I usually explain my continued devotion to the Lord as being like someone who got married straight out of high school. We could be married to the most loving partner and parent around, but at some point, we are going to get bored. Eventually we all have to ask ourselves how important the vow made as a teenager is to us now. Do we struggle to make it work, or as mature adults, do we start over again?
In the end, I remind myself that if I can get bored with a Lord that never ceases to amaze, then the problem is within – and so, I dig deeper.
