When one of my dearest friends said this many moons ago, I listened, but I don’t think I ever really heard… We tend to get so caught up in the ‘things’ we do ‘for God’. Next time you help to organise that charity event, go to that retreat/camp or help out at church – ask yourself “Am I busy with the things of God, or the God of things?”
I think if you do the things of God because you are in ‘tune’ with the God of things it’s perfectly fine, but the other way around…. I don’t think so!
So take a step back – what are you spending your time on, your energy on. I think once in a while we all need to refocus.
Go and crawl up onto His lap, lay against His chest and feel His heartbeat. If you got that right, only then, can you start to think about all the “things” you can go and do!
