This weekend, I wanted to pray and worship but I just could not feel God’s presence and when I tried to do joyful meditation, I felt a sense of isolation and coldness instead and I realized the issue after studying the usages of salt in scripture.
In the same way that humans cannot live without salt, so humans cannot live without work. It takes work to clean a home, cook,, drive to the grocery store, change diapers, fight an illness, do school work, earn money, serve customers, study the bible, build emotional fulfilling relationships with friends and lovers or dress up for parties and weddings.
Like money, work is a form of currency, and my desire to take a week off from book writing was the reason I could not feel God’s presence when I tried to worship Him. I was getting tired of creative thinking and wanted to just base my book on market analysis and mentors, instead of doing the hard work of inventing something entirely original with no traceable semblance from the real world, my laziness is why God ignored me when I tried to worship Him.
