Made For Eternity:
Greg Laurie and Stephen Curtis Chapman
As I write this, I’m listening to SC Chapman’s album, Beauty Will Rise. Honestly, I trust His heart for the Lord, I know he has been to the edge. You see, as Christians, we envision eternity. We live with it as part of our theology. Until. . .theology is not enough. . .
For some of us, a time comes in our journey, when the razor sharp edge of pain moves us to that edge of eternity. Our heart strings are cut to release us past the present. We flow into a love that bleeds us forward. Profuse pain pulses us beyond the moment into. . . the embrace of eternity that breaks our fatal fall. We experience the eternity for which we are made.
We are never the same, once the pain has breeched into the eternal essence of our Lord.
Out of the ashes beauty will rise. One petal at a time. . .
