So Not Into Life

I’m so not into life these days. Not sure why. I have no good reason not to be. I’m extremely blessed and fortunate. I look forward to things at first. Then when it comes time for them…well…not so much. Ever feel that way? Perhaps life just beats it out of you. No doubt life can be difficult and comes with its challenges. No matter what they may be, your problems are the ones you are most concerned about, regardless of how good you may have it compared to someone else, somewhere else. Maybe there are too many people draining your soul, dampening your spirit. It’s hard. Especially if you are a people person. I love people. I love meeting them. I love engaging them. I love helping them. But lately, I don’t know—I guess I’m just less inclined to be around them. Oh, what to do? As a believer, I can take comfort and find refuge in knowing that God has a great plan in mind and that He will help me through this struggle. He is trustworthy. He is faithful. Yes, our God is a delivering God. He’s done that throughout His story. Dejected? Turn to Him. Despairing? Look to Him. Dumbfounded? Seek Him. Despondent? Discover refuge in Him. No, He may not heal your hurt immediately, or solve your problem instantly. But in Him you will find peace while you’re waiting for a supernatural response from Him. In the meantime, put one foot in front of the other. That’s what living a life of faith is about.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
-Hebrews 11:1
