“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” (Elisabeth Elliot)
When I’m discontent, when I long for more, help me remember that it’s simply part of the wooing.
May I not long for the things of this world and settle for its pleasures.
Lure me, call me, Father, to You and Your invisible Kingdom.
May I find what I so keenly long for only in You.
Linking up today with Michelle at Graceful for Hear it on Sunday, Use it on Monday.
