Stolen from Patheos: the Christian Portal, this morning. I believe this is so true. Finding that God is already present, and learning to trust all the promises God makes to us about the joy of living this life, is what makes life worth living.
“The Christian life is not about pleasing God the finger-shaker and judge. It is not about believing now or being good now for the sake of heaven later. It is about entering a relationship in the present that begins to change everything now. Spirituality is about this process: the opening of the heart to the God who is already here.” ~ Marcus Borg
