"The Glory of God is man fully alive." -Saint Irenaeus

Really? seriously? But I have work to do, lesson plans to prepare, things to get to, tv to watch, messages to call back, emails to return, future to plan, finances to secure, basement to finish, office to clean, wife to support, friends to care for, kids to raise, paperwork to complete, wokout plan to execute, car to wash, closet to clean, tommorrow to worry about, events to plan, house church to prepare, grandmother to visit, fantasy football to obsess over, people to please, self to feel important, ego to satisfy, hunger to curve, void to fill etc. etc. etc.

Is the Kingdom really about today and I'm just flat missing it? Fully alive. Sounds like a dream, and dreams do come true, sometimes.

"I am confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." Psalm 27:13

Look for the goodness of the Lord today and let it outnumber your to-do list.
