Life can be loud.
Often it can seem like we are busily chugging through life, weighed down by an unending list of to-dos, and an ever-growing list of not-yet-dones. We live in a society that thrives on busy. Fast-food drive-thrus, microwaves, supercenters, and the growing demand for online and televised church services are only a few by-products of our need-it-now culture. Yet every moment gained by utilizing some time-saving device is quickly filled with another task. The mental and emotional capacity required to successfully complete, or even attempt the goals we have set, can leave us feeling like we are living out the latest zombie movie as one of the title characters – zoned out, hungry, tripping over our feet, falling apart, and overflowing with all the wrong emotions.
