God just gave me a 'little nugget.' My husband and I are getting ready to leave for vacation in a few days. This got me to thinking about a few things.
Why is it that when people take a vacation they also take a vacation from God? So many people fail to pay their tithes for the week they are vacationing. Many people take a vacation from reading their Bible and praying. And what about attending church? There is no law that says that you can't 'attend' a different church in a different city while you are on vacation.
Does God take a vacation from answering our prayers? Does God take a vacation from protecting us? Doe God take a vacation from being our guide? I would say that the answer to all of these questions is a firm "NO!" God never sleeps...He never forsakes us! But we forsake Him all the time.
Now, I can say that I have never forgotten about paying my tithes while on vacation...I always make sure that I get them in to the church! I can't say the same for reading my Bible & praying or attending a church while out of town. I always seem to have good intentions, but when Sunday rolls around on vacation, I surmise that I just lay in bed or get up and get going 'on vacation.'
I am going to attempt to do a better job of walking the walk that I talk this year on vacation. I don't want to get to heaven and find that God has 'taken a vacation.' If God is ALWAYS with me...and He is...then why can't I always be with Him?
Thank you, God for giving me this little nugget this morning. With Your help, I know that I can do better this year and in the future. Amen.
Walking the walk and talking the talk,
