So as I sit here, still stuck on an energy rush from this weekends excitement and the one to come, it hit me.
How easily do things grab hold of us and jerk us into new directions. I’m generally a very focused worker. I’ve lately been a bit stand offish about my video game play, and been anti gadget.
Yet, here I am, tinkering endlessly with this modified nook, anticipating long hours of play with my friends this weekend, and unable to focus on my job. Albeit I’m doing my job, its with great determination that I remain on task.
How much more or less is our faith a part of our being when we are so easily pulled this way and that? That our hearts and minds are so easily redirected. I’m thankful to say that I’ve continued to read the word, remain in prayer, and give glory to God in what I’m doing and in what is being done for me… this time. This isn’t always the case for me, or for others. To witness that these idols come and go, serves as an amazing contrast to Gods steadfast nature. Why would we need anything more? Why do we forget that? That answer is both simplistic and complex, sin, or that our chief idol is ourselves and not our Creator.
