In a recent blog that Anne Jackson from Oklahoma posted, she started a discussion regarding raising children in the US vs. Uganda. From that blog there has come some very interesting dialogue. For me, it got me thinking again about some of my recent blogs and how they relate to this very thought.
Mainly, my thoughts keep drifting toward how “easy” it is to think we can rely on ourselves vs. God. How there is a tendency to coast through life from time to time, before we “wake up” or have a “life moment” and all of a sudden we need God again – on our terms – NOW. How sad and unfortunate it is to live life this way. Do I do this from time to time? I would be lying if I said no. Am I embarrassed about admitting this? Yes.
I remember reading not long ago that there’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses… To connect that back to Anne’s blog, in my mind, regardless where you live, there are individuals who are interested, and there are individuals who are committed.
Where am I today? I am committed! Where are you? Interested or Committed?
