Lately, I have found myself camping out in the book of
Not the easiest book to read, but I have been reminded that:
Great food, Great ambiance, and Great Conversations,
A fun night out with friends at the Diamond,
are just bonuses in this life!!!
But at times happiness fades, smiles can turn into frowns, excitement burns out and laughter can lead to tears.
I am not sustained by those things above, nor am I defined by them.
Yes, I enjoy them immensely, and I am filled with gratitude that my life is showered with such "bonuses."
But apart from Christ, apart from His unconditional love, apart from my life bringing him glory and praise, these bonus and all of the others that have come and gone are meaningless.
And chasing after them alone to satisfy my life, is like chasing after the wind.
