Life is busy. I miss my husband. I miss my kiddos. I need some family time. I need some Jesus time.
I work full time, I’m a full time Momma, a full time wife, and we hold church in our garage 3 times a week. At this present time we are trying to get our new church building up and active, we have graduations, birthdays, revivals, and chicken auctions to attend.
I know that at times I create this illusion that I have it all together.
I’m the pastor’s wife after all. 😉
But did you catch a very important word in there?
“Woe to the obstinate children,”
declares the Lord,
“to those who carry out plans that are not mine,
forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit,
heaping sin upon sin;
who go down to Egypt
without consulting me;
who look for help to Pharaoh’s protection,
to Egypt’s shade for refuge.
But Pharaoh’s protection will be to your shame,
Egypt’s shade will bring you disgrace…
…They say to the seers,
“See no more visions!”
and to the prophets,
“Give us no more visions of what is right!
Tell us pleasant things,
Isaiah 30:1-3,10 (emphasis mine)
Illusions are not a good thing. Illusions are not from God.
God is TRUTH. God is CONSTANT.
And the truth is right now that I need to get more intentional with my family time and especially my Jesus time!
Scripture says (and this is Jesus speaking) in Matthew 11:28-29
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
So this weekend, I am going to do just that. I am going to say “No” to things that simply pass away, and “Yes” to things that are everlasting.
The life I sow into my children and the love I pour into my relationship with my husband is forever…and my relationship with Jesus Christ is ETERNAL.
