21st Century Promises


We will be amazed before we are even halfway through. We will have a bank account at a smaller bank, because they overlook our irresponsibility in the noblevlight of ‘sticking it to the corporate machine.’ We will have a new smartphone, perhaps even the newst Galaxy and actually pay the bill, on time or even before the due date.

With said smartphone, situations that used to baffle us can be Googled, and we will intuitively know which search result to choose. We will not regret our past, and we can always peek at it via our Facebook timelines. We will comprehend the word serenity, and if not, use our unlimited 4G data plan to Google it’s meaning, maybe stream a Trent Shelton video even, to gain an understanding.

People will like our selfies and self-pity and self-seeking will slip away, as we click like on our friends pictures as well. In fact, we may open Instagram accounts, as simply as linking another social media account, one in good standing, that has not been blocked for pictures of drugs and/or paraphenalia we thought made us cool.

We will find we have the time to like the same pictures on our newly created Instagrams, and discover the various cool filters, fostering our inner creativity, applying it to photography instead of the next junkie stunt.  Our whole attitude and outlook (not that Outlook, we had email in the 90’s) on life will change. We will know God made all this technology and use all of it, even Tinder, to get closer to Him. When someone cancels on us for a first date, we know God is doing for us what we can’t do for ourselves, i.e. the other person thinks we are oddities that should be shipped off to Addict Island, ironically debuting on Bravo next month.

We will not engage in pointless debates, like #blackstormtrooper, because our time is better spent helping others and clearing our wreckage, not adding to it.

Are these extravagant promises? We think not.  I did this whole blog from my phone in 10 minutes and signed up for 3 months of Spotify Premium for $0.99 using my credit card.

Peace, love, and gratitude
