Eternity is set in our hearts

I follow David Burge (Iowahawk) on Twitter or on his blog and he is hilarious. He perfectly captures the crazy nut of today's news in witty soundbites on Twitter and in lengthy explosions of irony on his blog. Here are a few snippets:

"Occupy Oakland dispels rumors of violence by attacking news crew filming murder scene."
"I don't want Occupy closed down. I want it forced to keep going."
"We don't need to have a bigger voice in Washington. We need Washington to have a smaller voice in us."

The political news is crazy and bound to get crazier as the Presidential campaign heats up. The weather is nuts, the economy is depressed, the poor are getting poorer and the earthquakes just keep on coming. None of the above really matters. It is important to us now, but in the larger scheme of things, it is a gnat on the tail of an elephant, puny compared to the things that really matter. It doesn't matter and it won't matter because in the face of all that, we have this:

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." Ecclesiastes 3:11


'He has made everything beautiful in its time'. Babies, like babies. If you ever gazed on a sleeping baby you have seen beauty in its time. 'He has set eternity in our hearts', and if you are saved by grace and faith in Jesus, then you will experience eternity with Him, in joy. If you have not accepted Jesus as your savior then respond to that eternity in your heart, you know you're yearning, asking, seeking. 'No one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end'. No, I can't, and that is the beauty of it, the eternity of it. A mysterious, omnipotent God who is unfathomable yet places Himself in our hearts and makes everything beautiful. I am glad I know Him.
