"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that other country and to help others to do the same." ~ C.S Lewis
I was glad to have found quotes from C.S. Lewis which really reflected my own experiences, thoughts and sentiments about God. This one (up there) is one of my favourite ones so I decided to share it with you :)
It is Sunday today and fellowshipping with the saints was just lovely, the message this morning indeed was for me and I'm sure each one of us received our portion. Also, all the songs that were sung today were my favourites! (wink, hahaha...), so I don't have any complaints at all.
I was blessed and was full of joy after having a conversation with my dear friend Christine. We talked about a lot of things and sharing the goodness of the Lord between us was just beautiful... we found out that God was ministering the same things to us and I am not surprised, for the same Spirit is in us. Although that is a given that does not take away the thrill of discovering that the Lord Jesus is breaking the same bread to His children, amen. How lovely really, the Lord is good.
Indeed, He is ministering mightily amongst us- individually and personally and that is how He always work. As I always say, the reality of God remains to be another man's experience unless we go through it ourselves, and believe me friend- God has an appointed time for everyone and everything. He will come to you and to me as oft as He sees it fit, He will break the bread in front of our eyes and we will see. So, do not lose hope even if it seems like forever because God is never late (I know you've heard that before but it is true)...and when your time comes, I pray you have an open heart, a self-will that has been cast down and a soul that truly desire to be one with it's maker.
I have not posted as often as before and I have a feeling I won't blog as much here anymore, only when God leads me to....because when it's all been said and done my dear, dear friend- the truth and the decision that some of you might have tried to avoid in their life or lifetime, will come back to stare at you in the face. There is no getting round it, much less denying it.
There is a God, He is real and when you come to Him face to face, there is only one question- will you accept Him or will you reject Christ?
....like I always say, the end of all the roads that we take in this life, lead to One only, and you have to answer for the life that was given to you. Yes, the flesh might clamor and strongly will it clamor for control and we can just give in to every carnal whim or ambition- even though in the back of our minds, we know- YOU KNOW, that to continually give in to the world's ways means we reject God and this causes separation from Jesus Christ...we are forfeiting our birthright and inheritance to all things eternal.
And if ever there is an advice I could give you, albeit unsolicited, that is to never rely or trust the carnal mind because it is finite. All the science put together in this world amounts to nothing in God's sight. It's mere rubbish. Even science admits that everything is but a theory, a philosophy of trying to comprehend the material world
BUT Jesus Christ is the true fount of revelation and knowledge, He is the ONLY source of truth. So, why hesitate?
There is a severe judgement coming and there is very little time left...let us not ignore His call. Draw near to Him and He will draw nigh unto you- that is God's promise and His promises he always keep. Trust only in God, for He is your maker.
God bless you my friend.
