"We've all been there… "If I just move, get a new job, find new friends… then my life will be perfect.” While these changes may give you a fresh start, before too long, if you haven't dealt with the issues that made you unhappy in the first place, they will eventually rear their ugly heads again. Sadly, you can't escape them. Because, wherever you go, there you are. It is impossible to escape yourself. Problems are meant to be solved, and if you have the courage to face them directly, then you’ll realise this life-changing truth: “You can’t run away from your problems. They will just chase you and get bigger and bigger. If you stand and face them, they will shrivel and disappear.” - W.H. Fordham Filmed in Suurbraak, South Africa. Featuring Sarah Beckett." from video introduction.
The Only Constant in Life
Our Anchor in the Storms of Change
“The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens,” said G.K. Chesterton. “It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits.”
The inscrutability of God makes trying to grasp everything about him not only impossible, but unadvisable. And lethal insomuch as it reveals a pining to supplant him.
And yet, we can know him, and when we do, it is a good deal more of us than our head that finds itself in the heavens.
Colossians 3:1–3 tells us, “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”
It is not just the head of a poet that peaks into the heavenly places, but our whole selves are there, tucked away into Christ, who is at the right hand of God..." from the article: The Only Constant in Life
