Help us not to attach our heart to things that we can’t hold on to forever

“Absolute futility,” says the Teacher.  “Absolute futility. Everything is futile.”  What does a man gain for all his efforts he labors at under the sun?
—-Ecclesiastes 1:2-3 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Dearest Abba, Father, how wonderful are the works of Your hands! The heavens declare Your glory. The sun and the stars , the valleys and hills, the rivers and lakes, all declare Your wisdom and strength. In Your love You have given us life and days on this earth and the power to enjoy the beautiful things of this world and fruit of Your blessings. But, O Lord, grant us the wisdom to discern that things of this world are transient and soon passing. Help us not to attach our heart to things that we can’t hold on to forever. But help us to focus on You, the Source and the Sustainer of everything. Thank You, Yahweh- Adonai , that You have prepared an imperishable eternity with You on the other side. The very thought of spending my eternity beholding Your glory fills my heart with overflowing gladness. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Help me in the realty of Your sweetness, rest in Your arms, be one with You, and be comforted in the knowledge that You always watch over me. Through the grace of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
