Look there, not here…

Children have this amazing ability to draw something like this and not experience any angst in their soul over it.  Raining here, sunny there.  O.k. then!        O Lord,  would You in Your grace and mercy grow us into seeing the big picture as a child can?

Col.  1:5   The hope which is laid up for you  in heaven…

“Our  hope in Christ for the future is the mainspring  and mainstay of our joy here.

It will animate our hearts to think often of heaven,

for all that we can desire is  promised there.

We are  always in the  field of battle; we are so tempted within, and

so molested by foes without,  that we have little or no peace;

BUT  IN  HEAVEN we shall enjoy the victory.

Here sin is a  constant grief to us,

But THERE we  shall be perfectly holy…

Charles Spurgeon
