An Inward Look.
Our blog topic this week takes me to a place of self examination. Not necessarily looking to pull out all of the bad or negative attributes but leaning more toward an idea of where do I stand in this thing we call life? Where do I find myself spending most of my time? What could I be doing to be a true force for the Kingdom? You know, the things that make you go hmmm!!!
In our current climate, we find that the economy is uncertain, the way we used to do things is no more, the love that we used to feel has waxed cold, and the joy that we once knew has become a relic of the past. But I am here to cause each of you to think on this; what have I (you as the individual) done to contribute to our current state of affairs? At some point I began to become comfortable with self isolation. This has become my defense mechanism. If I remain in the four walls of my own home then I will never have to deal with the mean and ugly world that is on the outside. The pandemic of COVID-19, took a toll on most of our lives. Our children began to experience anxiety, parents had to spend more time at home, and the elderly became disconnected from society. Nevertheless, we survived!!!
We had to make some adjustments in order to accommodate those that will most likely never feel comfortable enough to gather together. The church had to move into the age of social media, jobs had to open up work from home options, businesses had to apply for government funding in order to remain afloat. Life as we knew it will never be the same. But what can we do to make it better? Which brings me back to my original question of self-examination; what have I done to contribute to the current state of affairs?
As I take time to check me, I implore you to take some time out to check you. And where ever you find yourself, be it good or bad; take the necessary actions to become better to assure that your presence provides change and that your light continues to shine.
I'm praying for you.
