Not for the faint of heart…

You’re going to need to sit down for this…

But, you won’t be able to!


I’m still processing my weekend.  I had practice, four music sets, parental “discussions”, new ideas, failed ideas, songs to write, conflict, coffee, car repairs, shopping trips, and time with God that brought me to tears.  And that’s just a few of the highlights.

Some of this was mundane.  Some was anything but.  The future didn’t orchestrate itself.  I had to engage, pray, believe.

The funny part is that it never ends.  Well, I guess it will end, someday.  But, I’m not dead yet.  So, I get to live it.

Yes, it leaves me feeling disjointed, wondering.  It can be confusing, painful, just plain weird.

I don’t understand how people can not raise their hands in worship.  I guess I can, sort of.  But seriously, half the time I’m not sure whether it’s an act of lifting Him up or a plea for Him to lift me up.

It’s a war.  It’s a dance.  

Remove Jesus and it all becomes meaningless.  Why continue if there is nothing beyond our years here?  What real purpose do we serve if not as a part of something eternal, something divine?  And if my only acts are in reaching up to God, making myself better, have I missed the God wh is reaching down to me, reaching down to us?

Speaking of which, as tired as I might feel right now, it’s time to start another day!


One thought on “Not for the faint of heart…

  1. Just wanted to share my daily reading below. My it lift up your spirit and renew your strength to take on yet another day. Fight on beloved!

    I Want More of You

    I’ve been thinking about you today, as I always do, and I was considering our relationship. I have to be honest. I want more of you. I can’t get enough of you. I love you! Please be more committed to Me today. Don’t you want more of Me? I know that life has its ups and downs and that there are hundreds of things bombarding you that distract you from Me. But I just want a little more of your attention today. Am I not worth it?

    I considered you to be worth everything. I loved you so much that I pursued you with My life. I gave My life to have you as Mine. Will you not render your life to Me? Remember that I am Lord. So let Me be your Lord. What harm will I bring you? Will I not lead you to peace? While others will harm you, and life may drag you down, I will always be a source of comfort to you. I will calm your storms and bring you peace again. Only rest in My arms today and dedicate yourself wholeheartedly to Me.
