Recently - I let my expectations of others cause me pain. Sometimes, those expectations are a return call or text message, maybe even a response to an email - and sometimes I let my impatience cause me frustration and anger.
Jesus made me think of so many who have been hearing His voice for years and sometimes they listen and act, and other times they don't. Sometimes they say to themselves "I'll do that later".. or "He's not important enough right now, I really don't want to hear what he has to say, or feel the conviction in my heart, that I know His truth will cause"...
How many times will you ignore Him? Put Him off? How many times will covet you the darkness in your own heart, that only provides short lived pleasures be it a self appointed sense of power, or physical pleasure whether it be from an addiction, or an unholy relationship or connection? How long will you withhold the forgiveness in your heart, toward your parents, a friend, a brother or sister, a coworker? How much longer will you let those things dictate your thoughts, your angst?
How many times? The day will come sooner than so many think, when He will no longer call out to you. The time will come when a crisis takes place, that you will have no one to turn to, especially the One who can transform the situation. Who will you call on then?
He loves you so much more than any words in the human vocabulary can convey, describe - beyond comprehension.
"Come all to me who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest"...
Please seek Him, please listen for His voice and respond - its not to late, but the time is growing short.
