There are times in life to stick to your routine, and there are times to reevaluate and revitalize. I am in a period of transition trying to avoid the question tornado lurking in the back of my mind.
This Psalm brought me a lot of comfort today. A few verses stand out.
God is so much bigger than the little ruts I get stuck in and the view of Him I hold through the day. I am praying to get a glimpse of the God who so energized the people around Him that they began to change their world. They began to do life with a greater purpose. And their joy was contagious through the worst of times.
Why do I borrow trouble? I feel like I have built up a list of commands for myself like a backpack full of Norton anthologies. So what do I need to shed from my life? Each relationship is different, and formula “shortcuts” only create detours to truly getting to know You.
God, I want my life to be changed. I thirst for some fiery passion, not dogmatic Chamomile. And that will set me off-balance in my comfortable routine. Thank You already, because You’ve promised to lead me through that to a better place. And I can’t wait to catch a little glimpse around the next bend of life of who You are and how You work. Amen. Here we go again adventuring!
