I’m sure that question got your attention???? We took our Boxer to be neutered yesterday and it really got me to thinking. About half way there we thought,” Are we doing the right thing?” We concluded that we were and continued on. We picked him up late yesterday afternoon and he was feeling Terrible…. I mean capital T terrible. I got his bed fixed and checked on him all night long. I petted him throughout the night trying to show him some comfort. THEN about 4 am this morning it hit me. “What if I had been neutered?” Not in the sense of a dog but in life. Have you ever been Neutered. Something taken away from you that left you sick, broken-hearted, feeling despair. I’m sure we all have. What do we do when we lose something?? What if it is simply that job that we wanted and did not get, what if it was that bonus or raise we thought we were gonna get and didn’t, what if it was that cute fella we just knew was going to be ours but turned out to be someone elses OR maybe, just maybe, we lost our spirit. ( our power and desire to praise and worship) Have any of those things happen to you??? TODAY.. let’s press in to the one who gives us all things, blesses us with all things and who takes care of us in ALL THINGS…..
At church last night we were ask this question. “What is keeping you from being 100% with God?” At first I thought well nothing….. BUT is it??? I want you to ask yourself that question today. What might be holding you back from having the fullness of Christ in your life??? We say, oh yes, God can do anything, he is all this and all that, BUT do we live each day truly believing that??
We have all issues, some bigger than others ( or so we think they are bigger or smaller than others) Some of us battle depression, addiction, anxiety, fear, financial issues, sickness, and the list goes on. How much control do you really have over those battles??? 50% of the time, 70% of the time. What we learned last night is it all comes down to a “self” problem. We are so absorbed in ourselves that we simply can’t give it all to God. The world says it’s okay to go out and drink on saturday night and then praise God in church on Sunday…. BUT. is that what God’s word says???
So I ask you ( and me) again does God have 100% control of your life?????
“It is better to wear out than to rust out.” Think on that for the day.. Have a great week.
