I am sensing how very fragile so much of my life is. The State of Colorado is having so many problems, it is ridiculous. Oil leaks, gas leaks, sewage in water. Amtrak is not running (where’s Hank Reardon when you really need him?) through the state because of flood damage to the rails. Google mail did not work yesterday and I can’t get it to work this morning. At work yesterday I found myself calling people and asking them where “that thing you were going to send me” was. “I sent it 2 hours ago!” was the usual answer. Then getting e-mail from the boss and discovering it was already hours old and he wanted an answer right away! So much we take for granted that we probably shouldn’t. It is fragile.
I think I can rely on e-mail, voice mail (that wasn’t working either), and computers in general. I carry my iPhone around like it is my lifeline. I wonder if these are my idols. And I am practicing idolatry.
If I put my reliance on God, he never fails me. I think it is a far better idea than putting my reliance on my phone. Now if I can just live that way! (she says as she is looking at her iPhone right next to her for other important!!! things while blogging.)
Reliance upon God. Reliance upon God. Reliance upon God.
