Was a time Paul didn’t confer with people an immediate response, not to consult any human being, upon his revelation of the Son who is, the one of… and is – God.
Time now is to prepare yet there’s Jesus admonishments not to bother: To think about what to say if/when they persecute and – that cares of this world, ruin the sow and reaping. Be holy unprepared, in this sense. How more-have = less-need God + faith-for = find-interventions from God and say/watch, does; “...grows on trees”.
Alternatively need ‘adjustment from idols’ prep. To God. Not the other way around, what works.
One for me is the net. While losing appeal as a vision for social action, picked up a habit. Managing to lose wandering on and on, site upon… and upon. May have an ever-restrictive range of places will visit, yet maddeningly compulsive. Eyes-for is sagging and ambivalence growing but click away like a teen.
Reminded of church meetings, peep go but for few like the surge and vitality, thirty years ago. This peaking with new charisma. For new-www, was about a decade or so ago. Nowadays setting up online and pumping up the volume; tweets, comments and on to DIY is staggeringly low.
Like many; So-done, done me in. Much about a collective disconnect, which can’t help but manifest our woes and frailty. Hope-less-ness weighs in strong. Way to overcome is get on m’soap box and move out of standing in too many crowds. Stick to preaching and prophecy. Dip in on sound reads and watches. But watch it?
Timing is uncanny, although controller predictable. The unfolding of the deep dark state, is ever more pronounced and yet, active attention declining to participate or make a public – sounds, sight or text. People barely even bother re-tweeting. Relative to supposing followers. Comments etc…
As for new outposts? Easy to deconstruct and splurge on all about the whys and/s but… What’s the purpose? And hey, isn’t this the big one. ‘That’ question. Answers found and matter, roads to reconstruction.
Hierarchy of needs. Top one: Significance (awareness why). Remote and reclusive is where God says we find. Crackers reversal eh? Not all/all the time/s but as for moi and now-days.
And for those like me who struggle 98% to wanna get away from things/keep failing/to go – God-alone?
Know God doesn’t hold against and if you would ask, then ask; and come back yet again.
God can turn the inner tides and moves us to be moved to desire. Of course all the way God says has to be. God in us can get us to God. Promised.
