What Have You Done for Me Lately?

Remember Janet Jackson in that diner dancing and talking with her friends about her man?  He just was not meeting her standards and being lazy.  So many ladies could relate to her and that song!

But I wonder……

What if God was the one asking “What have you done for me lately?”  Could you or I answer with pride?  Could we say, “I am doing all that you have asked me to do.”?  What is it that God asks of us?  He tells, does not ask but deliberately tells, us that we worship no other god.  He deliberately tells us that we love others and help those who are in need.  He wants all of our focus and attention to be on Him.  His attention is fully on us every second, of ever minute, of every hour, of every single day.  I fall very short in this department.  My focus gets caught up on tuition for my kid, my job, my husband, bills, and so on.  That equals worry.  Worry equals lack of faith that God will do what He has always promised.  It is our raw humanness that allows for worry.  What if we decided, that for the rest of the day, we would solely focus on listening to God and following what He has told us to do?  What would our days and nights look like?  How would our words sound?  What would the expressions on our faces be?  The answers we would give God to the main question of what have we done for Him lately would break His heart.  Is breaking His heart.

Are you focusing on Him like is focusing so lovingly and deliberately on you?  I’m not.  I try, but I get caught up in worldly things.  I need to do better at being better where God is concerned.

Be blessed and be a blessing.

Access

Last week, at work, I had the worst time trying to access the program I needed to get into because I did not get my password correct.  I tried various ways to get to it.  It finally locked me out completely due to so many unsuccessful attempts.  As I was calling for help from the proper person, I realized what I had forgotten.  I forgot to capitalize “God”.  Then I thought, “Man, this is so like life.  If you do not make God bigger than everything else, you ‘can’t get in.'”  I sat there and thought about this for the longest time.  As I drove home, I was still thinking about it.  I started thinking how often I “capitalize” everything else in my life.  Money.  Work.  Kids.  Home.  Car.  Phone.  Facebook.  Twitter.  Emails.  Bills. 

Look familiar?  I bet it does.  I know that it is when I make those things bigger than God that I become empty, confused, uncomfortable, irritable, frustrated, sad, mad, and a myriad of other not-so-good feelings.  It is not as if I just take God completely out of the picture.  I do, however, put those other things ahead of Him knowing full well that HE is what makes all those other things possible.  He should be first in line when it comes to my thoughts.  Unfortunately, I slip and fall in that area.  I just know that when I capitalize God, I can get into, get out of, complete, succeed, in everything I do.  I also know that I do not have to call the tech guy at work for that information.  God’s word is my tech help for my life.  Through God’s word, I will be able to get where I really want to be.  Where He really wants me to be. 

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.  John 10:27

God is my IT guy, and I do not mean my information technology guy.  I mean He is my IT guy.  He is it.  He is all the access I need Him to be.  And He will be as long as I remember to capitalize Him.
