Lord, I recognise a restlessness within me which calls me onwards, and upwards, and inwards to Yourself. Today I set my heart upon that journey, my hopes upon heaven and my eyes gazing upon your holiness.
I pause to talk with God about this now and listen for what God might want to say to me.
How will I respond to what he is saying?
We live in a world that believes in causality. The law of cause and effect. It is a belief that every single thing that happens within our world, has a cause, an original starting point. Some people might call it karma. You get what you deserve. What goes around, comes around. You reap what you sow. We have so many ways of describing it. But all have the same idea that actions have consequences. So are you just another link in a chain reaction of cosmic inevitability with no genuine agency or autonomy?
