Today I’m sharing with you one of my very favourite quotes, that reflects where I want my heart to be.
“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say “do it again!” And the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity to make all daisies appear alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never grown tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite for infancy: for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
~G. K. Chesterton
I want to be continually ok with “again” because that is the stuff life is made of. It takes a seeming eternity of monotonous “agains” to reach the fulfillment of a dream. And to get to know our Father-God? A lifetime of daily “again” meetings in His Word and in His heart. To find God’s will? Do the daily “agains” and you will be there. Again.
