Busyness number two
I am looking forward to this day....The reason why is
because I know that nothing touches my life that
hasn't first passed through the hand of God. He
Knows what is best for me and I trust His hand in
Think about this..... As Christians are we finding
that our lives are too busy to serve the Lord....
Yesterday I spoke about parents being too busy to
notice their children, but today I wander how many
of us are too busy to serve our Heavenly Father?
The typical person is so overwhelmed with the
busyness in their lives that our Sunday's are no
longer a day of rest and a day for serving God.
We get up....get dressed for church
and most of the time this is done in such a rushed
fashion that by the time we get to church, we are so
frustrated over simple minor things. Because our
weeks are busy, this leaves no time for proper
organization or sometimes even for the laundry to be
Yet, on Sunday mornings we expect our kids to get
up, eat breakfast and be dressed for church within
thirty minutes, even if they can't find anything clean
to wear. Most of the time they can't find their
shoes or socks. Oh, and what if mom did forget
to buy milk for them to have with their cereal!
Are our hearts really in tune to meet God on Sunday
mornings, or do we go through these hassles
because we know it is expected of us?
Are we sitting in church thinking about what all we
have to get done the next week or are we allowing
our core thoughts be about God and centering in on
So many times we wander why we are not enjoying
life or why we can never accomplish the goals WE
have set for ourselves. How many of us are really
giving God the time that He deserves. How many
of us take the time to seek Him first every morning
in regards to decisions in our lives? It's not enough
just to seek Him for direction, but we should be
singing Praises to Him each and every day for His
goodness and because He is Lord of our lives...
I am appalled how these days we have even allowed
sports to become our Sunday focus.....Instead of
having our children in church learning about God,
they are playing ball learning how to be professional
athletes. Just think for one moment about this.
How does God feel about us robbing Him of HIS time
because we are out there trying to center in on our
child's future. The weeks are filled with practice,
practice, practice....ball, ball, ball and then Saturday
and Sunday is filled with playing ball....
How can we expect these kids to understand that
God is First in our lives? Shug Sez...that we all
need to wake up. We need to truly realize what is
important in this life. We need to be spending
more time with God and with our families.
Don't just balance your time with God....Give him the time and dedication from your heart that He deserves.
Vacation time is the BEST!! Wouldn't it be great if we were all able to take a good vacation at least 10 days or so, ever other month?...
