But WHY? (...and I know that all the non-campers out there, don't get that--just pretend you are on your dream vacation.)
My internal tantrum began. Why can't I go back to the real world and take the best of my relaxed vacation with me? How do I keep the stress of life from getting 'on me'?
Go away stress! I mentally flicked him off my shoulder like an unwelcome stink bug and voiced my thoughts aloud. "Why do I always feel it's never enough?"
Perhaps that's one awesome thing about heaven we will love. I think it will be a place with God where we'll always have enough; a place of endless satisfaction. I don't mean things. I mean that place in our soul and spirit, where we just need to rest and fill up.
Until then, I will thirst. I will hunger. I will work. I will see in part. How else will I learn to seek Him for my satisfaction, for rest, food, filling, and vision?
Isaiah 55: 1-3
“Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love promised to David.
Have you taken a refreshing vacation?
How do you make relaxation last?
I pray you can find 'the richest of fare'.
