A Perfect World…


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” (Elisabeth Elliot)

When I’m discontent, when I long for more, help me remember that it’s simply part of the wooing.

May I not long for the things of this world and settle for its pleasures. May this world be to me only a signal, a gesture of what is to come.

Lure me, call me, Father, to You and Your invisible Kingdom.

May I find what I so keenly long for only in You.
