First time, in a long time

When was the last time you really, really talked to God about your life and your future? Maybe today is a good day to do that for the first time, in a long time.

If you are like me, we get caught up in life, work and living and we forget to step aside ever now and then and really have a communication with God. We say the same little prayer this morning as we did the last 100 mornings, thinking it is enough. If you are a parent, you know how desperately you want your children to confide in you and tell you want is really going on with their life. Sometime the “I’m good, I’m fine” just isn’t enough. You as a parent want to really know how they are. That is how God feels about us.

There are people who wait for some imagined event in their life to start being who they were meant to me. They say “when that happens, I will finally do this or that. Go back to school, get in shape, sell this buy that, clean up this, change that habit, spent more time ,,,,,etc., etc.” If your child came to you and said, “dad, I am waiting for this to happen before I change this,” As you look into your child’s eyes, your advice would be, “don’t wait, do it now.”

That is what God would say to you and me, don’t wait, do it now.

Maybe today, for the first time, in a long time, you step aside and really tell God what’s going on and tell him your dreams, your fears, and your goals and then listen within your heart for his reply. KT
