Planks and dust

Recently I returned from a trip to the beach. I had time to ponder things of God, I had time to reflect on what He is doing in my life and the life of my families (home and work) … but I didn’t do any of those things.

Is there anything inherently wrong with not taking the time to do these things? Not necessarily, until it is.

What I mean is this, God placed it on my heart to want a time to do those exact things and I wasted an opportunity. I could have grown closer to my savior, but “wasted” the time instead. Don’t get me wrong it was nice to “get out of my head” for a few days. But, my rest is nit the important thing in this. God’s relationship recharges us more than any “shutdown” time at the beach.

There is my plank removal service for the day. Got any dust to mention?

  1. Last week I wanted a special time with the Lord. Driving past Stone Mountain, I knew that is where I needed to meet Him. I payed the entrance fee and drove to the skylift. What a great place for a few short moments with God. I parked and while walking to the base of the mountain sadness filled my spirit. The skylift was closed. I got back in my car and heading toward the exit. A familiar voice shared. “I don’t need to go to the mountain, I only need to fall to my knees.”

    Now for my plank. I got in my car and the moment of desire of worship left, my time with Him was missed. After all I needed to get to my next ministry visit.

    I settled for busyness over worship.

    Blessings,

    Ralph
