I remember the one time that I went to Mount Rushmore. I had looked forward to it. I had seen so many pictures of it. I was excited about seeing it, experiencing it, learning about it even more. However, when we got there it didn’t live up to the hype that I had built up in my head. I seen it and instead of being in awe and truly appreciating it for all the American symbolism, hard work and expense, I just thought, “That’s it? It is not as big as I pictured it.”
If you are one of the many who enjoyed your trip to Mount Rushmore. Great. I am happy for you. This isn’t about poll taking on Mount Rushmore. It is what it is. This is about having an unrealistic expectation and being let down that it somehow doesn’t live up to all the hype. Surely, you have had something like that in your life.
That is not the possibly with God. I think and believe that he lives up to all his promises. He lives up to HIS word. He is there for us at Mass and in heaven. We can put all of our hope and trust in HIM. He is the thing that we can put all our hope on. We can start to see and assume all things that are not ordered correctly will fall short of living in his glory. We can see the empty promises of the devil more and more clearly. The more we come to know God the more we can understand his awe inspiring wonderfulness and want to be with him for all eternity even more.
