The Busyness of life ...

As I sit here in my garden this morning listening to the birds singing and cooing their praises to their Creator, I marvel at the beauty of nature and creation.  The peace and tranquillity sitting here, enjoying what Our Creator made for us, by the works of His hands is overwhelming.
 What a far cry from the world we live in today. The hustle and bustle and busyness of life so easily overtakes and entangles us all.  So much to do, so little time.  So much technology, so many distractions. We have so many  inventions that save us time i.e. washing machines, dishwashers, microwaves, fast food, mobile phones, online shopping. And others which are for our enjoyment i.e. TV, Xbox, computers, facebook, twitter, ... The list is endless.  Yet with all of this technology and time saving gadgets, how come life is still so busy?
The problem is that certain things save us time i.e. dishwasher, washng machine etc and yet other things distract us and take up more time and stop us from enjoying the simple things in life.  Have we forgotten in this fast paced crazy world how to stop and be still?  Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with these things, as long as they don't take over our life and distract us from what really matters.
In today's world, so many burdens are put on us and we don't even see a lot of them.  In our society success is measured by what job we have, how much money we earn,  where we live, what car we drive, what our house is like, what we wear, how popular we are, how many friends we have on facebook, how busy our social life is, how many holidays we have a year, havig the model family etc.... again the list is endless. And that's before we even think about mortgages, bills, family worries, health worries, financial worries! Even church puts burdens on us: come to this meeting go to that meeting, get involved with this project, be in this group, be like this, be like that, chasing after signs and wonders and supposed revivals, guilt if you miss a week.
 
Whenever I meet someone, the first thing they ask me is what do you do? Where do you go to church? Where do you live? Its like all these things define who I am.  Am I a lesser person because I don't have a high powered job or I don't go to church? NO.
 
We were made in the image of Our Father and our sole purpose on this planet is to glorify the One who made us and to walk in His ways, not our own inclinations. In that walk He moulds us and changes us for His glory. Everything else is just stuff, that comes and goes. He is Our Provider, Our Guide, Our Protector, Our Salvation.  Our reliance is solely on Him, not in our abilities and efforts.
 
As I sit here in the peace and tranquillity of my garden, looking at Our Creator's creation, I can honestly say that at this moment I wouldn't trade this moment for any of those other things.  My heart overflows with thankfulness
to My Father who made all things.
My mind takes me to the picture of Genesis 14 from a Hebraic perspective..
 
Genesis 14 v 22  says, 'El (God), Most High, Creator of the shamayim ( heavens ) and earth.'
 
The Hebraic understanding of this verse is:
 
El (God - strong powerful leader) - brought together the shamayim (heavens) and the earth as a nest for His children, so He could nurture and care for them as a mother bird who feathers her nest and looks after her young.  He teaches and guides them into truth by yoking them to Himself.
 
What a beautiful picture of Our Father's love for us. 
 
Creation was put there for us - His children, to enjoy and yet His handiwork also glorifies the work of our Creator hand and His love for us. How many times do we stop, and just be still and  appreciate the work of our Creator's hand and give thanks?
 
Ultimately, our lives were never meant to be chasing after the things of this world.  The world was created with everything in it that we would ever need. We were created to enjoy creation and to choose to have a relationship with Our Creator and walk in His ways.
 
Matthew 11 v 28
 
'Come to Me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I shall give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your beings.  For My yoke is gentle and My burden is light.'
 
To further understand this passage lets look at the Hebrew word for 'God'.
 
The word for God in Hebrew is 'El'.  In pictograph Hebrew it is represented by a picture of an ox and a staff.
 
 
 




The ox represents power because of his great strength.
 
The staff represents authority as well as a yoke. A team of oxen yoked together pull a cart or plow.  To train the younger oxen, an older more experienced ox as the leader was yoked to the younger.
 
The Hebraic meaning of 'El' (God) is a powerful leader. 
The ancient Hebrews saw themselves yoked to the Almighty, who taught them how to walk a proper life.
 
So you can see here the picture that El's yoke is easy and light because He is leading us and guiding us in His plans and purposes.  If we just let Him take the lead all our burdens are lifted.
 
This frees us up to enjoy the freedom of a life in Him and our focus shifts to our relationship with Him and all the other 'stuff' just fades away.
 
I'm reminded of Matthew 6 v 33
 
'Seek first the reign of Elohim, and His righteousness, and all these shall be added to you.'
 
So maybe its time to stop. Time to be still.  Time to contemplate life.  Time to turn off the TV, the smart phone, facebook, your xbox and seek first the Creator and enjoy the simple things in life - a life in Him.
 
Psalm 46 v 10
'Be still and KNOW that I am Elohim (God).'
 
To enjoy a life in Him, we must first get to know Him.  A great place to start it His Name.  Do you know our Creator's Name?  If not click the link here.
 
May Yahuwah bless you and keep you in His ways.

I agree that there are a lot of distractions nowadays, especially technology. It is great that they make things easier for us, but sometimes they just become an even worse time consuming devices. In my opinion, we should set a list that we need to do for a day and keep a track of our time. Let us not let technology run our lives. We should have a day when we can set aside all the devices and just stay at home with our family and friends.
