Hey yo, readers o’ glory. (Don’t ask what’s with the weird talking all coolio/medieval combination. All I can say is I have no idea– and I’m chalking it up to Friday randomness.)
It time for Five Minute Friday here at 7 Days Time. For those of you new to our little hangout, each Friday I link up with Lisa-Jo, our favorite Gypsy Mama. She gives us a prompt. Then we write.
It’s a great change of pace from thinking and writing of normal blog posts days. Because with this post, there is no over-thinking, excessive editing etc. We let our fingers flows, going with our gut and going with God.
Today’s prompt: HERE
97…98….99…100. READY OR NOT, HERE I COME!!!
Playing hide-n-seek was one of my sister and I’s favorite pastimes on the farm as little girls. Ok, well other than chores, it was kind of one of the only pastimes. But those days are behind us and now, I play a different game.
One with Jesus.
He is chasing after us. Pursuing us. Pushing us to take a leap of faith, embrace the here and now with all we have.
Honestly, it’s not quite as easy as the hide-n-seek games of my youth.
Sometimes I run. Hard. God is going to come after us, not in a scary way, but in a loving “come-here-I-have-something-to-show-you” kind of way. But occasionally, I don’t feel ready for him to come here to me.
Other times, I like to live in pretend land and stay hidden from Him… Like He doesn’t know where I am. (Denial is much more than a river in Egypt. Just saying. 🙂 )
Yes, it’s hard when life seems to be in the way of saying Yes to God. But as usual, there is great news: GOD MAKES THE RULES.
So let’s take that to heart today, knowing that no matter where God is calling us to, He makes the rules and He always plays fair.
He wants us to get in the game.
So open your eyes and get ready to play.
Because ready or not… Here He Comes.
Five Minute Friday always makes me smile… I honestly never know where this post will end up and it is always fun to find out. Sigghh. Good times.
What did you think of today’s post? Do you find yourself in the game with God as He pursues you? If not, what keeps you from playing? I would L-O-V-E to hear from you– be bold and leave a comment below!
I pray that you have a marvelous weekend… Thank you for your support of this ministry. Seriously. It blesses me!
Beckoning Him Here,
“And now we’re all here in God’s presence, ready to listen to whatever the Master put in your heart to tell us.” ~Acts 10:33 (MSG)
