I have been wracking my brain trying to come up with something I have truly sacrificed for God. I can't come up with anything. I walked away from a sinful life because it was empty and a lie. I turned to God for peace and a new beginning. He has given me both. What have I given him? I do serve often, but usually with the wrong spirit. I can't think of any of my convictions that I have down. I still get angry and rant at times, I still overeat, I don't have quiet time with God in the word. I was thinking about the story of the good samaritan, specifically the veggie tales version...the song they say as they pass the victim is "I'm busy, busy, shockingly busy. You've no idea what I have to do...I'm busy, busy, dreadfully busy. Much, much to busy for you!" That is me. I am flying everywhere, usually 5 minutes later than I intended. I could pass wounded people in a ditch a hundred times a day and never even see them. That is a truly relevant parable to us in today's world.(I guess they all are!LOL)
I am praying this week that I will make more time for God and people. I don't want to be so caught up in the busyness of life that I miss the people I am supposed to be Christ to. I want to sacrifice myself for Christ. True confession-I really don't want to at all...but I am praying that I will want to!! Have a great weekend!
