A Musing

And Other Thinks

 What is life? Life is a musing. At least that’s what I think…

Yes, it’s true. I do think… Some thinks are only fleeting, and may provide some amusement or revelation that redirects my path by a few degrees. Other thinks are much deeper, and take much longer to process. And still other thinks get embedded in my brain like a burr on a sock – and I cannot but pay it the attention for which it clamours.

Yet these thinks do no good if they go no further than my own solid cranium, and so I endeavour to pour onto paper my ponderings and wonderings and even my brick walls. Perhaps one of my readers has the right ladder with which to see over said walls.

My passion is to capture in written form the sparks and quirks and moments of downright random that make ordinary, everyday life anything but ordinary. Humanity is alive and kicking, and if we take a moment to reflect, we are only too ready to laugh at ourselves or cry with another or soak in a blessed truth like rain to a parched land.

Too often, we are content to shuttle through each day with no more enthusiasm than a San Francisco cable car – stopping only to pick up or drop off passengers, and always following the same track. Yet life is so much more than the mundane apparel of the daily grind that we drape across our shoulders like a weary cloak.

What is the purpose of life? What is my purpose in this life? How do I know if I am truly living? These questions are recurring themes in the book of my life, and I can only write them out and muse over the chapters and see what God reveals in the process.

Knowing God is the difference between existence and life, and I am on a journey to understand and embrace this difference – with a life that is being lived. I’d love for you to come along!

Join me on a journey that, hopefully, will be eye-opening, somewhat bumpy, often delightful, and always a musing.

    So true Emma. Knowing God is definitely the difference between life and mere existence. And as you say, life is truly Life when we are a musing on Him. Think we are born for this. Today, I woke up and went to ‘muse’ on Him. I was feeling a bit blue, so, as often, pictured myself climbing onto my Heavenly Father’s lap. I read this, “I wait for the Lord. my soul waits, and in His Word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord, more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with Him is full redemption. He Himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.” Psalm 130. Such balm for my soul! Thank you for inviting us to join you on your journey.
