Recently I had the pleasure of seeing Christine Caine on TBN. She is so full of energy all the time and so in love with the Lord. Her message really hit me and I can’t let go of it. As she retold the story of Moses, Pharaoh and the ten plagues God sent, she focused one in particular – when God sent the frogs. Frogs were everywhere including their homes.
It is hard to imagine a situation like that. The people of Egypt were not happy and Pharaoh summoned Moses. He begged Moses to get rid of the frogs. The surprising fact is Moses let Pharaoh specify the time he wanted God to do it. His answer – tomorrow.
Picture your own home full of frogs and as the Bible stressed, even their beds. That would be so gross. I would want them gone immediately. Wouldn’t you?
Christine’s point has really made me think about my life. How many times do we want to do something and say tomorrow. Tomorrow I’ll start exercising, tomorrow I’ll spend time with my wife, tomorrow I’ll start my diet, tomorrow I’ll go to church, tomorrow I’ll spend time reading the Bible and praying. The list could go on and on.
As I stated when I started the blog, I am in the probably the last stage of my life. My goal has been spend my time productively and with purpose. I admit I have more aches and pains than when I was younger. My doctor keeps telling me to “listen to your body” and avoid certain yoga poses. Being limited doesn’t appeal to me, but I have learned she is right. That does mean I choose to sit idly. I am very active.
What about things you are putting off? Each day the news is filled with tragic stories of lives lost before they got to live out their tomorrows.
God gave us life so we could live it abundantly. Easter is a perfect time to remind ourselves how God loved us so much he sent his son to die for our sins. So if you are putting off spending time with God, don’t wait until tomorrow. He is the best friend you will ever have and he wants to have a relationship with you. Put your trust in him and he will take you on journey that will bring new life to you. He’s just waiting for you to call on him.
