Another day, another lesson… God is constantly teaching me lessons when dealing with my children, but this time He spoke through dream. In this dream, I was on a city bus with a little girl, and we were going to a gathering of some sort. When we got there, I connected with people who came on another bus. They were a little further away, so I walked over to them, leaving the girl with the other group. At first, I could still see her, but then she was gone. I had become so involved in the conversation with others that I forgot to check again or even have the girl walk over to me. I panicked and looked everywhere. I sought help, but nobody was able to help. She was gone and I was to blame. I woke up in panic and once I realized it was JUST A DREAM, I was fine and thankful. But, God showed me the dream was not about what it seemed, but about distractions. Sometimes we get so distracted with people, business, entertainment, education, just life in general. However, we have to remember that the ultimate task is to get in right relationship with Christ, NOW, while we have a chance. There is nothing wrong with having dreams and ambitions, but don’t let those things, I repeat THINGS, take priority. God is the priority. He is the reason we live, breathe, are able to get up and work, or not work, or whatever. As written in Galatians 5:7, “You were running superbly! Who cut in on you, deflecting you from the true course of obedience?” In other words, what is distracting you from doing right and staying focused on Christ. This hit home with me. I love my business, but if it ever becomes a distraction from my relationship with Christ, the business will no longer be worth it. This goes for anything and anyone. Let us be mindful of our intentions, our priorities, and the distractions in our lives. At the beginning, middle, and ending of our days, God should ALWAYS be the priority, not an afterthought. Amen.
As always, be blessed and be a blessing!
