No, this is not a blog post about politics.

Rather, it is a post about different tyrannies we face in life - usually every day.

I'm referring to those things that we have to deal with every day that are (at least in most cases) a consequence of living in a fallen world. They are things we would be thrilled to avoid, but we cannot.

An example, and the one I will be writing about first, is the tyranny of the now. This is when the demands of the moment seem to take over our day and keep us from getting done the "big picture" things we would like to accomplish.

Different tyrannies in life take up much of our time and patience. They tire us. They often wear us out.

I'll be discussing the tyrannies that I deal with the most. At the same time, I'm interested in what your tyrannies are. Let me know.

On to the tyranny of the now...

I'd better not be on your list of "tyrannies".....
