As i heard the beep this morning, i got to thinking. This machine works allot like God. (Stay with me on this.) When things get "shaken up" in my life, first i get annoyed, "God this isn't going right." (As if i need to tell him). Secondly, i rant (not proud of it, but i do). "God this is so frustrating! Why would you let this happen?" Then thirdly, i get sad and whine, " God, can't you see me? Why me?" Most of the time after that, (i'm pretty exhausted), and i can start to see things a little clearer. i would save myself so much heartache if i just went to him first.
But we are human, and we thrive on emotion. Sadly allot of us wear it as a badge. We just can't wait for someone to ask what's wrong, so we can unload on them about how unfair our life is, or how hard we have it. i think we need to remember that human emotions are fleeting. There is no guarantee that 5 minutes from now you will feel the same way. But God is never changing; Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. We can call on him anytime and he will be there; Psalms 145:18 The Lord is near to all that call on him . . . ".
So the next time things get "shaken up", don't wait for the loud beep. Go to him and say, "you called?" and let the blessings begin.
