What Shall It Be?

What does a person need – really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense, and we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention for the sheer idiocy of the charade.

The years thunder by, the dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed.

Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life? ”

― Sterling Hayden


Quote of the Day

“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

This verse is amazing, comforting and encouraging, but definitely not easy to adhere to especially in those dark and unknown times.  But, God knows best.  He always knows best and His plan is far better and immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine.  So, here we are.  We wait and pray.  And while we wait and pray we put all our eggs in His basket.  He will certainly deliver something perfect and glorious and far better than anything our small meager minds are currently imagining.
