Still haven’t found what I’m looking for…

I am a big fan of the group U2, have been for years. I was thrilled a few summers ago to see Bono and the crew in Toronto. It was a huge highlight for me. I really like their lyrics and many songs resonate with me.

Some of the lines in that song are:

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you.

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you.

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.

Today I am in NFLD and we visited a place called the Brigus Cave. This cave is carved out of the middle of a huge rock wall. In 1860 people spent four months using gunpowder to blow a hole through this mountain, and the rock mountain was probably about 25 feet high and maybe 90-100 feet wide. My thought was why didn’t they just walk up over the mountain , it would only take a couple of minutes max, but instead they invested 4 months.

I got to thinking, how many times do we take the much harder route in life? I wonder how much time we waste trying to power our way through things, using lots of time and energy for something. Is it possible there is a much easier and practical way to achieve the same things. Maybe we have started down that road and decide that there is no turning back so we just have to plow through. Maybe that is the right response and maybe it isn’t!

So today I am thinking about all the things I am doing in life and ministry and asking the question: what am I doing in life and ministry that are making my life easier and what are the areas I am trying to blast through? Maybe I am spending too much time on things that don’t matter and not using my time wisely?

Have any of you ever been there?
