Vacation…

Posted: July 22, 2022 in Uncategorized

Tomorrow I set off with my wife and son for a week’s vacation, and for the first time since I have been in “full-time ministry” I really feel like I need it. I’m really tired, practically exhausted and I am really exploring why I feel this way. The thing is, it’s not my church, nor is it my ministry to the wider Church. I find both of those ministries immensely fulfilling and meaningful. I love what I do. So what is the problem? As near as I can see it, it’s the world. I am burned out on the world. I am sick of being part of a generation that calls evil good. I am weary of the attack on so much of what is right and good and true. I am tired of the only thing that is still allowed to be called wrong is saying something is wrong. I lament the values being passed on to the next generation. I am undone by the apostasy I see rising up as so much of the “church” seems to have traded the truth of God’s Word for the whims of the culture. I need a few days away from the tumult of “social” media, the “news,” etc. I need a few days of rest and some good moments of quiet contemplation and one more thing. I need to lose myself in worship. Right now I’m pretty much in fight or flight mode. I want to fight and sometimes, if I’m honest, I want to fight ugly, but then I remember, the battle is the Lord’s, so I will flee to Him for a while. Catch you on the other side.
