The scripture for today, March 11, is Ecclesiastes 3:11 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

“…He has also set eternity in the hearts of men….”

People have always thought about eternity. Everyone wonders sometimes why we are here and what happens when we die. All people hope to live on.

That instinct is God speaking to us saying, “Yes, there is an eternity, and I want to be part of yours.”

Indeed, there is a God-shaped emptiness in the heart of man. God wants to fill it. We want him to.

But how bad do we want him to? If we spend each day so busy pursuing things and pleasures and power, it’s easy to forget about him.

Then our heart aches, and we do not understand why.

It is eternity calling out to you. It is God calling out to you. Listen! He’s calling you in His Word ~ the Bible. Open it, and listen….

  1. Thank you so much for many things I have seen in your website.

  2. STRAIGHT TO THE TOP! – Graham, Texas – When I was 19 and my wife was 16 we started our own construction company. We had no money and no jobs but I promised to pay the owner of a hard ware store $3 a weeks for an electric saw. The company grew into a large industrial/commercial business building schools, clinics, churches, manu-facturing plants, setting heavy machinery and we actual built a zoo with no fences, and a little bit of railroad. Also restored an 1867 calvary fort complete with hand whittled wooden pegs. After 28 years I burned out working 16 to 18 hours a day. My wife owned a furniture store and I became an employee. Went back to school and earned my CHC which enabled me to study for my Interior Design degree and registration. Practiced that for 28 years. Said I would never retire, but my wife closed the store! Past Lay Preacher in Methodist Church. Currently non-denominational. Have taught in Assembly of God, non-denominational charisamatic and Methodist. Teach Bible Studies, Christian Values and Christian Living. Artist, Interior designer, writer, Favorite hobby is reading, or is that sandpapering? We just sold our two story Victorian home with 17 rooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths. Built in 1900 and 1901. Since it is all wood, keeping it in repair was a full time job. Currently living in the 'burbs', If there is such a thing in TEXAS! Can now mow the yard in only one and one half hours. Whooopieee!

    So true! When you see someone with an emptiness in their soul, you know what they need.
