Intermission – to be in-between journeys or missions…

Does life ever feel like that, like you’re always moving from one journey to the next, one mission to the next. As if there is never enough time just to stop, take it in, and enjoy where you are. As if all your relationships, all those moments you’ve invested with invaluable worth is in the end just a series of clips. Kinda like the Johnny Cash hurt video, kind of like the pieces coming together in “Gone Baby Gone”…pieces spinning by, passing…

…would that kind of life be a ‘tragedy’ or a ‘comedy’. I imagine it would depend on whether you were setting in the amphitheater or the main actor on the screen.

If your life feels like a continual stream of intermissions let me assure it isn’t and yet it is. It isn’t because the journey you’re experiencing right now, glorious or not, is the journey God has intended for you for now. And YET it is because the author of Hebrews says that all of life is sojourn, a journey between journeys, between times, in the middle time. We are just passing by, passing by it all.

 Life is the trailer, life is the epic, life is the intermission, life is the climax and falling action, life is the credits…..life is the light that gives the screen color…He is the light of the cinema without him there would never be an intermission…think about it.
