Okay, have you ever felt like your life was just a series of trials after another? Just as you feel like you might be able to come up for air, the wind gets knocked out of you. Just about the time you can separate things into compartments in your mind, does the invisible shelf collapse?
That is where a lot of us are these days. Nothing is the same, the familiar is slipping away, and the earth is crumbling under our feet. I can talk about myself, so here goes. I wouldn’t say I like the way life is changing; the familiar was familiar, cosy and dependable. Yes, it is good to have a change, but I am afraid this world we humans are creating will not last the test of time.
These past few years stole from me. These past few years have made me question everything in my life. I am being asked to accept things, situations and values that stand against the core of who I am. The situations and values that shaped the person I am now I came to believe were constant. I came to think that I was safe and secure knowing where I stood.
It’s not that way, and it is difficult for me to wrap my mind and soul around it.
So with that being said, these questions remain for me: What do I do? If anything, how do I navigate my life in this climate? Do I change or do I stand up for myself? What would that look like?
Just questions and I know I will get answers. Thanks for reading. Any thoughts?
Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version
15 Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.[b]
16 And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment
both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
a time to judge every deed.”
