constant

That word seems to be foreign in the society we live in.

what does it mean to be “constant”?

consistant

always

unchanging

only God is known for His consistency, His unchanging, His faithfulness, always unchanging.

so what does a life of constant look like?

our double-minded, chasing-wind, never-satisfied culture is exhausting. we cannot count on people, love, friendships, family… we are always looking for what might be better, something we don’t have, something we need {or at least perceive as need}. i read an article called “Generation of Indecision” that nailed it on the head. these are not things that are unique to the newly adult anymore. the lifestyle has permeated full grown men and women in our society. people who want to chase happiness, chase the something-betters of the world, chase wind. so many choices, so many good things, so much to do/see/grasp, so much

my son told me about a speaker that he saw at camp this summer. the speaker spoke of a fish. the fish has everything that he needs to survive and live a complete life in his environment, but he sees the bait, the shiny, the other, and cannot help himself. he must have the other and that’s when life for him ends. if we can just find the satisfaction in the environment that we are currently in, we will be content.

today i prayed for those of us who are caught up in the much of life. i pray that we will be satisfied with where God has us and what He has for us. i pray that we will know the wonder, the glory, the joy, that is the life He has prepared this day for us. i prayed that we would know contentment and satisfaction. i pray that as we may stop striving for one moment to just revel in the love and the life that we have been given. that others would be inspired by the peace that flows from being satisfied only in You, today i pray…

Psalm 104:24-30

O Lord, how many are Your works!
In wisdom You have made them all;
The earth is full of Your possessions.
There is the sea, great and broad,
In which are swarms without number,
Animals both small and great.
There the ships move along,
And Leviathan, which You have formed to sport in it.

They all wait for You
To give them their food in due season.
You give to them, they gather it up;
You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good.
You hide Your face, they are dismayed;
You take away their spirit, they expire
And return to their dust.
You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
And You renew the face of the ground.
