Are you wishing your life away and you don’t even know it?
Maybe it wasn’t today. But maybe it was yesterday. And you got up still feeling sleepy. And before you even finished your first cup of sunshine you said “Boy, I’ll be glad when this day is over.” Sound familiar? Because if it does, it’s a form of wishing your life away. And I’m guessing you don’t really it mean it to be that way. But it’s true.
There’s something very selfish about wishing your life away, too.
Uh-oh. Now, I done did it. Went ahead and mentioned the “S” word. Selfish.
“Golly, Tony. How come you gotta judge me like that? I just wanted the day to be over so I could be past the crud.”
I know. And I understand how tempting it is to wanna be past the crud in life. Because, after all, who in his or her right mind would enjoy crud? Well, maybe somebody who owns a successful crud cleaning business. But besides that…probably nobody else.
But here’s the problem.
Even if you could skip all the crud, today, that doesn’t mean it’s gone. Because we live in a crud filled world. Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever written the word crud so many times in my whole life. Anyway…this world is broken. And we humans broke it. So, we gotta deal with reality. And that means dealing with the consequences.
And if it’s true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (and I’m not so sure that’s always true), then it’s better to brace yourself for the consequences. Instead of wishing your way past them.
So, how do you brace yourself?
Talk to God. He listens when you do.
The Bible says He loves to hear from you.
And He can still be moved. In fact, that truth is proved
When you read His own words through and through.
