How do I keep my eye on the big picture? Here’s something that I read just this morning as I spent some time with God:
I have seen the burden God has laid on men. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God.
That bit about everything being beautiful in its time gets me; especially in this season of my life.
