My sister started a blog! Her words come straight from her heart, which is why I am so excited to share this post with you today. Head over to Very Meri Blog and give her a follow! I know it would mean the world to her. 🙂
Picture your day so far.
How has it gone? How have you made room for Jesus? Is He one of the first things that you think about in the morning, or do you rarely think about Him at all? Do you read the Bible because of guilt? Do you read it because you think you have to? Or do you read His Word because you want to? Have you made time to spend with your precious Heavenly Savior? Or are you just going with the flow in this high-tech, hi-stress lifestyle that we live in today?
God is there when you aren’t. He is always someone to fall on. He is your rock, comfort, and shelter.
Maybe you’ve had a long day at work or school. Your co-workers or classmates are especially annoying that morning. They tease you and get on your nerves. If you were not thinking about what God would have you to do, then Satan would have called that a perfect morning to be a weak light for Jesus. But instead, you ignored them, and stood up to them. You can be that light.
But let’s say this morning you were very grouchy. You were rude, obnoxious, and cranky. You bang around the house when you get home. You turn on your phone and scroll through Facebook for hours. You are just moping in your own misery. You finally go to bed, but guilt washes over you. You realize that didn’t read your Bible. You haven’t spent time with God. You haven’t prayed.
How many times have we been in these situations, friend? How many times do we get caught up in the sin of this world? God is still there for you, even when you make mistakes. However, we can avoid some of these mistakes by spending time with Him daily. Even if you can read your Bible for just a few minutes, or pray for 2 minutes, God is still ready for you to talk to Him. He is ready for you to confide in Him. He is ready for you to have a deep, intimate relationship with Him. God is your Abba, Father, and He is always ready for you.
The question is, are you ready for Him?
