I Will Carry You
“It is hard to discover that the cheap imitation of satisfaction we have grown accustomed to is woefully unrepresentative of what awaits us. It is not easy to think of it that way, even for me. In some ways I wish I could go back to the place where the cotton candy and parades distracted me. In other ways, I am relieved to be on this side of life, where I have come to terms (as much as I can) with the fact that in this life, on this earth, I am going to hunger.
It will not be satisfied. It cannot be. And when the wind blows through my soul and tempts me to despair over the lot I have been given, I cling to the truth that the Lord has something better for me. It won’t always be like this. You will know Him fully one day, and all the hurts that consume you in this moment will vanish and be forgotten. I know it sounds crazy. I guess it’s crazy to think that a God could love us so much that He would want to create a place to be with Him eternally, where we can revel in His perfection and rest in true peace.”
