Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.
Today will be my first multi-part journaling. I woke up at 3:30 AM and could not sleep. I had this thought on my mind. In truth I’ve been thinking about these things for years but I’ve only recently been able to put all my thoughts together in what I think is a coherent stream.
Thank you to everyone who has been reading my ramblings of late. I have an autoimmune disease that has taken away my ability to work hard out in the sun. Previously I grew vegetables for our farmer’s market stand and thought as I worked, but it left me little time to write. I am a man who has too many interests and so the Lord has to literally stop me in my tracks on occasion to re-direct me. I think the increase in my autoimmune symptoms is the Lord turning me from farming to writing. I’ve thought on some subjects long enough. I offer them only as what the Lord has been doing, is doing, within me.
The two subjects in this essay, fear and boredom, I believe are paramount for Christians to grapple with in order to understand why, as the body of Christ, we are struggling so mightily in the modern world.
