I’ve decided no matter how saintly or Spiritually mature I believe others are, we all have faults, short comings, and insecurities. Many people are pushing themselves along in such a strong fashion, they don’t see the “walking wounded” sitting right beside them. This is a shame. There is a Christian contemporary artist: Brandon Heath, who sings “Give Me Your Eyes”.
I seriously thought I was the only one…. There are some folks who come to church regularly, looking “right” and the whole 9 yards, but when asked about their lives, some say, “I still haven’t found my niche.” They may also say, “I am between niches/ministries/careers.” Yes, some of these are over the age of 50. Hmmmm…
I have heard some say they hope they will make it to heaven one day. Our pastor has a saying, “Are you a million % sure, if you died today, you would go to heaven?” I want to ask, as they have been in same church services I have been in, what?!?!? Do you listen to messages? Are you thinking other things while sermons are spoon fed? Yes, wake up, folks, the time is short till Jesus’ return. (Matthew 24: 36) I know, “but of that exact day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
I know of some who are putting off future goals. I know of some who plan to write books and get published “one day”. We don’t know how much time we have here, we better do what we can and desire to do while we still can. Right? I wonder about myself. I was so excited when God gave me my hubby, I typed pages and saved about 10 or more pages of a future book I’d like to write. I’ve not written it yet. Hmmmmm….emotions….
