I hope this finds each of you well? It has been over a month since my last post and I knew I should have posted something, but simply lacked the needed time due to school and other needs. During this break, I have been presented with numerous prayer requests, some of which have been answered while others are still in need. In addition, I have been thinking about a more user friendly, readily accessible page for Prayer Request and Answers to prayer contrasting what is currently in place (3/23/2013). Over the next few weeks, I'll be revisiting the Prayer Request/Answer to Prayer pages and indexing them for easier navigation.
iRobot.... That's a intriguing title is it not? Although I do like the movie about iRobot, featuring Will Smith, this post is entirely unrelated. To be more specific, I have been thinking about this life, its meaning, value and use; more particularly, the spiritual life. Although both oftentimes reflect the other, I find something very interesting of which I desire to impart to you.
I recently finished one part of my spring semester for school; one of the courses was General Psychology. Much of the class projected an evolutionary stance supplemented with an "all-knowing" attitude of psychology experts. I found a couple of verses aptly describing humankind's knowledge of Psychology.
There are some days when everything seems perfect and nothing could possibly be added or taken away from it. But then there are days that seems to be opposite, full of contemplation. This doesn't mean that the "perfect days" lack contemplation, but human-nature tends to be more reflective and objectivee when things are going badly. Over the last few weeks, I have experienced a strange sensation of despair and discouragement of which I knew was entirely unwarranted or from God. Despite this oddity, I have pondered about my psychology class and the autopilot of my Christian walk before this world. It appears to me that there are many Christians who are satisfied to live everyday and do the minimum or nothing at all; they are simply content that another day is passed. This is where I find myself.
I do not want to stand before Jesus someday and learn that I was basically oblivious to the "road signs" God set before me, but I was too distracted by the cares of this life or running on "auto-pilot". I do not say this to instill fear, but admonishment to be conscious about our walk. It often pays to stay still and examine our walk in Christ (1 Corinthians 11:28). I feel led to stop here, but challenge you to think upon these things you have read. May God Bless you.
