A man was running late for a job interview. When he arrived, he couldn’t find a parking space. He prayed aloud: “God, if you help me find a parking space, I will go to church every Sunday, a Bible study every week, and be more charitable with my money. Amen”. Just then a parking space opened up right in front of the buildings entrance. The man said, “Never mind God, I found one myself”.

How many times have we sat in lectures or services and heard the pastor speak about LISTENING to God. The man in the above story loved speaking to God, but apparently was soooo busy with trying to get to the interview God gave him to begin with and asking for even further help to get in the door, he didn’t “hear” God. God spoke quite plainly to him, without even using words, God’s actions spoke for Him, yet the man could not hear because he was so pre-occupied. Speaking of getting things done in an orderly fashion….

We stay up late, get up early, avoid having fun and keep our loved ones waiting all for the sake of “getting everything done”. We tell ourselves that there will be plenty of time for all of the good things in life once we complete the tasks we have laid down for ourselves. Let’s be real here for a second people….once that list is cleared, we generally have already replaced all of the old tasks with new ones! Keep in mind, nothing is more important with your walk with Christ therefore nothing is more important than your true happiness. Your true completion. Try to remember friends, that the purpose of life is not to get everything done but to enjoy each step along the way. There will always be unfinished business to take care of, but at the same time all things, including our to-do lists, will fade away but the Word and Love of God will not.

Be Blessed,
Chris
