Living aimlessly is not how you would describe the CEO of a major corporation, a doctor engaged in an active medical practice, or an accountant with more work than he can handle. Nor is it how you would describe a priest or a pastor of a mega church. If, however, they have neglected to seek the guidance of the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God, and are living solely in accordance with their wishes and desires, they too can be described as spiritual "beach bums" living aimlessly and without spiritual focus or spiritual purpose.
Being spiritually focused is not merely doing what someone, including a priest or a pastor, tells you that you should be doing. It is doing what the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God indicates that you should do. Only he knows the route to eternity. Only he has an error proof GPS (Global Positioning System). He only is the one you should heed, and his instructions are the ones you should follow.
This Thanksgiving, take a moment to focus on being grateful for the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God. Ask him to show you how to surrender to his lead, to trust his guidance, and to put your hope in him only. Decide that the next year of your life will be lived differently, with a true spiritual focus, and with a purpose that leads you toward eternity.
The Lord God Father in Heaven, El Elohim
