We had rehearsal for our younger son’s and his bride to be’s wedding
They rehearsed their walk, their words, their songs, carefully prepared with great anticipation and excitement.
Do we all live our lives rehearsing?
Webster defines Rehearse: you practice work or piece for a later date; prepare for public performance.
You practice work or a piece for a later date.
I watch as they run through it one last time, and I can’t help but wonder if life is a dress rehearsal of such?
Does what we practice most reveal the condition of our soul?
I said yes to Jesus in the sixth grade, but why are there so many no days?
I live saying no as I chase time to finish each task pushing to complete the urgent
while I disregard the important for yet another day.
If “hurry empties the soul” (Ann Voskamp), I quiet possibly am missing what’s right before me.
But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus-
the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
Life is short, and I want to live it well.
His mercies are fresh each morning.
When we read the word, we recognize the graffiti of this world as an opportunity to say yes to telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
Until next time, Pam
