Had an awakening experience today. It wasn't earth shattering. It wasn't mind bending. It wasn't even a surprise. We drift into this mind set or normalcy whichever you would like to call it. We tend to just agree yet never utter the words. Things circulate. People talk. We all have our ears to the ground for new news. We are going with the flow. I become almost listless when I go with the flow.
People say this is life. No one can change it. Everyone does it. It just continues on and on.
One day, we wake up and realize that it's fall but didn't summer just begin? We cannot comprehend who this child is that is asking for our car keys. For goodness sake, didn't I just put her on the school bus for kindergarten? Didn't we just elect a president? What is that noise? Oh it is my alarm! Didn't I just go to sleep?
Let's face it. We are going with the flow. Whatever life brings to our doorstep, we follow it like a horse following a carrot.
It has bothered me lately about all of this. I have been reflecting back on my life. I remember the good old days. I remember the easy life. I remember watching Ed Sullivan in black in white. I remember family members and celebrities that have passed. It just seems like yesterday.
God brought me full circle today. He wonders what I have been doing. He wonders why I am just going with the flow. I am standing in quick sand but not sinking yet. I guess it's my call now. Do I sink or do I continue to go with the flow? I wonder if God will continue to throw me a rope so that I don't sink. The scary thought is why would He?
