A couple weeks ago I was listening to Air1, the DJ was talking about something that struck me. He said "If you think that Jesus + something else is going to make you happy, you better think again!" (not exact wording...I'm giving you my interpretation!) It's so true! I've been guilty of this from time to time. If I had Jesus and a friend who was perfect-then I'd be happy. If I had Jesus and super cute clothes-then I'd be happy. If I had Jesus and the perfect body-then I'd be happy. These are all thoughts I'm sure many of you have thought. The thing is, Jesus stands alone! He won't share the spotlight, and he won't let you put Him on the back burner. I'm grateful that He's patient with me! Boy, do I need it! I'll catch myself thinking about something that will "make me happy" when in actuality, the thing that brings true happiness is free for the taking! A relationship with Jesus Christ. Call me preachy, Jesus Freak, weirdo, I don't care! I'm all of those things and proud of it! Nothing will satisfy your deep longing except HIM. That guy won't fill the hole in your heart-HE will. She won't be your best friend-HE will. Do yourself a favor and sit down! Surrender yourself to HIM. I'm talking to people who already have a relationship with Christ as much as I am the ones who don't! Sometimes we've been walking with God too long, we need to shut our mouths and be silent-let HIM do the talking for a change. We also need to remember that He's there-but we don't always see HIM.
Okay! I'm done with my "sermon"-thoughts?
