The Fulfilled Cup

“Life apart from God is meaningless, but life with God at the center is full. It’s satisfying. It’s purposeful. It makes all the difference.”

“Right where I Am, God is.

All that I need I already have because the fullness of God

is right where I Am and ever shall it be so.”

 — Anonymous

“The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need…
   …My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
    all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
    forever.”

— Psalm 23:1,5b-6 (NLT)

The Truth About Forever

Everyone thinks that forever is simply the exaggeration of life here in this world. If forever is simply stated that way, how then should we live our lives?  Better yet,  ask ourselves, what is truly the truth about forever?

 

“Life can be long or short, it all depends on how you choose to live it. It’s like forever, always changing. for any of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you’d better make every second count. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, is this how you’d want to have spent it?”                                                                                           

                                                                                                                   —Sarah Dessen

“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? 

Is anything worth more than your soul?”

—Matthew 16:26 (NLT)

Our Desires is Our Undoing

One of the worst things that could ever happen to a man

is when God gives him over to his desires.

There are only two kinds of people in the end:

those who say to God, “Thy will be done,”

and those to whom God says, in the end, “Thy will be done.”

— C. S. Lewis, The Great Divorce

Never Think Twice About Coming Home

Very often what God first helps us towards is not the virtue itself

but just this power of always trying again.

— C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Commitment to God is not just working to be a holy man,

not just laboriously living life by His book.

Commitment to God is also tirelessly running back to His arms despite guilt or sorrow when one fails Him.

Useless

“The highest form of vanity is love of fame.”

—George Santayana

…and it’s utterly useless.

Praying: a platform to impress others?

“Prayer is a private act of devotion, not a public demonstration of piety.” – Charles Swindoll

“Pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”

– Matthew 6:6

Connect to our Father with words from our hearts privately,

not with those uncompassionate and excessive words repeated publicly.

Only YOU.

“Our fall was, has always been, and always will be, that we aren’t satisfied in God and what He gives. We hunger for something more, something other.” 

― Ann Voskamp

May we find satisfaction only in God. For in Him, we have everything we need and could ever imagine.
