We have so many talented writers in our KGF church family. We'd love to share more of their thoughts via our blog. If you know of someone worth reading, let us know. Here's our friend, Tara Wiens, on some great New Year's thoughts on true peace.
I desire things in this life.
I want big superficial things like a gorgeous house 5 miles outside the city with so many rooms I can have company for days, money so I can travel whenever I want and take whomever I want with me. A Ford raptor truck (love u Kev), a camper.. No wait, a motorhome, a house in Hawaii. Weekly pedicures, a robotic chef, maid and masseuse.
Realistically, I want a new kitchen, crown molding in every room, new hard wood flooring, a new washer and dryer, a new car and a pool.
Sooo Superficial. None of this matters. But, I'm leading into something. Something gooood:-)
I also desire not so superficial things like more babies, freedom for people still living in slavery (the sex trade specifically), behaved children and homes for every orphan. Maybe you desire things like that, or maybe you desire love from another person, more loving spouse or freedom from past pain.
Those superficial things are not wrong in and of themselves, but our desire for these things and even the good desires uncovers something else. Something about every human being that has ever lived. A deep longing we all have,
And I would also add, for LOVE
