The Next Big Thing

We expend energy on many things. Not all bad either. Lots of worthwhile ventures.

We can get caught up with the future though. Don’t read me wrong, I am an advocate for setting some goals, having a dream and having a desire to head somewhere on purpose. Yet I also see a danger when this becomes our main focus, the source for our drive in life. To put it simply, there may be times when we chase the next big thing rather than chasing after the one who can helps us in our pursuit of that next big thing.

Let’s make sure that God is the big thing in our life that we chase.

Remember that it is God who gives us the power to create wealth. It is God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask, think or imagine, according to His power that works in us. Not God working according to our power in Him.

What’s the next big thing? I don’t honestly know. What I do know is this, whatever I think it may be my responsibility is clear ~ I will continue to pray about it like it depends on God and work hard towards it like it depends on me.

Not Losing IT: Distractions

I am not perfect. I am aware of some failings I have (even without others pointing them out).

However, I am determined to not lose IT.

I do get distracted. I recognise that am not always as focused as I want to be.

Following on from yesterday’s post – I just wondered whether we could have a time of online confession. Often at Church I’ll encourage the congregation to leave all the ‘stuff’ at the foot of the cross, after all Jesus encouraged us to cast our burdens on Him.

So…can you be honest…

…what distracts you from God?
…what gets in the way of you doing your best for him?
…what steals the time you want to give to God?

I’ll even start.

…my own self absorption. Thinking that ‘me’ time is a good reason not to spend time with God. I can do that quite a bit.

Now it’s your turn!
