"God wants us busy, never giving up
He wants nothing but the whole wide world for us
Nothing but the whole wide world for us
Well there's nothing but the whole wide world for us
Well there's nothing but the whole wide, whole wide world for us"
I hear those words and I am reminded that no matter how hard my struggle seems, God is always there for me. He wants me to succeed according to His idea of success.
So on the days when things are difficult -- the depression seizes me, when I'm tired and unfocused, when I feel completely worthless -- He wants nothing but the whole wide world for me. And it doesn't mean I have to go out and take it by storm. No, all He asks of me is that I receive what He offers.
It doesn't solve everything. It doesn't pull me out my pre-summer funk. But it does provide comfort and hope. Things can and will be better.
He wants me to have the world, as long as I recognize that He is the world.
(lyrics from "Nothing But the Whole Wide World"/Ghost on the Canvas by Glen Campbell)
