Boracay and BeyondFriday, April 20, 2012
What were the things that romanced your heart? Every song you love, every memory you cherish, every moment that has moved you, has been given to you from the One who has been pursuing you from your first breath in order to win your heart.
He knows what takes your breath away, knows what makes your heart beat faster. I hope we don't miss God's notes simply because we have shut our hearts down in order to endure the pain of life.
God yearns to share a life of beauty, intimacy and an adventure with us. This world was made for romance-- the oceans, beaches, the sunset, the music, and lush green trees. Life changes so dramatically when romance comes into our lives. it also changes dramatically when we discover that in God too, there's a great romance.
- Stasi Eldredge, Captivating
I tell you, this is more than just "summer fun". More than just a holiday spent on a very beautiful place. This is not even the source of happiness and joy. This can't be derived to inner peace. At the end of the day, it's still God that fills our hearts with so much delight. Everyone can just pay a trip for Boracay. But it's my hope that you do not miss out that priceless and infinite joy and happiness God has for you!
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart...I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.Ecclesiastes 3:12-13
"Your LOVE is better than life." Ps. 63:3
