Don’t Become a Human Sinkhole

dundas_sinkhole

Sinkholes are quite an intense phenomenon, I’ve never seen one up close and personal but I’m always intrigued by how they happen. From what I understand a sinkhole happens when the resources that are underground slowly begin to dry up and the surface of soil starts to lose its support and because of this everything begins to cave in leaving a huge, terrifying hole.

This made me think about how we can easily become human sinkholes! Sometimes in our faith walk we get to a place where we are only doing for God and not being with God. We serve, we talk about God, and we might even pull out our Bibles from time to time to make ourselves feel like we’ve done our “duty” as Christians. We begin to pull on our own strength, thinking we can handle it all, but slowly our foundation begins to get weak. We aren’t spending time with Him, and continuously growing in our relationship with Him. On the outside we look like we’re doing fine but we’re losing our source, our support, the Father and slowly everything begins to cave in and then we’re left with this void (hole).

I want to encourage you today to focus on what’s inside or underneath the surface! Keep feeding your soul, keep sitting at the feet of the father and allow Him to replenish you and strengthen you. Let’s not become human sinkholes. Keep seeking His face.

I waited patiently for the LORD. He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God (Psalm 40:1-3, NIV).

    Can you truly “do for God” if you are not “being for God”? Wouldn’t that just simply be self-serving righteousness – religious obligation for the sake of feeling relieved of duty?

      I think people can “do” for God, such as serving or doing things they think are good or pleasing to God but not really have an understand of Him or aren’t growing in relationship with Him. They complete works but don’t have a prayer life,personal and devotion time with Him, aren’t being led by the Holy spirit.
