Conviction in Communicating

This is an excellent vignette on the loss of commitment to language elicited in our society today. Say what you mean and stand behind it.

Being in Transition

The problem with being in “transition” is that it gives the impression there is some kind of movement.  How I wish that was true. For some reason I feel like my world is growing smaller and smaller as if a giant planetary telescope has been turned around and zoomed in directly on me.  Its precise measurements hone in on my universe of faults and inadequacies and I don’t like the picture I see. Like I’m discovering uncharted galaxies of sin that I have heretofore been completely oblivious to.  So what happens when transition looks more like a stalled out car than a rocket ship?  I want to reach the moon but I’m finding that my fuel is depleted and I think I busted an O-ring somewhere.  Back to the drawing board?  Blow the whole thing up?  Or figure out why?  Why am I stationary?  Why can’t I get moving?  I have a lot of questions and somehow I feel like its all related to my heart.  Somewhere along the way I lost it and I can’t seem to find it anymore.  Its like a Where’s Waldo from hell.  The only solace I’ve been able to find is reading people’s stories about how God has done something new in their lives.  I read them and I think how much I would like to see that again.  The days when I felt God’s presence regularly and knew I was on a mission for him.  Now I just sit here stewing.  What is it I’m supposed to learn?  I wish I had an answer.  So far nothing has seemed to work.  I’m hopeful that in the days ahead I will come to a revelation but its been slow going these past few months.  I just want to realize what I’m supposed to and get on with the rest of my life.  Somehow I’m in limbo and I find it really unsettling.  I know there is a lesson in here and damned if I am going to sit here and not make an effort to figure it out.  I just wish I had some more encouragement to let me know I’m on the right track.  Kind of like a mile marker on my journey of waiting.  Gotta keep my eyes peeled because they blow by real fast.
