We would all love to be done. Finishing always gives us a sense of accomplishment, of peace, of satisfaction. However, finishing also brings about a sense of loss. "Now what do I do?". God has given us the gift of life and a huge part of that gift is that it is never truly "complete". We are always working toward something bigger and better than our current self. What a blessing to have a ice cream sundae with no bottom. We don't need to rush through it or wish we had more. We can take our time, enjoy every bite and know there is more tomorrow.
Lord, help me to realize that You made life a marathon and not a sprint for a specific purpose that that purpose must be appreciated and not seen as undesirable.
