When my days on earth are over, a joy and contentment beyond description will be mine.
This fact compels me day after day to live a life more pleasing to God.
I’m not perfect, but I rejoice that God’s gracious power and patience continues stirring me — and steering me — toward that goal.
You see, no matter what disappointments I encounter in this life — and there have been many — they pale in comparison to the reward awaiting me in the next life.
This is the magnet of mercy that draws me with a power greater than the lies of the world.
Psalm 61:4 concisely states the desire of my heart:
“Let me live forever in Your sanctuary, safe beneath the shelter of Your wings!” (Psalm 61:4)
I pray that this is your desire as well.
Who knows? Perhaps we’ll be side by side under His wings.
I’d like that.
As always, I love you
