It’s ComplicatedBlog — By Kim Gottschild on December 4, 2012 at 7:22 am
Boy, do Christians have to complicate everything.
There are books out there that tell us to just jump into what God is doing. Go out and find what God is doing and then go do it. Be proactive, take charge!
But then we hear we’re supposed to wait on God’s timing, God’s leading.
We’re told to be open to life’s opportunities. Just say yes to whatever comes your way! Adventure awaits!
But thenwe’re told that “No” is empowering is our overcommitted lives. We need to build hedges to protect our time and energy so we can focus on things that really matter.
We’re told to work hard and persevere.
But then stories of everything “just working out” because it’s “A God Thing” abound.
What I’m finally gleaning from all this, after thirty-seven years, is that everyone’s wrong.
Because they’re all right.
Which is no help at all when you want answers.
Which is probably to say that there aren’t any.
Which is probably a good thing.
