When a gentle south wind began to blow, they thought they had obtained what they wanted
- Acts 27:13b
Sometimes I feel as though I get lulled into a fake sense of peace.
Everything is good : family is doing okay, I am happy with my job,
with my relationships, with life, with school. I have a faily regular routine.
All of these things can be blessings. They are not really wrong or bad.
Wasn't Jesus a carpenter for 30 years? He had family and a job.
Sometimes I push God to the side when I am overwhelmed.
But just as often I don't seek God and his strength and wisdom,
He isn't my rock, counseler, confident when everything seems perfect.
Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise.
I think the problem comes when I am striving for the average, sheltered, uninterrupted life.
'They thought they had obtained what they wanted.' (that doesn't have to mean I need constant adventure). Rather, I want to never stop pursuing my great God, not a calm, perfect life. Whatever blessings he gives me, I want to thank Him for. Whenever trials come, I will seek and rely on Him more.
