What Is That To You?

Life races on. One day after another.

Family. Work. Faith. Juggling and more juggling.

Winter. Spring….

Glorious Spring.

Patience. Peace…

Uh peace?

Was I really at peace?

It is so easy to get overwhelmed by technology. At least for me.

Checking this. Adding that. Commenting here. Reposting that.

All the while aware

without even wanting to know

what so many others are doing.

Beaches. Cruises. Books. Families. Weddings. Graduations. And on and on.

When suddenly  a strange feeling like a thick blanket comes over me.

Why? Yes why?

Crazy as it seems the constant awareness of what others are doing

instead of giving joy brings weariness and the beginnings of discouragement.

Lord, you know all that is going on.

Like pulling out of an ocean of sticky molasses

I reach for His Hand  and hear His gentle whisper.

“What is that to you?”

Suddenly the busyness stops. The noise quiets. And my heart beats slower.

Yes, what is it to me?

His Call to me is unique.

His Love to follow is personal.

His purpose for my life is chosen just for me.

So what is it to me? To us?

Quiet the noise and keep our eyes on the One Who called us.

Be intentional. Refuse to get distracted.

And remember

What is that to you?

You follow Me.
