A Chasing After The Wind

There are days that  end with the question, “What was that?”

It takes me all week to get caught up from one of those days.  Unless.  It happens more than once. And. It  did last week.   Every. single. day.

I’m not caught up from last week.  At all.

I’ve learned . . .

It’s a choice  to live a good day, even when things don’t go as planned.  The interruptions, problems, and issues do not  define it.  Unless.  I choose.

Along the way I realized  . . .

 When my attention is turned first and foremost to God, the day is good despite  the circumstances.   Living the day without focusing on  God is like a chasing after the wind.  It’s meaningless.

The wise man Solomon is the one that called a meaningless life to be “a chasing after the wind.” He said:

  I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:14, NIV).

The thing is . . .

God brings meaning to our life every. single. day.  With God, we catch the wind.

I don’t want to waste a day by chasing after the wind.  I want to catch the wind every. single. day.

I pray you will have a good day and catch the wind.   –Kerrie
