Buying expensive clothes, gadgets and going out with friends for some this is the way they fill in the gap. Instead of talking to the Lord, we choose to solve it in our way. We haven’t realized it that the Lord is letting us have this situation so that we talk to him. We rather share and seek advice with our friends and family. And we never asked help or even have a quiet moment with our Lord.
A quiet moment with him is the way we contemplate with all the blessings or failures; we’ve done in our lives. We are scared to admit that we are at fault, and we always tried to justify it. A mistake is a mistake, and all we can do is to learn from it. But we never learned. We kept on repeating every mistake. These are our own doing, and we take the consequences of our personal actions.
Why are we so scared to have a quiet moment with him? Maybe, because we are afraid to admit and to let go of the wrong habits. The justification that we are only human and we are not perfect is not enough. Why don’t we turn to him and be with him? He is only asking for a few minutes from our 24 hours.
Seeing others happy at times that we are in troubles makes us bitter. We then asked Him why do you bless them and answering all their cries? And how about me? Aren’t you listening or hearing my cries? Feeling so unfair at this moment. But we didn’t realize it that He never answered our prayers in the way we want it to be. He might already give us the answer to our prayers, but we didn’t see it or knew it because it’s not the way we want it to be.
We asked too much, but do we give enough time for him? Sometimes our Lord is just getting our attention by all this problem, challenges, and failures so that we turn to him, and we will talk to him.
It’s never too late to run back to him. For he will there for us opens arms welcoming us. Spend time with him, listen to his voice and always trust in him never give up. Keep holding on him and he will take care of the rest.
Are we ready to have a quiet moment with him?
