I was thinking of love and joy and peace and pain today. Even when things seem to be going wonderfully, and even the people closest to you assume that you 'have it all together' there is ever an underlying pain. That one black thread that weaves it's way never ending through the tapestry of our lives. It must be sin. We may be justified, but our sanctification is in progress, and that black thread of sin that runs through our lives will never completely dissolve until we are glorified with Him. Some days the longing in my soul for Heaven is almost overpowering. I see how one might commit suicide if they didn't believe that their life had a purpose. I know it is wicked to wish for death, but is it wicked to wish for life with my Saviour? That I might be given the spirit of patience that I lack. That I might patiently await my time, not wasting the life I now live in this mortal body. Oh, wretched girl that I am! I wish to be delivered from this body of death to live forever with my Saviour, but perfect patience is long in coming. Time, it sometimes passes so quickly, but ever so slowly. May I live this life to my full potential, and may I be content with the time and opportunities I have been given on this earth. Therefore when my time does come, it will be all the sweeter.
