Further reflections from New Wine

I usually go to New Wine, hopeful and expectant of a new touch from God.
My mind tells me that life is for living, that I cannot expect the miraculous every day.
My spirit longs for that to happen. I live in tension.

We talk a lot of ‘work/life balance’. As if life is somehow more meaningful, more spiritual than my work life.

But it’s more than that.

My balance, my tension, is not really between my work and the rest of my life.

It is between the humdrum and the ordinary.

It’s between living in this world, and the kingdom of God.

It is between who I am, and who I am meant to be.

It is between who I am, and who I am becoming.
