It’s roughly 12:30am and I am burned out. I have been working quite a bit and getting less and less sleep. Although this is because of my job (and employment is something the vast majority of us need in order to live), I’ve been questioning the reasons why we are willing to go the ultimate distance for a job, but not for God?
I learned this past week that I have finally hit senior status in pursuit of my college degree, and I was absolutely shocked. I know what the end goal is, but I didn’t realize I was so close. The irony of me completing a degree in Biblical Studies, at a time when my spiritual life is suffering, is not lost on me. There’s a whole closet of things I have to sort through in order to get back to where I was just six months ago.
I’ve always been a relatively busy person, but at this point in my life, this is ridiculous. Last year taught me quite a bit about dying for Jesus and not the ways of the world, so I have to do better. Where I am, and what I’m doing now, is good but it’s not my calling. And my desire to transition into a more internal way of life is growing greater by the day.
All work and no play makes TheSpiritedNerd less spirited. Peace is on the horizon—I clearly see it.
