Time For God
Read this missive if you have a moment for God. Try to make it to the end. It originally came to me as a forwarded email, and I nearly deleted it, but was blessed upon finishing it. Enough so, that I re-wrote it.
When I received this missive, I thought… “I don’t have time for these kinds of emails”. Then I got to thinking, “Wait a second, this apathetic thinking process is exactly what’s caused much of the problems in our world today”.
We try to keep God in church on Sunday morning…. maybe Sunday night, and the unlikely event of a midweek service. We do like to have Him around during sickness… and of course, at funerals. However, we don’t have time or room for Him during work or play because… well, that’s the part of our lives we think we can, and should, handle on our own.
May God forgive me for ever thinking that there’s a time or place where He’s not to be first in my life! We should always have time to remember all He’s done for us. If you aren’t ashamed to do this, please follow the instruction given.
I paraphrase Jesus, “If you’re ashamed of me, I’m ashamed of you“. Not ashamed? Then by all means, relay the link to this post!
Yes, I do love God. He’s my source of existence and my Savior. He keeps me functioning. Without Him, I’m nothing; but with Christ, He strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)
This is the simplest test of your life.
If you love God, and, are not ashamed of all the marvelous things He’s done for you, then share this page with folks! Now do you have the time to pass it forward? You’ve read this far. Keep going… you’re almost done.
Easy vs. Hard
Why’s it so hard to tell the truth, yet so easy to lie? Why is it we get so sleepy in church, but right when the sermon’s over we’re suddenly wide awake and ready to hit ‘The Olive Garden? It’s so easy to dismiss a Godly post, yet we read all the vanity ones. Of all the free gifts we may receive, prayer’s the ‘real keeper’. There’s no cost, but fantastic rewards. May God bless you just for reading this!
It’s uncanny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell; or say ‘I believe in God’, but still follow Lucifer (who, by the way, also ‘believes’ in God).
It’s strange too, how we can send a thousand jokes via email and they spread like wildfire, but when we send messages regarding God, people think twice about sharing. In fact, when we go to forward this message, it likely won’t be sent to many on our address list because we’re not sure what they believe, or if they’ll get ticked at us for sending it. It’s rather bothersome to me, how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us? The disciple Peter pretty much set that example, after Jesus was arrested and he denied ever knowing Him.
My prayer, to anyone who has the strength to share this page to their entire address book, is that they will be blessed by God in a way special for them.
