-Where to Start-

Where to start - Where to end
The chapter has closed
The book has just begun
We conquer the hill
To reach the mountain
Our hearts find happiness
But never satisfaction
We always want more
Yearn for what we do not have
But how rarely we see
What a promise has been said
He'll supply all of our needs
No more - No less
So why, with this promise
Can we not see beyond the mess
Where to start - Our beginning 
Given life and breath
Where to end - The story untold
Easily we assume finished at death
We fail to remember the mountain
We allow the chapter to be the book
This life is not the end
But merely the stepping stone to a life with no end
If you seek satisfaction - Seek it in Christ
If you yearn for what you don't have - Yearn for what's eternally in store

Let not the life be the end 
Our momentary dreams and desire
Let nothing of this world be our hearts yearning
For our God is an all-consuming fire

Hebrews 12:28-29, "Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire."
