  1. I agree with your post. Sometimes I feel like the hamster running on the wheel of life, never getting anywhere and never getting off. And for what? To keep up with the Jones’ ? To be “successful”? Because it is what they expect me to do? Who are they, anyway?

    I appreciate your reflective post. We shouldn’t just do to do or be to be. We were carefully designed by a Maker for more than the mundane and trivial, for more than social expectations of a perverse culture, and for more than our selfish lusts and desires.

    How do we draw motivation from the Right Source? How do you suggest we keep this in the front of our minds?

    I need your prayers.

    This is a great question: “Who are they, anyway?” 😀 A lot of the time we forget that we are part of the “big they” – we are part of society. If we simply follow suit we are helping to normalise the very things we disagree with.

    Really love your meditations.

    Drawing motivation from the right sources…”All things are lawful, but not all things are expedient” – if I put this mantra in front of me, then it begs a question: expedient toward what? That latter question is one of identity – a return to the image and likeness of Christ, or a real appreciation of WHO I am as a Christian, not “WHAT do Christians do”. This sounds more philosophical than it actually is. If I really think about who I am supposed to be, then that question should come up so much that it requires me to constantly go back to “the Right Source”.

    was that vague? 🙂

    pray for me.
