solc: song on the radio.
What a busy day! Currently I’m in the midst of a major life change. Yesterday’s slice of life was too personal to post (not to mention that I left my house at 5:30 am, didn’t return until 10:28 pm and arrived to my pillow until after 1 am), but I’m planning on sharing it next week once other things fall into place.
Today’s slice of life involves a few minutes in my car. I zipped into the parking lot, ready to make a bee-line for the door because of the massive to-do list I have for the next 45 minutes, when I paused at the first line of a song . . . I wanna set the world on fire.
I let go of the key and leaned back in my seat to listen to more. . . Until it’s burning bright for You; It’s everything that I desire; Can I be the one You use?
I was reminded of the real meaning of this thing called life . . . I wanna feed the hungry children; And reach across the farthest land; And tell the broken there is healing; And mercy in the Father’s hands.
I closed my eyes and took a couple deep breaths. In the thick of the school year, it’s often easy to forget the main purpose of our jobs — to make others feel worthy. I was reminded to extend a bit of grace and to slow down. After all, without slowing down and reflecting, we really aren’t living. Tonight take a moment to enjoy this crazy-wonderful journey called life.
