Anyway as I was saying, I usually take Sundays very easy, I've got to go to work on Mondays and need the time to recuperate from the beating my body takes all through the week. You try going up 7 floors by the stairs 10 times a day week in and week out. Oh well, at least I'm pretty fit.
While I was slaving away I was wondering whether there is anything impossible for God. There are a few things that to me seem impossible for Him. One of them being his absolute truth. It must be impossible for Him to lie. The other thing that I've been thinking about lately is his inability to give us that which we deny ourselves. Take love for example, if you refuse to accept the love that is offered to you by God or even someone that God is giving us to love us, then He can't give that love to us. Kind of like the drowning man that prays to the Lord and asks Him to save him. As the story goes first a log of wood came floating by but the man would not cling to it because God was going to save him then a boat came past but he wouldn't get in for the same reason. Finally a helicopter came and hovered just above him and a line was thrown to him. You guessed it, he refused that too and drowned. Standing before the Lord he asked, "Why didn't you save me?" The Lord answered, "My child, first I sent a log then a boat and finally a helicopter. What more could I do?"
I know that I've missed what the Lord is offering me on more than one occasion, sorry Lord. But I'm alive and am anxiously awaiting whatever He has planned for my life. One day at a time sweet Jesus is all I'm asking of you. Just give me the strength to carry me through one day at a time.
Come now be honest, have you ever missed an opportunity God himself was giving you?
