Recently for our Anniversary my sweetheart took me to the beach. He isn’t especially fond of swimming in the ocean, but I am. I love riding the waves and he really keeps an eye on me from the shore. I was so busy riding the waves, I couldn’t believe how far I had drifted from him. He is my protector and I could see him looking for me. I hurried back to shore knowing how concerned he was.
Recently my life has been extremely busy. I’ve had some complicated work to do and many days I hate to admit it, but I had not been praying like I should. Slipping away…. drifting… that’s the word. Then, I heard a message on the radio and during a segment on hymns, the preacher said the words…..”Prone to wander Lord I feel it… Prone to leave the one I love… Here is my heart Lord, take and Seal it…. Seal it for thy courts above. ” Suddenly, I felt the Lords overwhelming presence with me. Oh how wonderful and sweet it is to have him with me. How ashamed I was for wandering so far from him. He is so good to me to remind him to come and talk to him. He brought me back to shore so to speak. My desire is to know him and to want others to know him.
I have heard that if the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy. That is so true.
My take away from this is very simple… I can just hear my Mother say it…. SLOW DOWN!
