the Survivalist Present on Netflix is Superb

Effectively I’m sitting right here, bundled up in blankets, down for the depend with a horrible sinus an infection.

I’ve had a fever of 102+ for the final couple days, and I’ll inform you what – I hate being sick.

It’s ironic, really, as a result of I haven’t been sick in…no joke, most likely 10 or 11 years; and right here TWICE within the final MONTH I’ve been actually sick! As soon as with Covid and now this behemoth of a sinus an infection.

I went to Pressing Care and examined damaging for Strep, the Flu, and Covid.

It simply jogs my memory that being sick is NO FUN. Particularly when you possibly can’t style, odor or breathe.

However I’ll inform you what – I’ve watched extra TV in the previous couple of days than I’ve in most likely the final 3 years mixed. I NEVER watch TV. As in, it’s actually by no means on. For perspective, my electrical invoice each month in NYC was actually $29.33 precisely, to the penny. As a result of I by no means turned on the TV!

However now that I’m sick and am forcing myself to really heal and never “over-do-it” like I’ve all the time achieved once I’m sick, I’ve allowed myself to work from mattress, relaxation, and have the TV on within the background. And let me inform ya…

TV is….addicting.

I’ve watched your complete Meghan and Harry documentary….which…I’ve A LOT of ideas about, and if you happen to’d like me to expound upon them, I’ll in one other put up.

However I’ve additionally watched a lot of the newest season of Alone. Which is fascinating. Have you ever seen it? It’s the place 10 survivalists are dropped off within the harsh wilderness with solely 10 objects, they usually attempt to be the final to outlive.

And so they’re all dropped off at totally different components of the huge wilderness, so nobody is aware of how many individuals are left, or if they’re the final one. They’ve to only survive till they’ll’t, after which “Faucet Out” on their emergency “GPS locator” the place they’ve rescue crews on standby.

To date, folks have tapped out as a result of one thought he was having a coronary heart assault, one due to bears, one as a result of that they had misplaced over 18% of their physique weight, one due to loneliness, and one due to hypothermia.

It’s presently day 45 and there are 4 folks left, and winter has begun.

Watching folks in survival mode actually places issues in perspective in your personal life, let me inform you. Your personal little grievances don’t appear so unhealthy whenever you’re actually watching folks attempting to outlive on bugs and tree roots, whereas being hunted by grizzly bears.

One factor that I’ve seen although, is that not one of the contestants have talked about God. And that’s not as a result of the present is anti-religion. There’s one contestant who’s Pagan, and brazenly talks about “the gods.” The present even did a spot in his “opening bundle” about his faith. So it’s not for the present attempting to maintain faith separate.

There is a variety of “Thanks, Lake, for the fish.” Or, “Thanks, Rabbit, on your life.” However nothing about God.

And I simply discovered myself considering, Gosh, if you happen to’re surviving within the wilderness, surrounded by God’s attractive — but unrelenting — creation; wouldn’t that be a time that you simply really ponder God? You’re head to head, nostril to nostril — not solely with the truth of your existence — but additionally, you’re counting on what that wilderness “provides” you….how might you not acknowledge God’s hand in all of it? Notably if you happen to really feel you’re combating to remain alive.

I don’t know…these are just a few ideas which have gone by my head as I’m watching this present.

It’s actually a exceptional present, and I urge anybody to observe it. The shelters that these contestants construct for themselves are nothing wanting unimaginable. That alone is definitely worth the watch!

However in watching their scenario from the surface, maybe it’s time that I take an outsider’s perspective on my personal scenario. And understand that: a) I must be very grateful for my well being, and that I’m able to run, and reside and exist with out ache or struggling on a each day foundation. That’s one thing I positively understand I take without any consideration.

And b), that life can change within the blink of an eye fixed. So there isn’t any higher time than proper now to guarantee that your relationship with God is the place it must be.

And prayer? Heck…if I can watch a complete season of Alone, then I can definitely discover quarter-hour in my day to speak to God.

That’s the factor. All these folks combating to outlive within the wilderness: they have been all speaking about how lonely they have been, and the way the thoughts is what’s the hardest factor to beat in that experiment. And I discovered myself considering — Come on! You’re encompass by God in His magnificent creation. Speak to Him! He’d like to hear!

After which it hit me: how a lot do I want to listen to that message? I don’t must go reside in a log hut within the woods to acknowledge my want to speak extra with our Creator. However I do must create the area — deliberately create the silence — to take action. And that is the toughest half.

However that’s my problem to myself. And in addition to you, if you happen to’d like to affix me.

Alright. Effectively it’s time for me to go and take one other ginger shot and have a bowl of soup.

Have a beautiful weekend, and I’ll speak to you on Monday!
