The Three Default Modes

Kimberism: “He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts.” Isaiah 40:28-29 When we’re being stretched beyond what feels like our limit, we often fluctuate between three default modes I define as; the inclination to lie down in the middle of the intersection of life and cry, or get mad, throw a tantrum and blame someone else, or finally the ability to exercise faith concerning what cannot be seen with natural sight.

Let me confess upfront that there are times when I have laid down in the middle of my particular intersection of pain and donned the ugly face, thrown a few fits and stomped my way through my circumstances. To be honest, I have often felt my life was the inconsistent wobbling of a yoyo, but truth be told, I have recoiled time and time again into the safety and surety of an enduring love that has never dropped, or failed me.

Faith can’t be measurement according to perfection, for perfection implies works and nullifies faith. However, every seasoned athlete knows the importance of running for distance, rather than merely a sprint.  Are you measuring your life according to perfection, or endurance and growth over the long haul? © Copyright 2011 Moxie Me Institute, BE U LLC.
