“A man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things he possesses”


If only we gave that more than lip service it would solve all this world’s problems. We know it to be true, yet still we are tricked into thinking this thing or that thing will make us happier.  The times of true infinite joy, joy that pulsates through our whole being, joy greater than orgasm, greater even than being in love, comes only when naked, alone, without pride or pretence we stand in God’s presence and glimpse His overwhelming love for us, personally. Then our eyes open, we see the infinite glory of His creation, the diversity of the ultimate artist, the father who will make everything right, the lover who loves us beyond reason. Our hearts burst in thankfulness, fulfilment and things… what are things?… dust and ashes…

  1. Hence the quote, “straight is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life”. He never said it would be easy but it’s oh so very worth it. i wish all could feel the joy I have in living, but then they’d probably also have to go through the dark places and dispair I did to appreciate it. Happy living !
