21/08: Still Driving
Then I talked about Mr. Safety driving in the passing lane.
Today my mind is camped out on the Yield sign.
"Now then," said Joshua, "throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel."
So I pause today to think about the little gods I've established in my life. What takes precedence over my time with Jesus?
I spoke with a gentleman last week who said, "When I retire THEN I'll use my talents for Christ."
Life is busy. It always has been, it always will be. It's just deciding what we choose to be busy doing that defines our worship.
I've been busy downsizing lately. It's amazing what we end up giving away, throwing away or selling that at one point owned real estate in our life.
YIELD - means give way to arguments, demands or pressure; relinquish possession.
Lord, I give way and relinquish possession of my heart today. Simplify my life and focus my attention on worshiping You. I pray in Jesus' name, amen.
