Little reminders in the midst of busyness...

This is from Carl Trueman at the Reformation 21 blog:

"Above all, the iPhone phenomenon speaks of the need to be continually occupied with texts, tweets and whatever. The obsession with texting and these other phenomena is indicative of the general noise we need to generate to keep ourselves occupied. One of those things which calls to mind Pascal: the measure of true human being is the ability to sit alone in silence in a room. Were we to do that, in our fallen state we would have no choice but to face our own mortality, the ultimate hopeless futility of our existence without God.

Have a nice day."
It sounds like my daily struggle with consuming myself with other stuff instead of thinking on Him.
May we find times of reflection sobering yet with a smile. :)
