Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction
Somewhere in BetweenIn church on Sunday morning everything seems so crystal clear, I know what to do and I know how to do it. It seems that I can't go wrong. Yet as soon as I walk out of the door the old selfish thoughts invade my mind.
I'm caught between what I know I should do and what I want to do. These two things collide within me. I'm stuck somewhere in between the darkness and the light.
I'm caught between what's right and what's easy. I know what I should do, but knowing and doing are two different things. And I'm caught in the middle.
I've been blessed with a forgiveness greater than I can imagine. How much more often can I trample on it? My thoughts and actions do not reflect that grace. How long can I go on like this? I've been called for a higher purpose, but how can I fulfill that when I'm trapped between the good and the evil within me?
What is going on inside me? I have an ache in my heart. I know I'm not where I need to be. I need to be doing God's will, but my self-indulgent desires get in the way.
Fulfilling this purpose requires sacrifice - sacrifice of my selfish wants to do what God wants. I am torn between the way I want to act and the way God wants me to act. How long can I continue like this?
