Uncle Caleb showed up last night and we had a good chat. He has joined the navy and we are all agog to hear about it. But he made a comment that got me thinking. He said that after a really hard workout he notices that his body is more sensitive to certain types of foods and so he prefers to steer clear of those foods all the time. Not that those foods are necessarily bad or that he never eats them, but rather he notices a dulling of his senses when he indulges in them to frequently. While musing on that statement and a few similarities in my life I got to thinking about my spiritual life. During an extreme workout of the spiritual type, I, too, am aware of certain sensitivities. There are certain things that I avoid during that time frame because I know that it will distract me and dull my senses. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m quite as wise as Uncle Caleb because I haven’t figured out that it would be better for me to avoid them on a daily basis. Something else to work on, Lord, and of course, You know I can’t do it alone. Thank You for continuing to draw me closer.
