This is Temporary but WE are not.

Of it. In it. With it.

Our Voice - February 4, 2013 - 1 Comments

I’m typing this on my Macbook Pro.  My iPad is close by.  My iPhone is sitting next to me.  I am surrounded by apps, tweets, fb updates, instagrams, and music.  In a matter of a second or two I can be in anyone’s business, updated on any sporting event, navigating any playlist, or reading any article.  It’s a soup of technology, and I like it.  It’s overwhelming though.  I have recently been reminded that while all of technology around me is intriguing, it is not fulfilling.  There is only one soul satisfying, deeply rooted, prophetic, timely, and relevant word that will transcend every moment of my life.  Sometimes, I fit this word in like every other app or piece of information in my life.  It deserves better.  I desire it to be more.  And so this year I have made a decision….The Word of Life will not fit in with everything else.  It will stand out.  I won’t have it just in case.  I will be of it.  I will be in it.  I will be with it.  Everywhere I go.  Before I set out my iPhone, or open my iPad….I will set out my Bible. Before I learn lyrics, I will learn scripture.  Before I read your status, I will read His Word.  The Word of God will be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

    Amen Brother! We have to make it a priority to keep the first things first. I’m afraid that we may be settling for imitation relationships when we miss time with the only one who can truly satisfy. While our modern technology can be useful, we can also find ourselves lacking in face to face contact and life-changing conversations that come from the heart of the Father.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
