Just a thought
Golf hasn’t been kind to me lately. The last time I was out, I had quite the adventure.. low hooks, bad slices, and a feeling that my swing had left me. I don’t like that feeling. As a result, I decided to take a break from playing for a short while. I don’t have answers to my golf game, but I believe it is all in my mind. Is it perfectionism, worry, trying too hard, lack of confidence? Likely all of the above. My golf game (or lack thereof) makes me wonder if this could translate to our everyday lives. The call of Jesus is to a simple life of faith where we entrust our lives into his hands, and allow the gospel to shape and transform us. It’s a life of prayer, discipleship, service, and living by the Spirit and God’s Word. It sounds simple but it’s quite difficult when we have too many things happening in our minds. Perhaps the way forward in faith is to stay connected with God through prayer and scripture. Here’s a wonderful verse (John 15:5). Jesus said,
I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.
