That has been me lately . Busy busy busy has been my theme. I wanted some spending money and I love to make things love to sell things. The doing of all that overtook my relationship with the Lord and what He wants to be in and through my life. In pursuit of the stuff I needed I got in a traffic accident and then suddenly nothing would sell and my husband was frustrated with my busy busy busy non financial producing life.
Backed in a corner He said I told you to stop waking up and getting out of bed to be busy. I wanted you to focus on me and what I wanted for your day. Stop the making and the selling and the busy focus on me.
He began to show me all I had missed with my focus on the wrong things. How I had dropped the ball on our relationship. The reality of it hit me like the death of a friend. I have actually been grieving all that He showed me I missed. It has been needful to grieve deeply so I will not do this again. I need to have a complete overhaul of my mind sets. Doing a 180 takes a heartfelt repentance and asking Holy Spirit for help.
I am getting a new level of understanding of walking in the Spirit. I need to deal with my life issues from the throne room and relationship with the Father. Message to self : Don't get busy fixing your own life .
On my knees and reading more bible are helpful to get ahold of the truth about this relationship I am in with Him.
But there is no alternative route to time in His presence, worship and prayer.
I think one religious habit that needs to be resurrected is the 3 times a day stop and connect with our creator. Weather it is in a quick bible read. a worship song, a prayer or even standing out in nature appreciating what He has created. A bit more attitude of gratitude for what is good in my life is in order.
