It is not working! I try to keep up but i can’t. I am chasing shadows, a running after the wind according to Solomon. The schedules are increasing, the responsibilities are ever changing and never reducing. Finances, hmm, don’t get me started on that matter…
See the thing is, I asked for this life but was I ready for it? Did I prepare? Wouldn’t I be happier living like everyone else?
The price for the outstanding life is high. The cost can be a lot to bear BUT the benefits far outweigh the pressing challenges. Peek into a day in the life of Jesus; power hungry disciples, demanding crowds, a family that didn’t get him, disgruntled officials looking for ways to trap him, crown that with a fig tree that did not have the decency to bear fruit, amongst other things. It is recorded that He went to a quiet place to talk with his Father… habitually!
Today, remember and follow the Master. He knew that communication lines would not be jammed, network would not be busy, strength would be exchanged for weakness and peace for chaos. Remember to talk with the father.
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.
