God's answers so far...

In my last post I was pondering what my Pastor had preached on last Wednesday. Here's what I have heard from my precious faithful Father thus far. I have a best friend. How did she become my best friend? Time. Lots of time. Sacrificial time. Listening. Being available. Why did I do these things? Because I wanted to know this woman and I wanted her to know me. I pursued her and she pursued me. After a lot of time, listening, and effort we know each other forwards and backwards. That is what I need to do with the Lord. I need to pursue Him. He in turn will pursue me. I need to be available to Him. I need to make a sacrifice of time for Him. I need to read His Word. I need to inhale it's nectar, I need to feast upon it's Words. I need to hide those Words deep in my heart. I need to bask in His presence. I wise woman once said, " Whatever is important to you you will do well." In this case she was speaking about arriving to church on time. She was saying that if church was truly important to me then I will be on time. This has stuck with me for years! If my relationship with God is important to me then you will find me pursuing Him. My question in my last post was, "what is the next level of intimacy with God and what will it take to get me there?" I don't know the next level because I have been neglecting time with The One who will take me to the next level. What will it take to get me there? The sacrifice of my time is what it will take me. He's waiting. It's me that has wandered off, waiting for some holy relationship to just fall upon me without any effort from me at all. So I'm going to read my Bible again. I miss the days when I couldn't find it Sunday morning because I couldn't remember the last place that I read it! I don't want it to be waiting every Sunday morning safely in my church bag. I want roughed up leather binding from lots of handling. It seems so easy. The Lord says," Seek Me and you will find Me." Jeremiah 29:13. My biggest obstacle is unfaithfulness. Sigh, The Lord has His work cut out for Him! But He made me, He knows me, He loves me, and He is waiting for me! There you have it... I'm gonna read my Bible. I'm gonna be with Jesus! I'm gonna seek and I know I'm gonna find! Joyfully, Kathy
