As a person who is likely halfway done with this life, I have learned a few things. I’ve learned by observation, by experimentation, and by application. I’ve learned from my mistakes and, without a doubt, the mistakes of others. I have, like yourself, grown while stumbling and regressed while advancing. Always evolving, always seeking, always learning.
Life is a series of miscues, opportunities, realizations and interpretations and though I’m not entirely certain about many things, I do find truth in my faith. So here is the battle going on in my head…..
My tolerance for things I used to ignore has disappeared. While not necessarily problematic for ME, it has proven to be confusing and irritating for others. While trying very hard not to judge (lest I be judged), my heart breaks for what breaks His.
So here I am. Closer to God.
Further from just about everyone else.
It’s a very disconcerting place to be, quite honestly.
BUT the rules have changed for me and I find that playing the game doesn’t hold as much appeal.
Now I guess I just want my friends and loved ones to sit out with me.
Closer to God and further from everyone else isn’t the easy road….but it is absolutely MY path.
