an amazing personal promise

Lewis tells us about the amazing promise that Jesus makes us today in A Year with C.S. Lewis.

It's thrilling, isn't it? To think of THE PLACE that Jesus is preparing just for YOU? A place that suits you so perfectly that it's almost embarrassing. A place where you will, for the first time ever, truly feel (and be) at home.

We see snatches of it now. We catch foretastes of this very personal treatment even in this valley of tears. Sometimes God sends you JUST the person you need to talk to. He has them say PRECISELY what you need to hear in that moment. And you feel spoiled. Because God knows how to "spoil" His children.

One day we will see this to the nth degree. We'll experience a personalized present so perfect that it will blow our minds.

God, thank You for You incredible attention to detail... and lavishing that attention on us, Your grateful children.
