This week my family and I will intentionally engage in 21 days of prayer and fasting. These are 21 days when we will give up certain things that we desire and give a more intense focus to spending time communicating with God through prayer. Why would we do that? Why would anyone choose to go without something they wanted, if they could access the object of their desire? They would only do so if they desired something greater.
Time will not stop to allow you to accomplish the goals and realize the dreams you have for your life. Your job is to play the game with awareness. You can’t escape the effects of time, but you can win the game.
Life is rhythmic. We launched this blog a few years ago and I was consistently writing, but then I wrote a book. It’s as simple as that. I couldn’t do both effectively so I took a break from blogging. Now, the book is complete and I’m back!
I wrote a book called NOEL because I saw a need that needed to be addressed.
The images of the destruction the southeastern part of Texas has experienced are overwhelming. Hurricane Harvey devastated many lives.
Emotions have stirred as we watched families waded through filthy water in search of dry ground. Many have acted while watching parents carry children in an attempt to escape with their lives. We have heard the twenty-four-hour news coverage telling the same basic story over and over. They have said, “This area has never flooded, but this time it did and this family lost everything.”
It is a story of devastation and grief, but at some point, you are ready to change the channel or stations. You care, but the situation is overwhelming. Those dealing with this reality are tired from the work they are doing to recover. The rest of us are dealing with compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue is when repeated exposure to a tragedy experienced by others begins to desensitize you to the situation.
