I am going to come full circle to the beginning of the week post on Memorial Day. We are so blessed to live in America. Really we are.
Because we have the freedoms we do, because many of us have the earthly riches we do, our earthly desires can be satisfied. And easily. We have shelter, we have food, we have clothes, we have technology. We have A LOT.
Because of where we live, we are able to let Jesus strengthen us. We are able to study His word and worship Him. (quick plug for the Bible study! Have you gone there yet? It starts June 1st!)
Because of where we live, we have the opportunity for series of small things that can shape and change our lives: jobs, children, marriages, churches, friends, moves, etc.
But even though living here in America can give us a lot. It will never satisfy every desire we have. Earthly things will never be enough. We can keep chasing those small series of things. We can keep desiring more earthly possessions. But it will never be enough.
Only God can satisfy the deepest of desires: to be wholly loved. WHOLLY LOVED. Wholly accepted. Wholly forgiven. And He opens His hand to us and offers it every moment of every day.
THAT is GREAT LOVE. That is a miracle.
I am so glad to have that! I am so glad to share that with you!
