In recent weeks there is so much going on around me and in my own life it’s difficult to focus upon anything other than a passing glance before moving onto the next thing. After chatting with more than a few people I understand this is not my own personal phenomenon.
What do we do with high octane brainwaves? I am unwilling to give my obvious resource of thinking over to stress about work, bills, chores, errands, family commitments and we won’t even talk about the unexpected pitfalls. Learning about truth is just that, truth. I have spent years wasting my time on useless endeavors but I am no more lingering on myself. I have to fight for this place of peace but oh my, such battles won make the ongoing war bearable.
What war? Well, it’s the same war for all of us; salvation, peace, love and redemption. I am in this for the long haul and no longer do I fight for myself. I am fighting for those I love and cherish but also for those who don’t even know me yet. No other cause is worth my time more than this.
I have to take real care knowing where to put on brakes for the systemic life I am a part of in this century. I cannot derail myself by slamming to a complete halt in all functionality; however it’s important not to live my life as though I am sitting, merely observing from a coach car window; seeing opportunities passing me by. If I make excuses not to get off my “fast train life”, I will never be able to serve. I want to win the war so engagement is my only option.
It’s imperative for us to not live our lives with passing glances. We must focus on our purpose. That being said, what is our purpose? Time is a rush and where are we all rushing to?
1John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
