It’s funny how you are blessed, and how sometimes, we get what we ask for and still complain about it.
Here’s to learning how to be content, grow from the present opportunity, and to view it in a more positive light.
For the past few months, I’ve been promising God to spend more time with Him and in His word. The past month or so, I’ve been “too busy”. You know how that is.
In the past 10 days, I’ve had one evening work commitment and one social get together. Otherwise, it’s been work, come home, and stay home alone. The upcoming week will be more of the same as friends are out of town and work is slow. I’ve let myself become lonely and discouraged. Sadly enough, I almost missed the blessing.
I firmly believe that God has given me this time, taken away distractions, and provided me with an opportunity to spend time with Him. Over and over I’ve told Him that He’s my first priority and I want to get closer to Him before a man and before I change jobs. It’s funny that I asked for this, indirectly, God provided and like a typical human, I wasn’t content.
