The past few days, I “unplugged” on a weekend away in the woods. It’s liberating. And terrifying. This blog isn’t about how technology is bad, blah blah blah (LOL). It’s about how terrifying it is when we’re feeling disconnected or unplugged from our power source – The Lord. Living our own lives how we want may seem liberating at first, but then, we realize that what we think sets us free actually imprisons us. The busyness of life. Lifestyles. Habits. Distractions. Anything that takes us from the Lord is a ripple effect resulting in unplugging. For me, I’ve personally found that when I’m not actively in musical worship (either playing piano, singing, or listening on the radio or music app), I drift and tend to start loosing my connection. It’s a domino effect and eventually my life fills with so many other things, that there’s little room left for my relationship with the Lord. Have you diagnosed the reason for those times of feeling unplugged in your life? I’ve heard it said, “If God feels distant, who moved?” It’s never God. He is never-changing and always constant. Take some time today and truly focus on what God would have you do or get rid of to have that beautiful free-flowing connection with Him. Hebrews 12:1. John 15:4-5. Hebrews 13:8. James 1:17. Psalm 29:2.
