I caught myself staring in the mirror tonight… looking at the wrinkles around my eyes, asking myself the question: “Luke, what are you doing?” For the first time in my life, I really don’t know. I have never been in a place where I wasn’t thinking at least a couple years down the road. I was driving into Phoenix to go to Guitar Center with a buddy of mine today and we were talking about how I’ve never not had a purpose in my life.

“Why don’t you move to Hawaii with me for a year?”

“I couldn’t do that, man.”

“Why not?”

“Because I couldn’t just move somewhere without a purpose. In fact, I can’t do anything without purpose. I have to have meaning.”

“Do you think this season of life is one in which God is trying to teach you to let go of your need to have purpose and enjoy each day, one at a time?”

Silence followed.
