Although it’s well into summer here in Arkansas, lately it feels like I have been snowed under. I have tried to peel my way from under what seems like an avalanche of work and a sudden downpour of the blues. And now I’m fighting off a yucky sinus infection. For many days, it has been like walking through the fog, only doing what has to be done and letting everything else slide like my beloved blog.
For several days now there’s been a lingering question – Who gets the best of you?
How would you answer the question, if asked?
I know the proper Christian way to answer it but in truth that is not how my life is being unfolded at this time.
Some times it isn’t a who that gets our best but rather a what?
Then what becomes of the leftovers?
I don’t want to get to end of this life and find I spent the best of my days chasing that which was important to others yet didn’t really matter to me.
I don’t want to see the tides of time wash away and realize my days were spent only chasing vanity rather than those things which are truly eternal.
There are times we become lost on this road called life and that little GPS can not readily help us navigate our way back but there is One who never loses sight of us. He never forgets the plan he has for us from the beginning before he knitted us together in the darkness of mother’s womb.
P. S. My apologies to anyone who may have stopped by for The Friday Fellowship this week. Hope to be back next week.
