I Think I misplaced God

I Think I misplaced God!

Life is a bit of a struggle these days.

I don’t want to get overly descriptive with details but there’s a lot going on in the world right now.

I’m a guy who pays attention.

Things like that impact me.

Kathy and I went on a bike ride in this remote canyon, here they call them “a gulch”, about 30 miles from our home.

The first thing I notice is a herd of white mountain goats grazing on the hills above what looks like an old gold mining operation.

In my mind I hear “Broken Dreams are common.”

We all have that dream of finding gold. Maybe not actual gold but something we dream of that makes us come alive.

We end up settling for less than what we see in our hearts.

Kathy and I are being squeezed hard right now. (not marriage wise but just in life)

Reevaluation is not comfortable but necessary to live authentic lives that align with God’s plan for our lives.

A friend said to me the other day “this is probably life putting pressure on you to force you into the next step.”

I think that’s exactly what God is doing.

Kathy and I are podcast consumers. I love to learn new things. Dr Andrew Huberman is my new go to guy.

I’m discovering in my struggle to keep all the balls in the air I’ve forgotten the most important….my spiritual connection to God and control of my thoughts, my brain and the powerful machine God has given me….my soul.

In my hustle to keep the game going I forgot the umpire was looking me in the eye from home plate. I’m so busy trying to keep my eye on the ball I lost track of the dream and fell into just playing the game.

I don’t need much to make me happy but have too much which is becoming a trap.

I read this morning Gods challenge to me is to think of the deepest, highest, worthiest desire and longing of my heart that is yet unfulfilled and rekindle that desire.

We give up because we don’t see it happening.

We settle because settling is easier than driving.

We forget because disappointment is the easy way out.

And we forget God intends to do for us, even if we know that it is of such utter impossibility that we only laugh at the absurdity that it can actually happen.

So as I sit by the fire contemplating, thinking and writing down first and last steps to move forward with, that heaviness seems to lift.

I misplaced God but He never took His eyes off of me.
