Alarms are helpful even if they’re disturbing. Alarms tell us: it’s time to get up, there’s a fire, someone is trying to break into our car & lots more. Alarms alert us to something amiss & wake us from foggy & hazy living.
Sometimes, however, we might resent alarms. We might resent an alarming doctors report that tells us to change our eating or exercise habits. We might resent the red light alarm in the car about a low oil problem & lots of other examples. And there are other alarms that we probably don’t like, even though we need them.
I find that God uses alarms in my life:
- to get my attention
- to help me get moving in more healthy directions
- to make choices with more wisdom
Don’t be unsettled by alarms, let them be helpful motivators for good adjustments & tweaks ,)
