Our Lives are like Circles, Explains Lisa Deam (Sermon Resources)

"One Sunday, at the English-speaking church I attended while living and researching in Brussels, Belgium, the pastor said in his sermon that our lives are like circles. We all want the circle of our life to be perfectly round; no one wants a squashed, lopsided one. So we draw and redraw the outline of our circle. We smooth it out here, only to find that it’s bulging on the other side. We rush to fix it, but now it’s caving in somewhere else. We run frantically around and around the circle, unable to keep the outline round and smooth.  In the meantime, the center of the circle doesn’t move at all. It is the only fixed point, the only source of stability in our collapsing world. The center of our circle is, of course, Christ Jesus. We should fix our eyes on the center, not the circumference."
