My life is complete. I now view texting and checking email in the pews on Sunday morning during worship. Pretty important stuff we have. Much more important than God. Sigh.
Jesus tells us to be plugged into God 24 hours a day/7 days a week and we will have more life than we can imagine. Yet we believe the other way around. We believe if we are constantly electronically connected (we can do this physically too – both with things and people and activities,) we will somehow be validated. It is not wonder we struggle with alcohol and drugs, strained relationships, conspicuous consumption and days packed enough for 2 of us!
God wants to validate us from the inside out. When we allow that, we never cease to know we are loved and are of infinite worth. When validation comes from outside, we are just junkies, religious junkies maybe, but just junkies. We seek the next high. Often, it is not there. Life has lows as well.
God does not fill the lows but he does, through relationship with him, fill people to thrive through the lows. Give him the time. In a low-filled world, it's needed. Put down the phone and live a little.
