Stranger than fiction…

by madiniven

Today has been a strange day.

I cannot explain what has happened this day..

Let me start off with what pressed the “play” button of this whirlwind of craziness.

I went into the post office today to get a stamp… so I could mail a letter from my mom… to my sister.  I promise you right now that every person who walked into the office area had some sort of problem.. no, not a mental problem.. I just can’t explain it..

I felt as though I was at an insane asylum.

The only two fairly normal people in there was a guy who looked, and had the voice of a preacher… and me.

As I walked out.. I felt like I had been in some strange dream world.. like the movie Alice in Wonderland. It was quite strange…

I was driving on the road… and it seemed as though every one was in a hurry.. now I know this may be normal for you to see people high on road rage …but not to me. Every car in front of me was passing one another.. and it looked like a wreck  could occur at any given second.

I kept getting so frustrated.

So.. to keep my frustration from interfering with my driving.. I kept thinking(out loud) .. “Why can’t we all just slow down.. their is no need to rush.. You’ll get were you need to be in due time.”

Sometimes during the day.. I want to spend time with God. I want to slow down.. and just sit with Him..and just listen. But I rarely do…Except for when I am at church.

Instead of talking with our Creator.. I usually watch t.v. or get on facebook.

So.. I am done with Facebook.. until April 25.  Yeah.. I know that’s a random date.. but I have my reasons. I wish I could say that I am done with t.v. too… but I am hooked on LOST.. but seriously… life is too short not to have a relationship with the God of everything.

I think we take for granted our relationship with God. He is  ready for a deep, intimate relationship with you.. and me. But you have to let go of the things that are separating you from God.

Ephesians 1:15-19 ( Again… I know this verse is long.. but read it..)

“That’s why, when I heard of the solid trust you have in the Master Jesus and your outpouring of love to all the followers of Jesus, I couldn’t stop thanking God for you—every time I prayed, I’d think of you and give thanks. But I do more than thank. I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!”
