Escape

Escape—your breather or your cop-out? 


Escape with me for just a while

For that is what I can offer

A respite. Brief.

An illusion. Fading.

A trap. Seductive.

 

Escape with me for just a while

Do not contemplate, do not hesitate

I’m right here, now.

A lure.

Beckoning.

Teasing.

Tempting.

 

Escape with me for just a while

Escape…

What am I allowing the thief to rob and destroy in my life?

The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy.

John 10:10

What am I allowing the thief to rob and destroy in my life?

• Peace – My anxiousness in wanting to get an unreasonable amount of things done within one day.

• Joy – Taking things for granted by sometimes by forgetting that EVERYTHING can be taken away. God gives, and He can take away.

• Relationships – I think this is the devil’s forte for me. I sin through my blindness in failing to see how Jesus sees other rather-difficult-to-be-liked people.

Oh! How we love the forgiveness of God for our sins, but hate to be called by God to forgive those who have sinned against us.

Wise words from my senior pastor

My senior pastor shared this with the staff during one of the morning devotion to get us to reflect:

‘Am I walking with Jesus? Am I obeying Him? Am I trusting Him? Focus on NOW. Then you don’t need to worry about the future.

Keep the main thing the main thing
Don’t let small little things throw us off.

Reminding self to remind self.

Preaching to self

Therefore we must read the Bible, pray, grow in Him, cling to God even when things are going well in our life.

For it builds a great foundation which we never comprehend how much we will need—when trials hit us persistently in the face and cuts our heart.
