Ponderables for me today……inthequiet….ponderables……..

C S Lewis: "We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about 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 the 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

Hinds Feet in High Places:
The awful glimpse down into the abyss of an existence without him had so staggered and appalled her heart that she felt she could never be quite the same again. However, it had opened her eyes to the fact that right down in the depths of her own heart she really had one passionate desire, not for the things which the Shepherd had promised, but for himself. All she wanted was to be allowed to follow him forever.

Larry Crabb:
The point of the journey is to want what God wants more than anything.

Wow! all worth thinking on for a while...what an insight CS Lewis had...how easily some settle..their eyes have not been opened to truth, to joy...
I for one cannot imagine life or existence without HIM...would that every believer would hunger after Him for Himself and not for what He can do for us...
