Hector and the Search for Happiness tells the story of Hector who, as the title suggests, wants to discover what makes people happy.
At one point, he is hiking a path which starts to get steeper and steeper. And yet, “Hector didn’t feel tired anymore because he was eager to arrive.” I think that’s a profound statement. Even though he was tired, he didn’t feel tired. When we’re doing something difficult, we are more motivated to push forward when we see the end in sight, and when we can almost taste our reward.
In a pandemic world, we’re tired… and the end isn’t in sight. So how do we keep going, and keep motivated, and keep energized, when we can’t yet see the top of the mountain?
The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly. It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies. This episode is the later—a more in-depth look at Hebrews 4:1-13.
I take us through the text and explore what it means to enter the Sabbath rest of God, and how that might motivate and energize us when we can’t yet see the top of the mountain.
