Looking Forward to It


What keeps you motivated through the slog that is daily life? Through the daily temptations, and sometimes the cycles of sin, guilt, and forgiveness to try holiness again, what keeps you going and gives you hope?

For me, it is this promise of heaven. Not all the time, not everyday, but when I have a chance to think and remember, it is this. We were born for more than this world can offer. We were born for eternity. So while the daily grind grinds me down, I have only to remember why I am here, how I am being purified and refined for a greater destination.

Yeah, it’s high-minded and “pie-in-the-sky”, but a day is coming when it won’t be hope, but real. That will be a good day.
