Why labor in vain for things that will supposedly enhance my future?

Why all this striving for greatness?

Why chasing after degrees or titles?

Why run after success?

Why graduate on time?

Why achieve as much as possible?

Why “seize” opportunities?

Why consume more?

Why obtain more?

Why lust after more money?

Why lust after success?

Why excessively desire more, more, more?

With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has showed you, O man, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:6-8

WALK HUMBLY… act justly… love mercy. That is what is required. When will I get this through my thick skull and hard heart? I want to live the good way God has shown. No wonder I have these feelings of unrest and no peace. Striving and chasing things that have absolutely no substance when they are outside of the Lord. Psalm 107 that I posted prior to this… made me weep. I miss just walking with the Lord. Just walking. Not the running after “my” life I’m doing.

I can’t “live” like this any more. I’m giving up and letting go.
