Look around: is this really all the reward you want from living the life before you? This world, in its brokenness displays beautiful moments. Nature proclaims the glory of the Lord. And though I find peace in the outdoors, I still know it is fallen. There is more than this mortal life.
And yet I find myself distracted, looking only into this life for answers to this life. It is the One who dwells in the heavens whose eternal reward I should seek. For it is He who knit me together, created plans for my life, and always works for my good.
Look up more than you look out, and you will experience life more than you ever hoped our dreamed.
