Okay so I am trying to make this a habit, yes to post after church my reflections and thoughts as to what Joe or Dave or whoever the guest speaker may be.
Tonight was a good old flat smack in the face. Yep God was definitely talking to me. You see I lead a CRAZY BUSY life style. I really mean CRAZY BUSY. Even Chris wonders how I do what I do. Before I just thought that is how life is… busy. Tonight however Joe talked about how God calls us to SLOW DOWN. What you mean I really need to sit in the quite everyday? Who has time for that? HELLO… God says too. Joe of course referenced how several times it says that Jesus went to be with the Father. Aren’t we suppose to try and be like Jesus? So if Jesus did it why can’t I? When do I have time to be quite and be in the quite? Right now I totally don’t have the answer but I do know that God has smacked me in the face to MAKE time and do it.
The other part was to PUSH THROUGH. So even though I am going through a period in my life where things are CRAZY BUSY after I am quite and hear from God I am to push through all the hard stuff, like life in general these days. I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel seems to be getting longer and longer or so it seems. That is probably because I am not pushing through but whining about lack of sleep, dealing with Eman’s delays, listen to Kendra’s mouth never stop while she is awake, and dealing with my household duties. Jesus PUSHED THROUGH the most horrifying death for me and I am complaining about the little things in life.
So I would say that the FREE series is really challenging me. Usually when we have done these church wide programs they haven’t been this challenging for me. This one is biting me in the butt. God is really showing me a lot of things. I am so glad though that he has reminded me how important it is for me to listen to him by SLOWING DOWN and how even though life seems tough right now to PUSH THROUGH. I will be working on getting a plan down to be quite with God. Not sure how it is going to go yet but I hope to keep you posted.
How about you? Do you feel God talking to you in anyway through church?
