult person in my life.  I’ve been more focused on the person than on God. 

I’ve let this person eclipse and overshadow and what God is able to do in my situation, including dealing with people who are too difficult for me to handle.  They are not too much for Him.

If perchance God continues to allow this person to misbehave, He will give me the wisdom on how to respond, the grace to respond with grace, even when it’s undeserved, just like He does with me.

More than anything, I need to be fully focused on the Lord, not my circumstances or people…but God.  May God overshadow all that concerns me today.
