Are you giving a full-time God part-time commitment? You do realize he's working around the clock, in fact he's putting in overtime on your behalf? That's just how much he loves you! Just the mere fact that he would plan a beautiful love story of redemption for us all, speaks volumes. But who do you personally know that's willing to sacrifice their one & only son for you? ABSOLUTELY NO ONE
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
I'm appalled at how many people think that a relationship with God is a Sunday service from twelve until two once a week. Now come on, you know that's nothing more than a part-time lover at best. I mean ladies if your husband or boyfriend didn't call or text regularly & just checked in once a week for two hours you'd be highly disappointed.
I'd imagine that's how God feels too. He's taking care of us twenty four seven, watching over & protecting us daily. And what do we do to show our appreciation? We show up every Sunday to put our so called relationship on display for the world to see. While our bibles sit conveniently on the nightstand collecting dust. The sad part is that God wants intimacy with each of us he's just waiting on us to make the first move. And there is no double dipping allowed. He's wants all eyes on him, check it out.
"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded."
"For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God."
Ladies God isn't looking for a part-time lover. But instead he is looking for a woman after his own heart. He's looking for a heart connection with you & I. But how can we connect with him when we're so attached to the things of this world? The internet, our cellphones, tablets etc.
I'll be the first to admit I'm just as guilty as the next person. But each day I strive to do better at making God my number one priority & the number one lover of my soul. One thing I do know for sure is that God's love is unfailing & I just want to make certain that I fully partake in it. To God be the glory and honor!
1 Samuel 13:14
"But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee."
"And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave their testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will."
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
