I am learning that things happen fast, life moves quickly. I know, I know that is not supposed to be (and is in fact not) a new revalation. I am simply saying when we humans grasp what we do view as the "big picture", that is to say we can finally wrap our heads around the fact that there is more to this life, is this it? We begin to start to think, what is it that there is more of? How do we achieve this "more of?" Is this something that is attainable, or is it something to which we must resign ourselves to pursue though never to fully grasp? If that later is the case, then I ask why? Please, know that I am in no way claiming that there is nothing more to "life", that there is no "big picture", for I do subscribe to this. I am merely wondering at what point to we attempt to pursue this "more to life", and how does this, practically, look? Is it evidenced by an ascetic life? If so, who can truly say whether this life is lead with a pure motivation? I know we are to leave the judging up to God, which is good. But the mere fact that these thoughts crop up into our heads makes me wonder, by trying to judge and decide these life altering questions, are we attempting to gain that forbidden fruit once again? Would we not be better to trust? All my life I have heard people say things like "I am learning to trust God with every area of my life". Which is great. My wondering arises when I hear the same statement over and over again. Is this a sign of non-growth, or is it merely a case of semantics? If the first, is the fact that these people continue to say that they are "learning to trust God with every..." is this saying that they reach some point of understanding, some light bulb reflection of how they are to live, but then the bulb dims for awhile, only to be lit again at some later point? If this is the case, should we not be growing beyond this point? Yes, I know we stumble, we trip, two steps forward one step back...but throughout a genuine "born-again Christian's" life, shouldn't one expect to outgrow this constant "learning" to where it is a constant state, a place of "I have learned, and am living"? Some would say yes, and that when others say "I am learning to trust God..." that it is that they are learning to trust God with a new area of their lives. So, then it amounts to a matter of semantics, in which case we should be more precise, and I should be less anal about which words we should use when referring to our Christian Spirituality.
