I could easily writing about the ache that I have for heaven. There’s not a day that goes by that I wonder, is today the day that Jesus will call His church home? Is today the day in which I will meet my Lord and Savior.
However, after reading Wanda’s post at “The Watered Soul” it got me to thinking about a different kind of ache. It’s the ache that I have in the midst of the busyness and pressing demand of life to be able to make the time to do things I love to do, to do things that really matter and make a difference.
Oh I feel that ache often. It’s the card that I don’t send because I don’t have time to sit down and write a few words of encouragement. It’s the phone call I never make because I know the person likes to chat and I only have a few minutes. It’s the doily that sits uncompleted on the table because I don’t sit down and take the time to finish it. Or I don’t take a couple of hours to go to the park with my camera and snap some photos of God’s creation. I feel that ache when thoughts that are going through my head that I don’t take the time to put pen to paper and really listen to what the Lord is teaching me.
Lord…show me how to get off the merry-go-round and LIVE life and not just continually run at a frantic pace, accomplishing stuff that’s of little consequence and of no eternal value. Show me how Lord, show me how.
