Lest you think I’m complaining or whining about life in this country, I’m not! Yes, we are indeed blessed with an abundance of things and freedoms and opportunities. I am very thankful to be right where I am.
I just don’t want my vision to be limited to my earthly circumstances. I want to know–and have!–the hope and riches of my inheritance. I don’t want the abundance of everything we do enjoy to interfere with my relationship to the Almighty God.
(Wow. That’s a pretty amazing statement, isn’t it — That we made-of-dust humans can have a relationship with the Almighty!)
As the team who went to Haiti gave their report last Sunday, one young man recounted his conversation with a Haitian who said in parting, “We will pray for you.”
And what I’ve been thinking as I write this week is this:
Perhaps we here in the States are the ones who most need help and prayers as we seek to live in the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
