Children are busy. I have a four year old granddaughter, Jayla. Whenever she comes to spend time with me I am delighted. Upon waking up each day, she enters my room and gives me a kiss on my cheek. Next, she gets washed up, dressed, and goes downstairs for breakfast. After that she enjoys watching her favorite shows on my Ipad. However, the minute I leave the room, she drops what she is doing and pursues me. She becomes my shadow. She goes from one thing to another. I am always after her to finish what she is doing before going on to the next thing.
My sister's, it's time to mature. Mature in your spiritual life, temperament, and especially in your desires. Desire what God has for you. "Not my will but thy will be done, oh Lord." Let your experiences and life lessons mature you before you seek your next assignment from God.
Ephesians 4:14 says, "don't be like children tossed to and fro." Don't be so enthralled with a next project or assignment that you forget to complete the previous one you were called or asked to finish. the Bible says, " he who has begun a good work in you, will be faithful to complete it.(Ephesians 1:6). Allow the Holy Spirit to remind you of any unfinished work that the Lord has called you to.
In order to mature, we need to focus on our God-given tasks, no matter how basic or humble, and allow God to complete in us what He has begun. Sometimes we focus on the things that we feel will get us the most attention, but we must understand that every deed we are asked to complete gives us an opportunity to serve others. We must remember that the greatest among us, are those who choose to serve not expecting anything in return.
It's going to be a fabulous day! "Don't Forget To Say Your Prayers"
