Rest in Your Salvation :: soul calm {11/31}

Cerro San Cristobal 029“It doesn’t effect your salvation.”

This is something my mom says often and I’m guessing it came from her mom.

But all these little things that we tend to stress out about aren’t really that important in the long run.

What college should I go to? It doesn’t effect your salvation.

What should I major in? It doesn’t effect your salvation.

Where should I work, live, eat, go to church, etc? It doesn’t effect your salvation.

How should I handle my kids, do my hair, dress, eat, live, be? More often than not, itΒ doesn’t effect your salvation.

The list could go on and on but after we make that major decision to accept Jesus as our savior everything else in life becomes more clear in that our final outcome will be the same, and less clear in that sometimes we just have to choose something without specific leading from God.

In life we get to keep putting one foot in front of the other, confident in our salvation.

So this week may we learn to rest in our salvation. May we continue walking forward and deciding things with a calm assurance that what we do matters less than we think it does. But, as we walk in the freedom of our salvation, may we also walk knowing the weight of our own footsteps in this world. Because, even as we are freed from the consequences of our sin, we are freed to live in bigger and bolder ways ofΒ change and empowerment.

Blessings on your week, dear friends.

I am blogging everyday this October on the theme of Soul Calm. I want to take the dust of the day
and sift it through my fingers. I want to see beauty, drink peace, and rest in calm assurance. Let the dust drift away, seen and unseen, beautiful, maybe, but not mine to keep. I hope it blesses you. You can find the collection of Soul Calm posts by clicking the button.

Find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, andΒ Goodreads!
