God Is More Than…..
I’ve been writing this little piece of the Interwebs for just over three years now. I began it way back about 100 years ago in 2011. If you haven’t noticed, I spend a lot of time writing about God, church, the Church and faith.
It takes a lot of content to write a blog for three years and 1,000 posts. You begin to look for ideas everywhere. In fact, you don’t even realize that you are scanning for inspiration. You just are. Conversations. Movies and TV shows. Books. Other blog posts. The Bible. God.
It’s real easy to begin to focus on finding content instead of the content itself. There is a slippery slope between something resonating with you so much it winds up in your writing and simply seeking that next idea to write about before you go to bed.
God can become who you tweet about. He can become another Facebook status. He can be your 1,65th post.
The thing is, and let’s be honest, He’s much more than that. If He become all of these other things to us, it’s time to stop, drop and roll. Or something like that, because we might find a little lightning hitting our backsides.
Oh Lord God, Father, Savior…..I beg you to not let me get in this situation. When I approach that line, wake me up before I cross it.
I challenge you to make sure that you don’t fall into that trap either. All of us are capable and susceptible. Chase after that relationship with Him to avoid it.
Have you ever found yourself letting God just become content instead of who He is?
