Mud Pies

I recently read the following quote from C S Lewis.

Our lord finds our desires not too strong but too weak. We are half hearted creatures fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us. Like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday by the sea.

Jesus said he came to give us an incredible life. Somehow I don't think I have experienced a fraction of what God has in store for me. Someone once said the only difference between a rut and a grave was the depth. I am asking myself what has become to comfortable for me? Am I settling for a level of growth that is so far below where God wants me to go?

I can't even imagine what this abundant incredible life is that God has in store. What challenges lie in wait. What changes I need to make. Where the journey will take me but I am up for the journey.

God help me not to settle for the mundane, messing about with mud pies when you have so many surprises in store.
