Gospel Nugget for today . . . .
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 up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible kingdom where we will certainly find what we do keenly long for. Running aground, then is not the end of the world. Accepting the reality of painful times while readying yourself to encounter them actually puts you at the starting block of great adventure in seeing God's omnipotent hand work wondrously in your adversity.
