23.3.11

nothing better





"He has overcome the world.
So take heart,
keep on, fight the good fight,
pray continuously,
and do not grow weary.
There is nothing better than
giving up everything
and stepping into a passionate love relationship with God,
the God of the universe
who made galaxies,
leaves,
laughter,
and me and you."

This is absolutely beautiful... the quote and the picture.

I love this part especially:

"Giving up everything and stepping into a passionate love relationship with God..."

Often someone might feel as if they've lost everything in the natural world - when in reality, they've gained everything in the spiritual realm because the situation caused them to gain a relationship with their Creator. And that's the greatest gain of all.
