Motion

Motion. It’s something I like to see happening and by that I don’t necessarily mean physically. Motion in the sense of progress in all it’s forms. Not necessarily change, but movement in a direction. No, I’m not ADHD (thanks Becca for helping me square that one away), I’m simply tired of living a mundane life. I want more. I want to do something for the God who saved me and Who promises to keep me. So why motion? Well motion creates momentum and it is often easier to do things when you already have momentum.

That’s actually the name of this sites previous theme: Motion. I love motion in my life. Not because it can be an adrenaline rush, that’s just icing on the cake. I love it because it means I’m still being worked on, there’s still hope, I’m still running the race. I think about what promises I can hold on to, perfecting my faith, keeping me from falling, completing the good work, and I am so glad that there is motion towards that.

It also helps remind me that I have a direct effect on that motion. Am I using the motion for the right reasons/causes? Or am I using it to take a direction I know I shouldn’t? Both the sustaining of motion and the direction of the motion, for now, are in my hands. What am I doing to do about it?

Do you have motion in your life? If not, how will you create it? If you do, what are you going to do with it? Believe me, I firmly believe in the sovereignty of God. Question is though, “Are you going to steer with it or against it?”

Cheers.

  1. Funny — I prefer stillness myself. Time to think. For me the question is: “Am I standing in the right place?” “Am I properly oriented?” “Am I properly constituted internally?”

    It takes all kinds of people are required to make the Body function effectively. 🙂

    1. I complete agree with your last statement JZ. Think of Motion more in the sense of Progress, like running the race, or the on-going completion of a work. You can be still or in the right place or properly oriented but that in itself is progress towards God’s goal of making you more like Jesus (Romans 8:29). Like I say, the motion I’m speaking of is the constant progression towards that goal of finishing the race (ie. being conformed to the image of His Son).
