Eternity and More…
Several years ago I was sitting with a person who had spoken faith in my life on numerous occasions. I sat and listened as they explained to me the difference between them and me. They told me that all they wanted from their walk with God was eternity. They had no desire greater than getting into heaven. I sat there dumbfounded. I couldn't relate to them at all. I tried not to have any judgement in my heart, for they were sharing their honest heart after all. But my God is everything to me. As far as I am concerned He is my every breath and the reason I breath. When you draw close to God he takes your breath away with beauty, peace and love. In his presence is the only place I have ever felt complete. I knew in my heart, as I listened, that I wanted to gain eternity but I wanted to get there and have a slew of fruit and souls with me and to here the words, "Well done good and faithful servant." I want to remember the forgotten. I want to accept the Unacceptsble. I want to welcome into my heart the rejected. I want my life to be impactful for Him...no matter how He chooses to present it.
The righteous shall live by faith...
For without faith it is impossible to please God. How about you? If you feel the same way I do you may sometimes feel ineffective at your efforts to make a positive difference for others. It may feel like you are not making an impactful difference, but you are. Keep doing what God asks of you and through your faithfulness His faithfulness will shine through. He will do great works in you and through you. ~Nicole
And, "But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back."
