Aiming high

A quote from C.S. Lewis came to me again a couple of different ways recently. “Aim at Heaven, and you will get earth ‘thrown in’: aim at earth, and you will get neither.” How often do we find we “aim at earth” and simply settle for what is, rather than having what the Apostle Paul wrote about, the “exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). It’s easy to find ourselves in a spiraling pattern of acceptance not realizing what we are relinquishing in the process. I’m not saying that if we do this, we will not have troubles. We will. What I mean is that are eyes are on Jesus despite the sorrows and grief of this life. Our hearts continue to long for God and what only He can do. Again, what we gain is included in this Amplified version of Ephesians 3:20 “superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams).” The Lewis quote above appears in a chapter on hope
