In today’s world it takes every ounce of energy to get us through a day and eventually a week. From morning exercise and breakfast and work. Then errands on the way home. Dinner and a little Facebook, and maybe some cable TV. Then its off to bed to start i all the next day.
Sound all too familiar? Your daily routine may be variations on a theme, but for most working adults it won’t vary too much. Of course if you are of a spiritual nature, then you have devotional time, time in the Word, time in prayer and maybe worship on the way to work.
I have been through some life changing times these last few years. I am a Cancer Survivor of 4 years. I lost my job for almost a year. Due to water damage, I lost 2/3rds of all I owned.I now live in a remodeled condo with no cable by choice.
I have come to understand that only two things in life are constant, God and change. I can count of God to be trustworthy and faithful. Change may not be so kind. It does not seek us out and ask us to participate. It just changes. We adjust or stay stuck in the past. God sees our lives and wishes to see change for our betterment and that of the kingdom of God. We can say “Yes, Lord”or we can stay stuck in our old patterns and ways that don’t work anymore.
What’s the motivation to change? Why go though all the effort? I believe that God’s best is always for us to be learning and growing ever closer to Him. We do that by loosing that things from our past that weigh us down. In addition and most importantly, we need to let Holy Spirit of God lead us and guide us in all truth. As we yield to Him, it is then we will find our answers to the same old status quo od the daily grind.
In relationship with our Heavenly Father is where we find all we need to become free and grow in His love, mercy and ever increasing amazing grace. It is then that we are willing to venture in to the unknown!
May God Bless You Richly this Day and Always!
