"I designed you to desire Me... the tugs of divinity (are) within you. I made you in My Image, and I hid heaven in your heart. Your yearning for Me is a form of homesickness: longing for your true home in heaven." (211)
Years ago, during a bible study on heaven, a lawyer's wife told me that life was so good, things were going so well, she was so happy that she really wasn't looking forward to heaven. Although, she certainly did not want the option of hell... she was totally happy for life to stay just like it was!
Which turned our discussion a whole different direction...what are the things that cause us to look forward to heaven? As we answered that question...we recognized that if we get too comfortable, we can often get too distracted with earthly, material things and miss the significance of the eternal things!
While I am grateful for blessings I experience in my daily life... I never want to loose my deep hunger for heaven.
Feeling the "tugs of divinity" deep in my heart...dmc
