It never ceases to amaze me how “the word” and message for the day follows where I am in life. I missed my devotional TAG yesterday because I was caught up in “life” “work” and well complete “overwhelm”. I chose not to read – I told myself I did not have the time to do it. Today I read what I was suppose to yesterday and low and behold it was right on target for yesterday. If I had have read that I would have cleared out a lot of my anxiety but NO I had to do it MY WAY and not be Faithful! Most of the day I felt “down” “alone” “lost” and ready to “quit” the running around, getting it all done, taking care of everyone else… and just needed out of the “overwhelm”. Had I read and been Faithful to my TAG in the morning – well those feelings might have still been there but I would have been armed with the tools to get rid of them all and be the best I can be!
I need to have better commitment to my relationship with Jesus, my TAG. I need to protect it and not put it second or lower in my life. Do you ever feel the same way? I mean if Jesus is so Faithful to us, and look at what he has on his shoulders, why should we not meet him with the same level of Faithfulness? Yes life is crazy, yes work and careers are crazy, and for sure yes family is crazy – but the one secure, stable you can always count on place is in your relationship with God – so I want to commit to being more Faithful – Jesus will meet me anywhere for our TAG time – he will meet me anytime of the day so there is nothing holding me back from honoring that relationship with as much dedication!
Dear Jesus – time and time again you show me examples of how you are here for me and time and time again I falter to to turn to you while I am lost in the moment. Thank YOU for being so Faithful in our relationship and never letting go of me! We are all blessed to have you as our loving Father and I pray I can begin to realize you are right there and turn to you and be as Faithful. Lord I am so Thankful for all you have brought into my life and for the “fixes” for the things that get messy along the way – I am thankful for the strength you have given me and I pray to not forget I cannot do it all on my own! Lord bless those around the world that are lifting their hands to you and please wrap your arms around those that are a bit lost and have not turned and “looked up” just yet as they need you too. In your name I pray – AMEN!Learn More
