“Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”–Psalms 37:4 You never know what a day may hold. Life has a way of changing, and not everything is pleasant. All of us tend resent these intrusions into our life–we prefer comfort and ease. In this ever changing world it would do us good to remember these words by Jonathan Edwards: The enjoyment of God is the only happiness
with which our souls can be satisfied.
To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better
than the most pleasant accommodations here on earth.
Earthly fathers and mothers, husbands, wives,
children and earthly friends, are all ‘shadows’.
But God is the ‘substance’.
All earthly delights are but ‘scattered beams’.
But God is the sun.
All earthly delights are but ‘streams’.
But God is the ocean.
