Don't leave home without HIM!

I wanted to share something from my devotional book that I thought was so good.  Such a good reminder that it is us who looses sight of him and who can so quickly get caught up in the things of this world, instead of staying focused on him, our first love.

"Are you still in love with Jesus?  Before you remember anything, remember him.  If you forget anything, don't forget him.

Oh, but how quickly we forget.  So much happens through the years.  So many changes within.  So many alterations without.  And, somewhere, back there, we leave him.  We don't turn away from him...we just don't take him with us.  Assignments come.  Promotions come.  Budgets are made.  Kids are born, and the Christ ...the Christ is forgotten.

Has it been awhile since you stared at the heavens in speechless amazement?  Has it been awhile since you realized God's divinity and your carnality?

If it has, then you need to know something.  He is still there, he hasn't left."

-Max Lucado-

May the Lord Jesus Christ himself...encourage you strengthen you in every good thing you do and say.  2 Thessalonians 2:16

He wants to be our first thought, our last thought and every thought in between.  He is the giver of life and everything we have and are.  Don't forget to take Him with you everywhere you go.
