What Demands my Life?


It’s seemed too long since I’ve updated the blog.  I’ve had a lot of late nights working, mixed in with travel, and then all of the non glamorous stuff like cleaning toilets and dusting around the house in my spare time.  In fact, just last Sunday I actually had to choose whether I was going to go grocery shopping for the week or clean my house.

I realize quickly that I’m pulled constantly by nearly everything around me that it is so easy to lose sight of the overall picture of what I want my life to be.  When I let work pull hardest at my life, I realize that I don’t have the time or the energy for building relationships with people outside of work.  When I let my desire to have comfort dictate my life, I realize that I can waste a lot of time watching Netflix instant watch instead of doing something that is of value and worth.

At church today, we sang “O the Wondrous Cross”.  The following words stuck with me all day:

Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

These words sum up the only true thing that can demand my life.  Jesus.

My prayer this week is that I could begin to know more about the love of Jesus, and the knowledge of this love would begin to demand everything in my life.
