Title: Encouragement
Post by: troossien1 on July 12, 2012, 11:59:07 PM
Hey all,
I don't have any prayer requests, philosophical sayings, or incredible testimonies, but I do have something I believe that should be said. God is so great, isn't he? The maker of the heavens and earth humbled himself to die for us to bring eternal life to sinners like us, that  is enough of a statement to blow you away in it self. But to then say that he wants a personal relationship with us it is just really exciting.

That is actually not the point of my post. I just wanted to share an observation of mine. My life has been so busy and fast paced that I don't have time for many differen things that would require my attention. And when I do get a break, the last thing I want to think of is giving myself more things to do. This is effecting my speritual life in (needless to say) a negative way. I have seen many other people running around me and i find Myself thinking if they are in the same boat as I. Life today is all about having our attention. I have realized that to give attention to my savior is the least I could do, to give time to the one who set worldly pleasures aside to become blameless in order to give the most precious gift a pure life for a sinners life. The death that tore the veil so that I may come to him in worship freely through prayer and engaging In scripture or how ever you show your thanks. I think that in this consuming world we live in we take for granted the gift he gave us. So I wouldike to encourage you all and pray for you this week as well as ask for your prayers for priorities and focus or the right things. Thankyou guys.

I can use a reminder about many things at least every other day. Maybe every day. Maybe every hour.
