Wanted to share my quiet time from yesterday...a little long:
Quiet Time Nugget from Colossians 2:8
The Message: "Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings."
It is always amazing to me that the more we possess, the more w
e crave. If we have a nice house; we want a nice house. If we have a great marriage; we look at other's marriages and find ours lacking. If we have a great job; we are continual looking for another job with a higher salary to fulfill us. If we have dreams; we are constantly looking to God to make them all come true.
None of these things in and of themselves are bad, but when do we just become content? When do we look at our life and say, "God there is nothing else I could want for...Thank you?" I have been trapped in that thought pattern way too often and I know it is because I am taking my focus off of God.
Jesus was the ultimate gift to me and when I forget all that He has done for me, then I desire more and more. The truth is that no one or no nothing can ever bring me the joy that following God wholeheartedly could ever bring.
