I mess up because…..

“It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.” John 11:10.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; John 9-11.

When I leave God, I mess up.

It’s that simple.

Does it happen immediately? Nope.  But in time it happens.  I realize it and regret it.

What is keeping me from figuring this out?  I read a few days ago about the frustration with people who are locked into a start-up relationship with God.  Why do I continue to be in their number!

I am so easily sidetracked into godlessness.

The answer above is amusing.  Jesus wants to return to an area where people want to kill him.  Traveling at night would be the safest time to do it.  Jesus grabbed a teaching point in his “best-time-to-travel” explanation.

Traveling in the dark, turns into avoiding darkness (separation from God) in our lives.  What a teacher!

How many times do I write this in this blog: My relationship with God must be in full bloom the minute I wake up in the morning.  I can’t wait for the first “hurdle” to come along, and then after falling over it, activate a connection to God.

I do forty sit-ups before I get out of bed.  Can I do them and connect to Him at the same time?  About time I found out!

“Lord, forgive me for walking in darkness.  I love You.  I never want separation from You.  Yet I separate.  I cannot lose my attachment to You ever.  Flood me with You, I beg.  I love You, Lord.”

Are you frustrated by your frequent mess-ups?  I am by mine.
