W is for What if?
When I began thinking about my W post, I was planning on writing about waiting on the Lord. I had my bible verses picked out and the words formulated in my head. That was…before my walk this evening…my W word changed to “What if…”
What if today God is enough?
No distractions, no computer, no radio, no cell phone….just God and me??
What if today I stopped and asked God for direction? Now, I pray and talk to God during the day, but many times I find myself making decisions and plans without first thinking about the consequences. It is so easy to say yes to activities, only to find out that I either lack the stamina or time to complete them. Many times I end up cheating myself of my God time and/or my writing time.
What if today I loved others like God loves me? I try hard to be kind to others, but often catch myself with critical/sarcastic thoughts and yes, at times even words. Also, I wonder how many times a day I have contact with someone who is hurting, but too afraid to share their hurt.
Hmmmm….what if today, God is enough?
Addendum: After reviewing this post and I feel I need to clarify my message (can you tell I am still new at this writing stuff?)...the question what if today God is enough was meant more of a challenge to myself. Many times I put other things and people in front of my relationship with God. I often find myself wondering, why isn't God enough? Why do I continue to try and please others, yet neglect Him? Why do I chose things like the Internet over time in His word? I am not trying to add guilt to any of our lives and I apologize if that is what came across in this blog...just pondering is all...
