Too Busy for God (Part 2) "The Story"

Too Busy For God 

(Be sure to read Part 1 first)
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.

In his opening address he said,

"We can't keep Christians from going to church."

"We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth."

"We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their savior."

Father-Time"Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken."

"So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.."

"This is what I want you to do," said the devil:

"Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining
that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.

Too Busy for God (Part 1)

I have found myself neglecting the blogosphere.

Christmas time seems to be the most busiest time of the year. I tend to make it too busy. The conclusion?... I put God on the back burner. It is evident in my lack of blogging.

When we are too exhausted on Sunday morning to go to church, it becomes a problem. Where are our priorities? Should we not live for God and make work, personal tasks, etc. the backburner of our life?

Surprise Ending

Once there were three little trees, all with big dreams. The first tree dreamed of being carved into a beautiful and ornate treasure box that would hold the greatest treasure the world have ever seen. The second tree dreamed of being fashioned into a great ship that would sail the Seven Seas. The third tree didn't want to leave its home on the mountaintop. "I want to grow so tall that when people stop to look at me," he said, "they'll raise their eyes to heaven and think of God."
