Weekly Devotion

How do you stay fresh and sane in the busy seasons of life?

This is not a rhetorical question. I would love to hear back from you.

One of my favorite verses is Psalm 1. Verses 1 and 2 say. Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked. or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his Law Day and night.

I find the intentional  action of reading, studying, and learning keeps me focused on what is important.

It is very true that I read books on all sorts of topics, sides, and opinions alongside the Bible. I have embraced the idea that is without striving to understand and engage our mind in the deeper and harder challenges in our world it is impossible to understand what God is up to. Netflix, TikTok Facebook or pick your personal favorite distraction, will gladly keep us distracted and numb or at least at a surface level of our world.

So, what keeps me sane in the midst of the insanity is to try understanding the bigger questions that God is placing in my head at this season of life.

My latest question and struggle is the idea of the Gospel of Christ (living out the good news of God) which at times can appear to be in tension with the Word of God (our Bible)

If you have any great thoughts or wisdom. I welcome it.

But today’s devotion is really a challenge as to how we are seeking and being challenged as a lifelong learner? Blessings this week as you seek through the complexities of God.
