This hit me the other day while going through a drive-thru......I go to a drive-thru because I don't have time or I don't want to cook. I expect my order to be right and if it isn't the way I want it, then I'm frustrated. I want it to be speedy, speedy and if they take too long....well, then I'm even more frustrated....................I realized that I do that to my amazing God sometimes! I go to Him sometimes only when I've decided I can't do it myself. I put in my request (order) and really want it to come out my way......In a nice speedy, speedy fashion. And I know that is not the kind of God that I serve. He is always there for me, but His ways are bigger than my ways, and His thoughts are higher than my thoughts. He wants every part of my life....the everyday not much going on part of my life and the Oh my goodness how am I ever going to get through this part of my life. And I've learned, that without giving Him the first part......then I'm just expecting Him to be my drive-thru service.........and that has nothing to do with my heart or my God. That's why I have to choose everyday to spend time with Him and in His word. Help me Lord and Thank You for always being there!
