Do we sometimes just stop, rewind and think “hold up”, what is going on? Or do we continue until we hope that our lives will make sense?
During my absence from God I’ve been all over except where I need to be. Is it me seeking validation from people and hoping my life will finally make sense, the social media standard? Or because I am still where I’ve always been, never really gone anywhere, just going around in circles looking for a corner.
Maybe I just need to distance myself from the world for a while, reconnect with God and this life will make sense, the way God has meant for it to be. I am reminded of this when I’m going through all of these thoughts and emotions:
Does this sound as if I am trying to win human approval? No indeed! What I want is God’s approval! Am I trying to be popular with people? If I were still trying to do so, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Trust in the LORD and do good; live in the land and be safe. Seek your happiness in the LORD , and he will give you your heart’s desire. Give yourself to the LORD ; trust in him, and he will help you; he will make your righteousness shine like the noonday sun.
We lack patience and want things to go our own way, so that we can be like others and be where others are or are going. This has nothing to do with God’s plan for us, but rather seeking validation of the world and live according to its standards. When things don’t go according to our plans and we are left dissapointed because we didn’t reach our timeline, it is then we quiet down and reach out to God for healing and help, how unfair.
But we go to Him because we are wounded and need healing and He is the only way we can get healing, hapiness and completion.
Isn’t it time that we distanced ourselves from the world and realise that God is really the way, truth and life?
Then we would have realised a lot in our lifetime…
