Time's A'wastin'

It's been awhile since I've been here and it has also been awhile since I have been anywhere. It can be so easy to check out on life and then wonder why it feels like it is starting to cave in. It's kind of like building a defense against the onslaught of the tides, if you stop for too long the wind and waves have crushed the work of your hands. They do say that time is the great leveler and it is so true. Time spent in the wrong direction has an even greater abrasive action and life is the recipient of this breaking down. Of course life breaks down into pieces of death and that is my great ruin. For freedom He set me free, so then how great this bondage can be. Now, the spirit can rise above, but it takes a concerted effort in the right direction. I don't want to get into the semantics of faith and works because I would hope we are all past those elementary things. Relationships take work and relationships being built in the midst of a war zone are acutely susceptible to erosion if they are not attended to regularly. My relationship with my wife is like that. The whole of the world system is tearing at the seams that bind us, all the time trying to tear it apart. More so is my relationship with God. This is true because if that goes the whole house comes down. The reality is that this is being built in the midst of a war unlike the physical realm has ever seen. The other reality is that there are only two directions for time to be spent on this relationship....building or eroding.
Hmmmmm, what is it I was going to do now???
