I really love listening to the radio in my car. I’m not talking about music, but about radio talk shows and sermons that come on while driving to and from work. Don’t get me wrong I love listening to music as well but for some reason I have been pulled in a different direction lately. Listening to sermons and the news has become more appealing. The sermons in particular. They capture my attention and the surrounding traffic congestion just seems to disappear. I find them to be such a sweet distration.
I’m not sure where it all started but I now love my morning commute because of the 8:00 A.M. sermon. It is funny how the topic seems to always be about something in particular that I am dealing with. The topic lately has been about love. Loving not only friends and family, but loving strangers as well. Reminding yourself to show kindness at all times and to all people. Basically the fruits of the spirit including patience, kindness, joy, peace, love, understanding, etc. The things we need to survive in a harsh world. I’m struggling with this topic so much and it keeps coming around and hitting me in the face. I’m failing every test put in front of me which only means I will continue to be tested until I pass. Life’s stuggles should be a topic I write about more often lord knows I sure have enough of them.
