Finding My Way Home

Of late, blogging and reading blogs have become a luxury. Time is at a premium. Much of it was spent on travelling, meetings, housekeeping, cooking, washing up afterwards and laundry. Apart from that time had to be allocated for administrative work such as replying to emails and drawing up plans and strategies for the projects that I am currently working on.

After all those, there is very little time left to myself. I have never been so occupied before. Most nights, I hit the pillow exhausted and fall asleep almost immediately. Noon naps have also become a rare indulgence. Those leisurely days of the past are gone. I had prayed for a purpose. It has been granted. I have no cause to complain. In fact, there is this minor sense of contentment for being able to see the direction that I need to take to achieve the goals that I have set.

What I miss most are those private moments of communion with God. Even prayers have to be rushed. It is just not right. It has been a while since I have spent quiet time contemplating on the spiritual aspects of my life. This is important for me to continue doing what I have begun. More than often, I have drawn strength and wisdom from the Scriptures when I am faced with obstacles. The road ahead is still long. I definitely will need guidance every step of the way. I need to go back to the root that brought about this wonderful journey. I need to go back to God.

  1. I know exactyly how you feel Pete. Last week when I was at Mother Mary’s statue, I really felt like I was home. She was home..:)

  2. say….did you take that pic on the highway? where is it? looks familiar…(but then again almost all highways look the same)

  3. God’s first purpose for us is to know Him and for Him to enjoy us.. that makes spending time with Him one of the most important things, above the “urgent” things we’re doing.. 🙂
