Center Of Focus?

When you wake up in the morning, what's the first thing on your mind? School? That video game you stayed up late to play last night maybe? As the day progresses, what do your thoughts consist of? Are they, for the most part, centered on spiritual things, or are you still thinking about that new movie you want to see? These thoughts entered my head last night as I lay in bed thinking. I kind of talked to my brother about them and we both thought of something else too. How much time do you spend in God's Word a day? Ok, fine how about a week? You say, "Oh, I didn't have time," but you know in your heart that you chose not to make it your time. That is an excuse I say to myself way to often. When I'm getting ready for work in the morning, I always find time to update my Facebook and Twitter, but no, I don't have time to read a chapter or two in the Bible. Baloney!!!!!! I had plenty of time, I just didn't use it for that. It...wasn't important enough...I guess. That HAS GOT to change! How on earth do we expect to grow closer in our walk with Christ? Let me ask you something. You're best friend...why is he/she your best friend? You know a lot about that person don't you? You feel close to them too. The same goes with Christ. The Bible says "...If you draw nigh unto Him, He will draw nigh unto you...". So I encourage you...spend time in God's Word! These things have really convicted me and I'm determined to do them. God Bless!

In Christ,
Kevin

Very convicting and absolutely right. I always seem to find the time to do "my" thing, meanwhile neglecting the Lord...

Thanks for this post,
Josh
