Our Secular and Sacred lives are one

Colossians  1:16-17  For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things were created through him and for him.  17  And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.   

Note the words:  How    - Created
                          Where  - in heaven
                                        on earth 
                           Who    - by HIM, (Jesus Christ) through HIM. in HIM
                           What   - All things  
                           Why    - for HIM               
                           When  - Genesis chapter 1  In the beginning

We do not have a secular life and a spiritual life separate from each other.  The LORD God Almighty, (through his Son Jesus Christ) is in all things, from beginning to the end (Revelation 1:8)

It is therefore important for us to understand everything about us, and in all of creation,  is known to our LORD and creator and it is ALL important to him.  

We sometimes think when things come our way that hurt and destroy even, it is because God doesn't care or is not able to protect us.  This is because we, as finite beings, do not have all knowledge and understanding.  But God is there and does care and will deal with all things appropriately in His divine time.  

We are called to love and trust Him.     
Not afraid
