Back To The Basics

By: Melissa Baker

As we start this new year, I am reminded of something we should all be aware of. In the middle of our busy lives, we forget sometimes that it is supposed to be all about God. We have work, church, our kids, our husbands, extra-curricular activities etc, and we make our lives all about us. It is so easy to get distracted by everything we have going on, that we forget to put our focus on God. The very first sentence in the Bible said that God was the beginning. He was the thing that started this life, the solar system, the universe and everything inside of it. God created Heaven and Earth, and we sometimes forget that.  We try so hard to define what life is all about when it is all about God, and it will always be about God. 

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
  Genesis‬ ‭1:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

God is the beginning and the end. He is the maker of all of us. God still sits on the throne. And it is up to us to acknowledge that and let Him take control. I have read that one of the best ways to understand something, is to go back to the basics. The basic foundation of our lives is God.  Sometimes we let life get the best of us, and slowly we start drifting away from God, and before we know it, we don’t even know Him anymore. So let’s start this new year off right! We need to make this life about the one who it is supposed to be about. Reading our Bible and praying to God daily is so important. We need to make God the focus and foundation of our lives, even more so than He already is. Let’s get back to the basics. Let’s go back to God!

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
Revelation‬ ‭22:13‬ ‭NIV
