Hardeeville is just 5 miles into SC from Georgia so we didn't really see anything of the state. My grandson was with me and commented "hm! it looks just like Florida so far, I don't even know I'm in another state", he said the same thing about Georgia.
I giggled and asked him what he expected? "I don't know, I wanted to feel like, I had ventured somewhere, I thought everything would be different, I didn't even get to see a mountain, huh!" Well, I said, just more pines and grass and vines, like Florida, sorry buddy!
I guess sometimes we expect the same "shock 'n awe" in our spiritual life when we take new steps and grow in new directions.
But, all day - every day should be designated as His and we should never expect any personal satisfaction, knowing that self gratification is a self centered need. We enjoy attention it's in our nature, so controlling that need can require a bit of attention from all of us.
Thus said the Lord:
Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom;
Let not the strong man glory in his strength;
Let not the rich man glory in his riches,
But only in this should one glory:
In his earnest devotion to Me.
For I the Lord act with kindness,
Justice, and equity in the world;For in these I delight - declares the Lord.
