Sometimes every day feels the same as the one before….we fulfill our “responsibilities” of each day and before we know it the day is over and we need to get to bed so we can get up and start all over….
We fill our lives full of routines and distractions
The alarm goes off
Where are my keys
The car needs gas
Traffic is not moving
I’m so tired
My deadline for a project is tomorrow
Where should we eat lunch
My computer just locked up
What’s for dinner
Stop at the grocery store
I haven’t seen that person for a long time
What time is it
I don’t have any clean clothes for tomorrow
I’m so tired
Did you hear that story on the news
Did we win the game
I am going to bed….
Then it starts over again…and different things get added to the list and some fall off depending on the day…no wonder we feel tired, worn out and exhausted. The thing is we really do have free will to choose to live life differently. It is up to us to decide that we are really going to pursue the life that God has intended for us. The hard part is that means we have to let go of some things and start spending time with God every day…not just on Sunday for an hour.
If you feel like there is something more or you feel like there is something missing in your life or if you are realizing you haven’t even stopped long enough to think about it…now is the time.
STOP everything that is routine and distracting and pray to God for wisdom, guidance and courage to pursue the things he has planned for you…just pray, once a day, every day or all day long about everything and anything.
God loves you, he is with you and he would like nothing more than to hear from you. To show you just how much he wants to be with you he sent his one and only Son into to the world to be sacrificed for you, so that you could turn to him anytime…don’t fill your time with everything except God. Start each day with God and everything else will be ok.
