From the movie,”OLIVER”

All he wanted was a little more. The orphan, Oliver Twist, had been sentenced to an orphanage at a young age. To ask for seconds was a big “‘no, no!” He was lucky to get what he got. At least that’s the way the story goes. Still, the image of a hungry child is often too much to bear and we give in to those mournful eyes. We, as good parents, want our children to be filled and nourished.

As we grow older our desire for more becomes apparent in many ways. When we’re children we can’t wait to grow up; when we’re teens we can’t wait to get our driver’s license; when we’re in our twenties we can’t wait to move out on our own; then we can’t wait until we’re married, successful and finally retired. Even when we retire, we can’t wait for something. It’s like that commercial where the kids are talking about what it means to want MORE. What we want in life is what motivates us, but what we want after this life is even more important.

I want to go to heaven and I know that God has made that possible for me. I want all my friends to join me there someday, but I don’t know if that will happen. We all need to ask for MORE mercy from God, because we live in a world still controlled by sin. I pray that when the time comes, we will all be ready, because that is where the MORE is waiting for us.There will be no MORE tears, no MORE suffering, no MORE anixiety, depression, lonlieness. God has given us MORE than we deserve. He has blessed us with MORE than we need, because He loves us MORE than anyone else could possibly love us. Do you want MORE in your life? Do you want the assurance of MORE after death? Are you willing to accept this wonderful gift from God? Just ask Him.

Please, Sir, could I have some MORE? Amen!


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
