On Your Way to Somewhere

This early Sara Bareilles masterpiece is becoming one of my 2012 theme songs. It’s about living in a perpetual atmosphere of Things About To Happen… and then they don’t. I’ve been thinking about how much weight ambition should have in the Christian life; how much responsibility we have to “make things happen” for ourselves; and whether it’s worse to “stay surrendered” and expect God to take care of everything, or keep striving toward something that might not be what God wants for you.

It’s always just around the corner, or you’re on your way to somewhere
That is bigger or better, if you could only get there
It’s never your fault, you can’t start your own winning streak
But I’d hate to lose you to the fortune you seek.

    I think it’s a combination. God doesn’t expect us to be lazy and wait on Him for everything, but at the same time, we have to rely on Him to guide us in our lives. And there will be times when you have no idea what to do, where to go.
