word for the day: beyond
i can't help but wonder how a human being can have so many deep desires and plans on his heart and somehow even begin to scratch the surface of them in a mere 70-80 years.
a wise woman i know once told me that the callings of God were eternal. that sometimes a prophetic word may not be fulfilled at all on this side of eternity - the prophesy might be saved for the crossing over.
i still ponder those words as they come back at key times of questioning. but what about ____? arises to my mind often. the desire to understand how to fit so much life into so little time.
but what if the answer does lie beyond the time i can see right now?
what if our true calling isn't even unlocked until the beyond?
for God cannot lie. if He said it, He will do it.
the beautiful mess that we live in may not look a bit like what we envision and yet...
and yet He is faithful.
His mercies are new.
we have a living hope. we serve a risen Lord. and we will rise too.
and when we step into that which is beyond what we are in today, then we shall fully understand in the looking back why He wanted to wait and work it in us deeply - because today really isn't all we have.
