“It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink, and sex, and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.” -C.S. Lewis
I am slowly, but surely trekking my way through Deuteronomy currently, and am astounded by how big my God is. Often, I attempt to put God in a box to categorize Him with everything in else in my life. However, I am re-discovering that my God is the one who spoke existence into a void, who parted the Red Sea, who offered Himself as atonement for the reconciliation of mankind’s sins.
He is not big, He is infinite. He has the capacity, and the will to use my life radically. I am beginning to recognize this, and pray big. Pray to be used, to make our lived something.
