I'm sorry. I don't post as often as I want to. I hoped that I would be able to post at least every other day if not everyday. And for not accomplishing that, I'm sorry.
Sometimes I wonder if letting you know more about me, like my age, would help people understand. Would they understand that I'm really busy everyday of the week, that sometimes my life is bombarded with things filling every minute of everyday?
Sometimes I truly ache to admit my age, my name, more about me, but I'm afraid. Afraid that people will despise my youth thinking I am making these things up. Afraid that they might admire me and give me all the credit when really, it should go to God alone. Afraid that people I know might see some of the things that I would share and that does scare me. Its easier to say things if I think that only strangers will see it. And I'm afraid that I might want to share these things so that I get credit...And that is the complete wrong reason to do something.
I wrote all the stuff above last night. Now that I reread it (especially the second paragraph), the first thing that comes to mind is what my preacher said this morning at church. He said that our schedule is something we should guard, protect, and cherish. It is something we should savoir. The first thing that should go on that calendar is time for God and time for family. We are the ones that fill our schedules. We cram as much as we can into a single day and then wonder what happened to all of our relaxation. Because of all this busyness, we begin to stress and hurry all the time. And when we are running behind, one of the first things we push aside is God. We tell ourselves that we'll have time for Him later, but later doesn't normally come. My thought on this is: if God is so important in our lives, why is He the first thing thrown out the window? My view is that if God doesn't matter to me, then why would anything matter? We wouldn't have any reason to be kind or caring. We wouldn't have any reason to be Christ-like because there would be no point. It wouldn't matter. I believe that you can choose to believe and follow God with all you've got or you can't. Its when we try to create an in between that we feel like we are being pulled in all different directions. So if we do choose to follow Him with our all, my question is why in the world is He the first thing we push aside? We have to choose between sports or church, that new premiere of that really awesome movie that your best friend invited you to or the church thing that same day at the same time.
What's your choice?
