We are a hurry-busy-fast society. However, a hand has reached down often enough in my life that SLAMMED on the brakes, Jesus calls to me. Take more time with Me, get into the Word, tomorrow is not promised, but today — it’s here, let’s move some mountains, let’s climb to the top instead of wallowing in the shadows.
I’ve experienced some heavy health issues the last two months. I have slowed WAY down. And yet, with all this free time, I am still selfish, not having committed my time with better intentions.
Our relationship with God is our most important. Jesus walked the earth for 33 years as a human being, we can bring to him all we’ve got. He “gets” it. Let the extra time in your days, be filled with prayer, conversation, servitude and love, all we are; and all we can be — can be received by the love of the Father.
Deuteronomy 4:40Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land theLord your God gives you for all time.
2 Timothy 2:22Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
