“Good things as well as bad, you know, are caught by a kind of infection. If you want to get warm you must stand near the fire: if you want to be wet you must get into the water. If you want joy, power, peace, eternal life, you must get close to, or even into, the thing that has them. They are not a sort of prize which God could, if He chose, just hand out to anyone. They are a great fountain of energy and beauty spurting up at the very centre of reality.”
—C.S. Lewis in
My prayer this week: You are my reality, God! Don’t let me forget it. I praise you for your goodness, for your favor in my life, for your grace, and for the blessed assurance that Jesus is mine. Keep me focused on your plans for me and for this path I’m on. I pray you’ll continue to be the center of my being, always.
