Honesty, Human Nature, & A Prayer

An honest thought packed post about human nature and days when God does not come first. Can we all admit to having these days? More often than we would like? Yup, I think so. | Satisfaction Through ChristNot much to report from my (quiet) escape. I started my day off yesterday with a couple of dogs laying on my feet and snuggled up against me…they keep me company.

I decided to get the dust blown off of me with a (short) trip to the bank and McDonald’s for a cup of coffee (I get it from my mother)! I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was, seeing that it is Mickey D’s, anyway!

I prayed a lot yesterday. Praying for specific people, specific situations, and specific needs. The quiet enables me to do things I wouldn’t “make time” for at home.

But, the quiet also enables me to see (more clearly) the things that I make my idols or put before God. Most mornings my first thought is either eating, turning on the TV, or hopping on the computer….and I HATE that! My first thought every morning should be about my Lord and Savior, not some thing that has no eternal value.

But, I have to be honest…some mornings I don’t want to spend time with God. WHY!!!? How stupid of me! I wish my finite mind could really grasp the reality of what a priveledge it is to spend time with the God of this universe. I believe that if we all really understood how BIG He is, our worship, honor, and praise of Him wouldn’t be boring.

Christianity and Christ, himself, are not boring! It is our sinful nature to want other things and our discontentment that make our walk with Christ boring. I can honestly say that in the years that I have been saved, my life has been more full, more satisfying, more exciting than the 18 years without Him.

Thank you, Lord, for saving me…for choosing me to be Your disciple. Help me to make You number one in all that I do. Help me to realize that You are eternal and the things of this world are passing away. Help me to be a light to others and to walk in Your ways.
