There’s definitely a rhythm to life. I’ve seen that in the few days since starting this blog. I haven’t quite reached my rhythm of writing yet. This is a new addition to my life but a welcome one. I guess it’s one way of shaking things up a bit.
What better time to shake things up than the start of a new year? While I was thinking about the new year I inevitably thought of this past year. Then the year before. Then the year…well, you get the idea. After a few minutes of that I thought…
“Geez, my life is nothing like I thought it would be years ago!”
That thought was a little distressing at first. But as I pondered it a little more I realized it was actually comforting. That thought was the confirmation of something I’ve known but is so easily forgotten in everyday life.
My life is not my own.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20.
For you those of you who follow Jesus, if you think about it, that’s extremely comforting. You no longer have to live your life. You no longer have to “try” to live the Christian life. All you have to do is let Jesus, the One Who lived the Christian life so good that they named it after Him, live through you.
Let Jesus be your Rhythm.
That’s what I’m going for in 2010.
