The beauty and grandeur of life is this simple; God is calling you to an intimate relationship with him. He who is almighty, all powerful and all knowing invites you to walk “hand in hand” with him through your life. There is no thought you have, no suffering you endure, no confusion you feel and no happiness that you experience that is not important to God.
Could anything be better than this? Even when all the things of this world grow old and fade away your relationship with God continues to grow and increase. It is the one thing that will not disappoint you and prohibit you from thinking that you are alone in this world.
No matter where you travel in life, no matter how many friends you have, how much money you make or how influential you are, you can never experience anything better than what you already have; this profound invitation from God to a deeper union with him. This fact alone makes life worth living to the fullest.
God bless you,
