Eternal Hearts

The last two days we have focused on the fact that God has given us tasks to accomplish and that he will finish them through us. With the same breath the author says God puts “eternity in (our) hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end” (Ecc 3:11).

You can recognize the eternity set in your heart in the longing you have for things to make sense, for the pieces of the puzzle to be put together and your desire to see his glory. But he has called us to wait actively and patiently to see what he is accomplishing.

Some say we will not care about asking God the “whys” when we get to heaven. But I believe that those “whys” will come together in a work of art that will bring shouts of praise and worship to God for the intricacies of his designs in our lives.
