May we have eyes to see what God has waiting for us.

El Hotel del Salto in Colombia -

Drenched with sweat and chest heaving, we stopped. “Why did you bring me here? What’s so important about this place?”

My guide responded quietly. “What do you see?”

I looked out and saw the old El Hotel del Salto. “I see an old hotel that looks like a haunted mansion. It looks pretty creepy with all the clouds.”

“Is that all you see?”

I looked again. “Moss and plants are growing on the roof. Forest is trying to take it over. This place has been abandoned for years.”

My guide sighed. “Years of caring and love and work went into creating this place. This was someone’s dream once. It used to be shinny and new and full of life – a favorite destination.”

“Wow. I never even thought of that.”

My guide continued on. “John 10:10 says, ‘I have come so that you may life and have it in abundance.’ How many people are satisfied with the haunted mansion in their lives when God has a shinny new hotel waiting for them?”

How many indeed?
