Summer of '69
Posted: June 03, 2016
Ah, summertime. The time of the year where bugs abound and the heat makes you sweat...
I'm totally kidding! Summertime is an awesome time! It's vacation time! It's pool time! It's beach time singing Summer of '69 (is there a better summer jam??)! It's relaxation time! It's... well, it's a lot of awesome times, and I could go on and on. But I won't. Instead, I was thinking right now would be a great time to remind us of something very important: don't take a vacation from Jesus.
It's easy to hit the pool and forget to to hit your bible. It's easy to go to the beach and forget to spend some time with the guy who separated the sand from the water. During these warm summer months, let's not forget to spend some time with God, because he's the one that made the seasons and everything that's great about each one.
“Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.”
- Jeremiah 29:23 (MSG)
Lord, I know rest and vacations are good, because your word says so. But while I'm vacating from work and busyness, help me to remain faithful in my commitment to you. Help me to continue to seek you and find you. In Jesus' name, amen.
