Don't Let Your Circumstances Eclipse the Son!

Today is an exciting day as the United States experiences a rare total eclipse of the sun. The last total eclipse was in 1979, the next one will be in 2023. Here in Charleston we will see about a 90% of the sun’s light blocked by the moon. Many are driving hundreds of miles to get the full experience.

When we think of our relatively small moon blocking the massive brilliance of the sun from our view, it points us to consider how the trials and circumstances of daily life can eclipse our view of the glories of Christ – of who He is and all that He has done for us. The writer of Hebrews reminds us to "fix our eyes on Jesus" in the face of the challenges and trials of life.

This will be the topic of our interim Bible study this week at the West Virginia state capitol. The last several months have been quite challenging at the statehouse. Please pray that our time of fellowship, prayer, and Bible study with our leaders will be an encouraging time.
