I have been absent for a bit. I guess being busy with life and work has me distracted, but I wanted to share a few thoughts this morning before the day gets too busy.
Here we go…
I wonder in five years from now, will I remember what I did yesterday? Will I remember what I do this week?
I wonder why life is so easily forgotten?
I wonder what we would do differently if we knew nobody would judge us?
I wonder if we knew that everyone we know was going to die tomorrow, who would we visit today? Why are we not going to them now?
I wonder why we accept regret as an option for our behavior?
I wonder if my greatest fear will ever come true?
I wonder if I have been the kind of friend to someone who I would want as a friend?
I wonder why the older I get, I question what I once considered wrong is now not so bad? Did it change or did I? Is it possible to know, without a doubt, everything that is good and what is bad?
I wonder which is worse, failing or never trying?
I wonder if not now, then when?
I wonder why all the atheists I see are so mad at God? If they don’t believe in Him then why is He so significant in their life? Why don’t they just talk about something else?
I wonder why people get so caught up in arguing about things of the Bible that really have no impact on eternity? When you start your thoughts with “God couldn’t…” it is a slippery slope to true unbelief.
I wonder how can I live in such a way that I can show the love of God to others who don’t know Him? It often seems fake and “plastic”. I wish I could break down the walls between me and other people and really let them see God’s love.
I wonder why we are all so afraid? All around me are people with an underlying panic, a fear driven manic that keeps them moving so they don’t have to really think about their life.
I wonder what impact my life will honestly have on others? How can a person live for 70 to 80 years and then be so quickly forgotten? Then I wonder why some people are always remembered? What is the secret? How does that happen?
I wonder if we are doing what we believe in, or are we settling for what we are doing?
I wonder why we live in this great battlefield for the souls of men? It seems so dark at times, but then God shows up. I’m looking forward to the day when the battle is over.
I wonder why we so easily value things above people?
I wonder what kind of life my grandchildren will have? It also is followed by the fact that I fear for their future as well.
I wonder, and honestly so, how God makes all this work out for my good? But He does.
Just a few questions I am pondering on this day…
I wonder if you read them?
I wonder if they made you think?
I wonder… a lot…
