So, I had a bad day. Friday. And, to top it all off, some mean old man yelled calling me a stupid a** b**ch. Yes.He.Did. From his big honkin’ truck next to me. ‘Cause I wasn’t driving fast enough for him. I drive plenty fast, and I have a ticket from last Monday to prove it thankyouverymuch.
My girlfriend, Bonnie, knows how to make a girl feel better.
“You are a SMART a** b**ch,” she reminded me.
She made me laugh. I needed that J
I sulked on Friday. But, I assure you, I didn’t stay there.
On Saturday, I decided to indulge into some much needed me time. My sitter arrived, and I headed for Barnes and Noble then Panera to read.
‘Lo and behold, if God didn’t try to make MY time HIS time. The nerve. He started asking me questions like, “Do you want to know MY plans for you?” “Do you trust ME?” “Have you stopped to think that I may want you to do something for ME?” “Are you seeking ME first?” “I thought one of your New Year’s resolutions was to surrender ALL of YOU to ME.”
Um, can’t we discuss these things at a later time? I have an appointment with a latte and Edward Cullen. Oh, and smooth one throwing in one my resolutions.
But, He wouldn’t let up. He was relentless.
And, He reminded me how relentless He is about loving me.
I can remember when I was worried about John Henry, and my mom told me, “Don’t you know that Jesus loves John Henry even more than you do?”
It’s hard to think about that kind of love as it relates to our own selves.
All of this being said – mostly by Him – I’ve decided to seek Him first. He will give me EVERYTHING I NEED from day to day if I make His Kingdom my primary concern.
If and when I fail to do so, I’m sure He’ll catch up with me over a latte. He’s good like that.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33
