thinking eternally means being able to laugh at the lady next to you sucking on her teeth at 6 in the morning.
thinking eternally means not getting mad at the guy driving 25 miles an hour in front of you when you're running late, because really...he could be keeping you from getting in an accident.
thinking eternally means not being upset when you don't get to talk to your boyfriend as much as you'd like because as little time as you get to spend together here, by the grace of God, you've got eternity to hang out.
thinking eternally means realizing that every person you meet is going to have to stand in front of the Lord one day...and it's up to you to let them know that he loves them and wants them to be in heaven with him.
I'm so thankful that God is teaching me to think eternally. In the book "One Thing You Can't Do In Heaven" the author says something to the effect of "you're gonna be dead a whole lot longer than you'll be alive" and it helped me remember that by choosing a life with Christ, I have the freedom to think eternally. Rather than being wrapped up in the day-to-day, I have a hope of something so much bigger than those things. Practice thinking eternally. I bet you'll feel a lot more freedom in life.
