What if every longing of our hearts was meant be fulfilled by God?
It would change the way we pursued him, wouldn't it?
It would make us want to chase after him with everything we have...
It would make us change the way we woke up in the morning...
The way we live...
The way we think...
The way we see the world around us...
It would change everything
...if we really believed that He is the answer.
I think it's true.
| Alleluia ! God is alive in your words. We poor deficient humans can not see the rose God grows for us by our rathers to play with throns. We pray our pious thoughts then sit back in an easy chair await his magical power. That magical power is the rose that perfumes our brain and mental powers to aid us to perform God's will for us. If a seed did not fall to the ground and die (meaning to germinate) it would not grow into that which it was meant to be.|

Then He would become more tangible than reality and more focused than hope. Of course, that isn't likely to happen as long as deity and life are kept in separate compartments; one to be lived and the other to be dryly reverenced. The day we paasionately live as if every breath were God will be the day we find Him. Until then, we remain the punchline of a joke we don't understand.|
Just my thoughts on how easily some problems are solved (or not).
