He Has Set Eternity In Our Hearts

2330092285_2e1ceecd60_z“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
-Ecclesiastes 3:11

We are in the season of Easter and I love this verse from Ecclesiastes. God has set a desire to know the future and a wonder of time, of eternity into our hearts. We want to know the mysteries of creation, the future of all things, and see what God will do. That is why the victory over death that Jesus brought at Easter speaks to this yearning in our souls.

I think it was CS Lewis who said if you find yourself uncomfortable in the world and have a yearning for something that is not here. It probably means you were meant for some other place or some other world. This verse reminds me of that idea and the promise of Easter is that God has it all in the works.
