Ponderings and possibilities

Dangerous mind?

How far should we take our thoughts so far as putting ourselves in someones situation, really, and going through the motions as to what we might think, feel and do?

There is that gap again; keeps coming up in thoughts and conversation.

Should I back off on over thinking it and rather than look for clarity, pray for increased faith to take each day one at a time?  Feels like I get boiled like a frog this way..  each day passes and I think tomorrow will be the one.   I so want to make a difference for the kingdom, but I so don’t feel like I am having an impact day to day.

Kids need protection,  homeless need food and help to get on their feet, relationships need fostering to draw people to the Gospel and make disciples…  I’d love to do these, but I am too busy (ugh).

So, am I really putting myself in these peoples situations or am I just being selfish and not taking action once I have gone through the motions?

I am going to continue thinking and praying through what these people in need might be feeling in this world, but keep my eyes and ears open to see if there is someone that I should be looking out for as they are on the road to a nasty ending after they become dust. 

Colossians 1:24 Paul’s Labor for the Church

24Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church. 25I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness— 26the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. 27To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

28We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. 29To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.

The grass is always greener so I don’t commit in case I see the grass is greener. What needs to be done and what is nice to do are two different things. Ugh. Wretched man I am.
