Upside Down, Inside Out, All in Reverse

A wise man once said, “Meaningless, meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” That sentence has been ringing in my ears this entire weekend. Whenever I am on break my mind starts to run away with negative thoughts. I evaluate all that I do and I come up empty. I ask myself, “What really is the point of striving for the goodwill and approval of mankind?” Even deeper yet is the question, “How do I know that I am within the will of God?”

As we balance on this spinning sphere all that makes sense to us is the opposite of what is divinely ordained. To hold on, we must let go. To live, we must be willing to die. To move forward, we are often called to reverse direction.  We are required to care enough to not care. Less is more as we attempt to tame the wind.

Yes, all that I do is meaningless if I do it for myself…or even if I do it for others so that they will value me. All that I do must be for the honor and glory of the One who died for me, and even then, I cannot do it so that He will love me more. I must live a constant reminder that there is nothing more to do but live Christ.

Aloha! This blog is a window into the active mind of a wife, mother, woman and individual. I may be busy every moment of every day, but I still have time to think. Many seasons have blossomed and faded within my life, and this blog has endured through all of them. It is safe to say that my writing has matured because of them. I hope that you will be inspired to think in fresh ways as you read my writing. To Jesus be all the glory.
