If you are a “Facebooker,” you may have seen recently that they took away the “Sync Photos” function. This automatically syncs your phones pictures to a special album in your Facebook, that only you can access through your Facebook account.
Facebook added a feature called “Moments.” Moments is actually a really cool app. It sets up your photos by date, all the photos you have taken with your phone and all the pictures that are synced to your Facebook account. You can do a lot of cool things out of it. For all you “Facebookers” and smart phone owners – you should check it out!
Why do I spend 2 minutes of your time advertising Facebook and Moments? Simple––I want to ask you this question:
“How many moments in your life started off as inspirational, and then turned mundane?”
I used to live in Cape Cod. What I wouldn’t do for a trip to the beach just one more time, to sit in a chair or on a blanket with my family gazing up at the canvas in the sky that God would paint each day around 8:30 on a cool late August evening. You see there were times when we were there that the kids were ready to go home, the mosquitos were biting, the sand was starting to irritate, or I simply was too tired. Now I say I would not let any of those “Moment” distractors––distract me.
This is much like the moments where we find ourselves needing to hear God speak to us, or maybe sense His direction in our lives, or those moments where we want to run away and find a “fun, peaceful, or safe” place.
I leave you with this…
2 Cor. 4: 16 – 19, “16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
So, keep your eyes on the things that will last forever! Those Moments are eternal!
Until next time…
