“Here Nanny had taken the biggest thing God ever made, the horizon- for no mater how far a person can go the horizon is still way beyond you…” – A snippet from my current read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurtson
While reading a book there are always a couple pages that have a line or passage that strikes you at the exact moment you needed it to. This quote was that for me. It’s interesting because I’m still not sure in what way I needed it, but I feel it was important. There isn’t a specific situation going on where I was able to apply it to anything relevant, but again, it felt right. So I began to analyze it.
I’ll stay away from the actual plot of the book and just stick to this quote because I don’t know the first thing about quality book reviews. But I also don’t really know the first thing about blogs and here I am. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make- well I’m not even sure what it is. By that, I mean I’m not sure which of the many meanings I gave this quote, is the one I actually believe. I love that. I love the power books have to make me think in a away that I don’t understand.
So really back to the quote, it basically was a big “This life is all you want it to be- and more” to me. No matter how far I go in life, there will always be more that God can offer me. Wonderful and plentiful things that I cannot imagine. It made me think that I have a really really small plan for my life. Maybe that’s why I shouldn’t be making plans for my life because if I have it my way, I’ll only ever reach the limits of my human mind, and I want more than that. I want all that He can bless me with. After all, it is He who knows the ins and outs of this crazy beautiful world. Why not let the expert show me how its done?
