Further Up & Further In

One of my all time favorite literary moments is near the end of C.S. Lewis' "The Last Battle", from the Chronicles of Narnia. There is a moment when the remaining characters are finally heading up into the truer and better Narnia. Just when they thought that all had been made right was as it should be once again, they realize that there was so much more for them lying just ahead...just further up and further in.

At times I feel that I do the same thing in my own life. I forget, or often don't even realize that there is so much more of this life...of relationships...of eternity...of my Creator to experience and to enjoy. I tend to live in the Shadowlands...content to be where I am at, or thinking that I have somehow arrived at a good place...or the best place...or even the only place. I fail to see that there is so much more to experience and to enjoy if I would just press deeper...if I would just go a little further up and further in. That's how I want to live my life - always pursuing all of God has for me to do and to experience.
