If there is a stronghold in my life right now, it is with validation and where I am looking for it.
Being noticed. Having your voice heard. Making a statement. Making others laugh.
This is the essence of our culture right now.
It is why facebook, blogs, twitter, myspace…
why they all are flooded with people.
They are filled with people who are looking for some sort of validation.
It is why I long to check my email, long to check my facebook wall, long to check my stats on my blogs.
But I am never going to find what I think I’m looking for there.
I can sign on and off of the internet for hours, days, weeks at a time. But it’s still never going to stop that longing.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11
There is a longing in my heart. And the longing is only going to be answered when I seek Him out. And He is there. He is waiting for me to only turn my head towards Him. He is cultivating an obedience in me.
Not an obedience to confine my life, but an obedience that leads to freedom.
And an obedience that finally satisfies and validates.
