Guess I'm in the blogging mood. A sudden realization hits me right now and I'm glad for it: it's the Lord's day.
I remember reading David Brainerd's journal and that was one thing that always caught my attention. He didn't have Sundays. He had Lord's days. And so is with me today very early in the morning.
I recolect my thoughts. Thoughts of long gone friends and I try to stay calm. It is hard to come to a stop after piles of work after work and then come to believe that you seem to be missing on the important things of life. But then you're prompted to ask yourself: what is really important? You discover that you should go to the root of all things. Like the last saturday when I asked a teenager why he thought he felt hot in the middle of the impredictible weather down here. He answered that it was because his choice of pants. I replied to him: "why did you choose those pants?" and he said "I thought it was gonna be cold". Next, I pressed: "why?" and he saw it coming and said: "I don't know". But how is that you don't know it? I guess it's the way it's supposed to be?
A greater thought presses me further...
Anyways, I don't know you but sometimes I wish I could escape from all this vortex we all seem to swim to. If I could only rest for a day, I believe I'll be fine and I'll make it next week.
Now, how can I ignore it?
Lo and behold, it's the Lord's day. Rejoice and be glad in it. It's not a choice. It's a command and by God's grace, I hope to be doing it.
