Getting back on the path!
I haven't written anything in awhile. Many reasons
actually,but the biggest I think is one
that I am very embarrassed to say. I have been too busy for God!
It's the end of the year, work commitments, have been
very demanding and deadlines and projects have been on the go. Problem being
that God hasn't been apart of that. He has been a far distant memory and
someone who comes into my mind when I need Him.
Anyway, while I am now on leave and looking back at what
I have missed during my work commitments, I now see where God would have been
important in my life.
Everywhere! In fact, everything I did, was without Him. Every thought
I had didn't include Him. Every meeting I had,he wasn't there.
Isn't this against everything that a Christian is?
Isn't this completely against our core beliefs? I didn't partake and grow my relationship with Jesus.
But as I write this, I think to myself how many times I
have actually done this. Excluded God from my life. Thinking that everything I
do, is something I can do myself. I didn't need God. Why bother?
Is this something that's Christian's struggle with? Where
we try and do everything ourselves and completely ignore God in our lives.
Where He is calling us, we are too busy!
Where He is walking beside us, we are going in the other
direction, Where He is prompting us, we are are looking at ourselves for the
answer and not trusting Him for anything!
The thing is now....what do I do? I have ignored God and
not even thought about Him and now I feel bad and want to do something about
it? Who am I to decide when to be in a relationship with God and when!
I can't decide that, but that's why God is God!
God is so merciful, so loving, so gracious and so
forgiving that He doesn't look at the past, but He looks at the future. God
takes as as we are because He knows that we are sinners and He knows that, as
humans, we cock up many times and we are still going to cock up some more :)
The decision that is ours though, is that we need to
decide which path to follow. When we fall off the small and narrow path, do we
continue along the beaten track which leads away from God and towards
ourselves, or do we make the decisions to get back on the small track leading
to the King of love. If we choose the small track, we need to tell God where we
have been, what we have done and where we want to go. We need to ask for
forgiveness from where we have been and we need to commit to God where we were
heading and where we want to head now.
I think the next few blogs will probably follow this
topic as it fresh on my mind from where I have been and where I need to get
