Back to the Future

Indeed, there is no middle ground between these two: either the world must become worthless to us or hold us bound by intemperate love of it. Accordingly, if we have any concern for eternity, we must strive diligently to strike off these evil fetters.
John Calvin - Institutes of The Christian Religion: 3.9.2

I found this a good reminder. Whenever we get too hung up in current events, we need to remember that this is all reserved for fire (2 Peter 3:7), that all this will flee (Revelation 20:11). While we cannot ignore our present circumstances, we cannot obsess on them.

God is sovereign, He is in control.

It is all going according to plan.

Just because you do not like it, doesn't mean it isn't.

Time for me to get back to the future and give Him thanks.
