I watched a Francis Chan video yesterday
that re~opened my eyes..
about Gods view on Priority
'I know what you are doing. I know you aren't cold or hot.
I wish you were either one or the other!
But you are lukewarm.
So I am going to spit you out of my mouth.
'You say, "I am rich. I've become wealthy and don't need anything."
But you don't realize how pitiful and miserable you have become.
You are poor, blind and naked.
'I correct and train those I love. So be sincere, and turn away from your sins.
Oh my gosh.. the last thing I want to do
is to be spit out of my Heavenly Fathers mouth..
because I could not choose between the
things of this world, verses the
love for my God..
How many times do we give more thought
and concentration to the things of this earth
than the Love and Word of my Father..
How much more passion do we give to
the status of our lives,
the houses we live in, the cars we drive,
how our kids dress and act
our position at work,
and so on and so on.......
When in the Big Sceam of things
NONE of it matters,,,
those are all things that our
heavenly father has made for us
and yet we place so much more value on them,
and spend day in and day out worrying about
these thing, and working hard and making them
better, when our hearts and minds should be
on the Lord.
My family has always been typical
middle class..living pay check to pay check
like most of you..
I dont live in a big house, I dont
drive a new car, and I have never
been a "Name Brand Girl"
and either are my children.
So that scripture that says~
" I am rich"
I never felt it applied to me.
Yet we live in the richest country in the world,
we dont lack for much,
our roof over our heads is not a card board box.
Our dinner does not come from a hand out at the corner.
And I have NEVER said to the Lord
"I dont need you"
are you kidding me !
But how often when I do need something
is he the first place I go~or just when all else fails..
I want to be HOT for GOD !
Love and Thank him for
the life he has given me,
love the life and things he has given me
and give them more value and
importance than the one
who loved me enough to
share with me his creations on
Not for me to love
it more than Him.
Thank you Lord for using
Francis Chan and his video
to open my eyes.
I love you Lord..
