Soaring Hearts

God has appointed both days of prosperity and adversity (Ecc 7:14).

That is good news. Whatever the difficulty we are facing will be resolved in God’s timing and for his glory. We will again rejoice, going to his house to sing his praise (Psalm 122:1).

Because our bodies grow tired and we become weary, our praise tends to be limited. Our habitual focus on this life serves to weigh down our hearts. But when we choose to concentrate on the eternal weight of glory, our spirits can soar with the eagles and our mouths be filled with his praise (2 Corinthians 10:5).
