Just a quick thought…
I wonder whether we will one day find, when the substance of our lives is boiled down, that those things we hoped for, longed for, settled for and wished we had, were but dross compared to what He had planned.
The things that matter most are the things that go with us when we depart this physical life – let’s not settle for material substitutes for glory. Believe for more. Believe that His “more,” really is more.
We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered to us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased. C.S. Lewis
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
