Random Thoughts With Stu

This past week I have made a sad, but too often true, observation: When God does amazing things in my life, I am quick to be thankful but I am also quick to forget.

What I’ve noticed is that the everyday busyness of life (work, family, kids, friends, house work) has a way of drowning out the incredible things God is doing in my life. My focus is constantly being drawn away from God's movement in my life. The result is that my mind begins to think, "God is not working in my life." The reality is that God is working, but I am allowing the everyday things to push the remembrance of God's great love out of my mind.

My response is that daily I need to carve out (and protect) time away and alone with God so I can be reminded of the special gifts He is constantly giving that, with a hectic pace, often go unnoticed.

I invite you to let me know what you think.

  1. Hey Pastor Stu,
    I agree with you. It's so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life & push God aside. If we don't consciencely & physically set aside time for God, we never will. It's not in our nature. Thanks for your comments & reminder to guard our daily quiet time with God
