orthodoxgladness:

If you want eternal salvation to be your main business, be in the midst of this world as a stranger and an alien. – St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

I will attach to something. I will find a treasure and guard it. My heart will continually look for a place to rest. To hide. To be consumed.

Where this place is. What this treasure is. Will make the entire difference in my life. It is the tipping point of my existence. Beware this decision.

There is nothing in this world that will endure. No material. No entity. No emotion. No desire. No hope. If my soul has attached to these ephemeral ghosts – I will be left naked. Exposed.

Yet, if my soul is hidden in Christ, I will be wrapped in a white robe. Eternally clothed by mercy. Shrouded in grace.
