And I don't know how to fix it
And I don't know what it is
This song, Something's Missing by John Mayer, captures one of the emotions that I frequently feel when I'm trying to work any difficult discipline into my life.
Over the last week or so, since that challenge was issued to blog more frequently over break, I've been blogging about discipline and "training wisely." There have been posts about Resources, Timing, Community and Rhythm. It's been fun to think about.
But something's missing.
Even if we use resources wisely, bite off exactly as much as we can chew, involve other people wisely and pay wise attention to our ups and downs...something's missing.
Here's a hint:
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. - Ephesians 2:8-10
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. - Philippians 2:12-13
