Fencing out the Future

Soul Snack 18/14 ... There is a fence before me. It fills my vision and circumnavigates all that I would do. It is very high and ever so difficult to peer over.

This fence is the boundary of my today. It prevents me from seeing all my tomorrows. Its mirror-like finish reflects back to me all the enticing glory of this earth. The fence is so high, so shiny, indeed so distracting, that it obscures the splendor of heaven completely from my sight. It forces me to keep my eyes low.

The fence hems me in that I may only ever see today, and even neglect to enquire about tomorrow.

The only way I have learned to see over this fence is upon my knees. I then close my eyes, and elevate my heart

There awaits a paradise beyond all the glories of earth. It is populated alone by crown wearers, who have also become glory owners.

And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. (1 Peter 5:4)

To see over this fence, fold your knees to the ground and lock your closed eyes upon an unfading crown. It is ready for you now.

Today's Soul Snippet:

The road to happiness is paved with faithfulness in hardship.
