Have you noticed when life is predictableÂ we grow complacent.Â Do you findÂ yourself growing stale or lukewarm?Â In this state of mind… time elapses without notice.Â Sunsets occur without distintion and we become robots.
It has been said that “Sin keeps you from your Bible and your Bible keeps you from sin”…. Oh how true. If the enemy of our soul can’t make us bad… he will make us busy.Â We become too busy to do the main thing… PRAY AND READ OUR BIBLES!Â WEÂ GET TO BUSYÂ TO GO TOÂ GOD AND TO RESTLESS TOÂ WAIT AND LISTEN FOR HIM TO SPEAK TO US!Â This is a dangerous place for us as Christians….
Dependency upon God becomes less noticeable to others andÂ our testimony is much less effective, if not useless.
Just as an example… The Lord compares us to Clay….
Take a cloudless day… imagine no rest from the sun, the clay becomes cracked and brittle…with no shelter from the harshness of the day… clouds become a welcome friend.Â Rain becomes a blessing and a refreshing and renewal. The clay can then leave a footprint.
Lord, I want to have your footprint in my heart. I’m asking you to use the water of your word to soften my heart and mold me.
So it is… with the promise of forgiveness and the direction from our Lord… we can follow him…placing our footsteps into his. … Sunshine sweet from our Lord lifts us to our destiny of a new day IN HIS PERFECT WILL.

“GIVE UNTO THE LORD THE GLORY DUE UNTO HIS NAME: BRING ON OFFERING, AND COME BEFROE HIM; WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS.”
