{May 22, 2008}   Life Changing

Have you ever had one of those moments that you realize that you are bored with your life? I am having one of those moments now. With sermons and small groups the past few weeks being on changing your life and how to get out of ruts, I have realized that I am stuck in a rut. Even though im constantly going and doing many different fun things, I have become stuck in the scary rut of life. The one you rarely realize you are in. The rut where you realize that you are so caught up in living that you forgot what you are living for. God has been my focus but sometimes it feels like I am so caught up in living for Him that I forget to put Him first. I know crazy, right? But then if you think about it, it happens to the best of us. We try to see what we can do next for God and maybe sometimes that missions project or that trip was not where God wanted you to be, but you were looking for somewhere to serve, and didn’t pay attention to God’s still small voice saying no. Well I have been ignoring that still small voice saying no. I have run myself thin trying to please everyone and everything. Thinking that I was serving God when in reality He just wants me to drop the plates and focus on Him. I have also realized that I have become stuck in the rut of continuity. I do the same things over and over again. I have decided to change that by taking up new hobbys. Right now I am working on rock climbing, then scuba diving, then much much more. So for all of you who are stuck in the rut of life and not truly living…open up and take the chance. Live and learn. Learn what you can do in the world. And most importantly remember that you don’t have to be carrying everything, instead give it all to God and put Him first in your life.
