Striving

If your Earthly life was over ... now, could you run into Jesus' arms completely satisfied with everything you have done thus far ?
One of my recent longings has been to abide at that level of assurance. I don't mean we should stop building the Kingdom or anything, but that alongside
running the race we would know an abiding presence that quenches striving.
I think this kind of assurance is a gift when we abide.

amen. i think i struggle with the opposite. like i abide alot and don't build. feel like a slacker follower. just like him as my best friend. i mean i've had seasons of building but more hanging out with God.
