Nothing has to come..we are in eternity now!

I just read a wonderful quote I wanted to share here with all of you, my wonderful online friends!  I don't know anything about the author of this quote, but I love what he says about the eternal reality we are in right now!

"It is eternity now,
I am in the midst of it.
It is about me in the sunshine;
I am in it as the butterfly
   in the light-laden air.
Nothing has to come;
It is now,
Now is eternity;
Now is the immortal life."

Richard Jefferies, in The Story of My Heart

Wow!  I love that!  The phrase that just sticks out to me over and over is that idea that "nothing has to come."  We are not needing to get something  -  we are in eternity right now, wow!  And in this eternity within our hearts, nothing can ever be lost or destroyed, nothing can ever die or be ruined..In that place all is beauty, all is laughter, all is light...We are always children there, living in carefree abandon and joy! 

Complete, okay, full, safe, loved, perfect...nothing has to come...everything is already with God, living in eternity, carrying eternity around inside our chest, wow!  As we say here in South Carolina, 'nothing could be finer!' 
May the amazing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the extravagant love of God, and the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. 2 Co. 13:14
