Changing Face

8 hours and 3 states later, I find myself sitting on 68 acres of a postcard-perfect canvas contemplating the stages of life that we all might travel through at point or another (some might get stuck in the earlier of the stages). And I continue to be baffled by the question that rings out in my head continuously, “Why am I here?”

There are points where we find ourselves stretched thin, becoming addicted to the careers in our lives and losing passion for the people that surround and love us. So we purposeful retreat physically and in mind so that we can get back in tune with God and ourselves, and ‘figure this whole thing out.’

Yet, what if there is nothing really to figure out? What if you walk into your retreat begging and pleading for God to get it over with quickly so you can get on with your resting and go back to do it all over again, yet He just throws more at you? Where’s the clarification? Where’s the burning bush? Where’s the talking donkey? Where’s the frustration…oh, wait, there it is!

And it’s not that I am finding frustration in God not answering me, or let alone, fixing me but I am frustrated in the fact that I can’t figure it out. I can’t find the one little niche that will fix all the tireness, all the aggravation… And if I can’t find it then how on earth is God going to find it so he can fix it (problem!).

I forgot how to rest in God, yet God demands it:

For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. — Exodus 20:11

Come to me all who are weak and weary, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. — Matthew 11:28-29

So how do you do that? What do you do? Find me and change me…
