I’m sure we have all had the experience of being with a great friend. It just doesn’t matter what we do when we’re together, it’s all about having the time to just be together. This morning’s devotional time was emphasizing this message about my relationship with Christ Jesus. He is far more interested in in our relationship than He is about what I’m going to do with Him. I’ve always journaled what the day has in store and hoping that what I’m doing is in line with His leadership in my life. I want to make sure what I’m doing is right and done well. The light seemed to click on when I was reading my devotions. That message is that my relationship IS the most important thing between God–Jesus and me. In fact, I heard his nudge to spend all that I’m doing today totally with Him. Don’t “worry” about the things I do, simply enjoy being in the presence of my best Friend. If I’m to lend wisdom or healthy thought to someone I can know that this will be a direct result of the relationship.
I have to admit that I have been eager but concerned about today. This morning I am meeting for breakfast with a friend who resigned from her very toxic position as a school superintendent. I believe I wrote about this a week or so ago. Tonight I give my testimony to our Celebrate Recovery group. I want to “do” both of these well.
The message of this morning was an excellent one for me. I don’t want to present an anxious man as I step into the day. I step into it as a friend listening and sharing plus coming with the Wisest Friend of all–Jesus Christ.
