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?
