eternity… it’s planted in your heart…

You ever wonder why…? you get so upset when something wears out…? breaks down…? You just don’t understand why things don’t last…?
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds…
Ecclesiastes 3:11 Amp
God has made everything beautiful in its time…
yet He planted eternity in the hearts of men…

Everything has an expiration date…
People only have one because of sin… which leads to death…

He created us in His image…
He created us for eternity…

This dichotomy… results in frustration…
it’s a reminder things are not as they should be…
we don’t belong in this broken world…

He graciously made a Way…
for us to return to Him… eternally…
His name is Jesus…

The next time something favorite breaks down…

the hole in the just right jeans…
the refrigerator just 15 years old…
the knees that won’t run anymore…
the hair that ends up on the floor…
recognize the truth…

There is an eternity to be had…
it’s just not here…
in this body…
or this world…
A new one’s coming…
