How much time have you spent…
– with friends
– watching TV or in front of the pc
– eating, drinking, sleeping
– doing sport
– on the phone, writing sms
– playing games
– complaining, gossiping, bragging
– dreaming without knowing where to start
– hoping and despairing
– making un-kept promises
– thinking you are insufficient?
When last have you…
– spent some quality time with friends
– had a lovely meal
– a warm bath – just because you can
– enough sleep
– looked at nature and been in awe of GOD
– read your bible
– spent time with GOD
– loved like JESUS … like there was no tomorrow but eternity waiting
– asked forgiveness and said you are sorry
– repented, eyes full of tears, on your knees before GOD
– spent a night in prayer
– told someone about JESUS?
I guess you are starting to see where I am heading!
Most people feel, like they are missing out. It is the stuff of the first list, they relate to. Are you one of them? And then they’d laugh about the second list, as they’d agree with some of the stuff and think the GOD-stuff ridiculous.
Well, if you are… feel invited to read on – this is for you!
If you are not… if you are just a Christian who feels he/she hit rock bottom and would just finally need some REST…then this is for you too
The quality of life doesn’t get determined by the things we do or do not get to… it is determined by the perspective we have on it… by the dimension we live in and by our focus and the sense that that focus gives our lives!
Try focussing on things one at a time.
What are you living for? Is it really … are you sure… make sure.
Will this give you peace beyond understanding … joy independent of circumstances… and unconditional love? If so… it is worth it. If not so… then be sure, you will continue longing…it will never be enough.
In case you were wondering who could give the above mentioned requirements… JESUS can.
IF you make him LORD in your life!
Perhaps Jesus is Lord in your life… then as yourself the questions in the second block…they will help you get back on track.
After you found out what you are living for… try to focus… not on the dreams that go with it… but on each single step up the hill that lies before you… upon the flowers and grasses next to the path you take… on the air you breathe and on the beauty that lies ahead.
Then walk it… step by step. But never forget… it is not about the things of the way… it is about the relationship… the focus on the One, that is the centre of it all. It is about knowing Him…seeking Him…feeling his heartbeat and sharing in His mind and heart. It is not about you.
We often make the mistake to make it all about us. It is all about HIM. HE is LORD. HE is JESUS.
You think I’m not speaking the truth… then give it an honest and full-hearted try and experience it for yourself!
The Bible tells us in the book of Romans 10:9 “ if you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.“
