I'm Tell You It Really Is That Easy...
For the past 7 months my husband and I have been trying to sell our house. I have learned many things in the process of selling our first home. I have learned that I can
I have to admit, through this stressful process any man and wife find it challenging not to fight or bicker. I had a light bulb moment this week, in the past I have been upset about my husband not cleaning like I was. I felt he was not helping out, but in reality we had different definitions. You would think after 14 years of marriage we could get on the same page, but that is what makes life
When I say we need to clean because we have a house showing I think of Clorox, mopping, vacuuming, Windexing, etc..
What he hears is, “honey get out some big power tools and screw something in or get the hammer and hammer things in. Oh and be sure to leave dust where you were.”
When I say, “Ok everyone pitch in and we can get this house clean.”
What he hears is, “Ok I will go spend quality time with the boys and get them out of your hair.”
When I say, “honey are you going to help with the cleaning?”
What he hears is, “Ok I will go clean off my dresser.”
I say this all tongue in cheek (um..kind of). But how many times are we like that with the Lord.
Lord: Come to me.
Me: Ok Lord let me get this one area figured out and I will be ready to come to you.
Lord: No, just come to me.
Me: Father I need the latest books and sermons to learn more about you.
Lord: No, just come.
Me: Father, what are you trying to tell me I am confused?
Lord: JUST COME.
Me: Lord here I am.
Sometimes we don’t understand the simplest things. We try to make God more complicated than he is. Have you every asked Christ into your heart? Do you fear that life will be more difficult or more complicated? As humans we make it more complicated when in reality it is very easy. Admit we are sinners, ask Christ to forgive us of our sins, and believe that Christ died on the cross for you…YOU. That’s it. Life won’t be easy, but now you will have a place to dump all the ugliness of the world and tell him, “Father you take control of it, because I can’t.”
Wherever you find your self….Just come as you are, lumps and all. There is not one thing you need to take care of, JUST COME.
Heavenly Father, thank you for speaking to my simple brain. I tend to make things more complicated than they really are, but you have made loving you so easy. Please don’t let our pride get in the way of continually accepting your grace and mercy, for no mater how many times we fall or sin; you are right there to accept our forgiveness. And Lord I pray if anyone reading this does not know you as Lord and Savior that the Holy Spirit will show them how easy it is to love and believe in you. Thank you Jesus.
