1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3,4

Busy Bees...

How many of us have ever been too busy to focus on God? How many of us struggle to find even a hour of our day to talk to Him when He should be our closest friend? How many of us have a list of things to get done and say that we will talk to God once we're finished? We know that the list is never complete, and that there is always something to do, something to distract us from turning our eyes to Him. I know that I am completely guilty, especially lately. I had my last week of the school term last week and of course in my eyes I could see no time for God. I can talk to God anytime, but these assignments are due this week!

Now I am on holidays but I still have work to do for my childcare course. When will the business end? And when I have free time to relax, I'll be honest, I don't think of spending time with God. I think of watching a movie, reading a book or sleeping. How can I consider myself a faithful servant when I treat God like this?! I should get excited when I get the opportunity. Excited about the fact that the Creator of the Universe is listening to me! He's that friend that is waitig to hear from me, don't I at least owe Him our attention?

I can stress just how important it is to spend with God. He loves you unconditionally and wants the best for you in life. Finding the time of day can be a challenge, but it's a challenge that I encourage anyone who feels the same to walk with me. Of course not every single person will feel like this. Maybe you're on a spiritual high right now, and that's awesome.

One of the beauties about God is that we don't need to have battery on our phones, or credit, emails, Facebook, Twitter and all the other stuff to communicate with Him. God doesn't cost money and you don't need internet to speak to him. He's there, right beside us 24/7, ready to listen to whatever it is you have to tell Him.

"For God so loved teh world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

God gave His son, what will you give?

If you have ideas of how to get fired up for God again, please comment below. Share your thoughts, it won't only be me you're helping, but other readers out there too.
