Pick Up Your Phone

20 Sep

Have you ever loved someone so much but they did not quite love you back? Have you ever given of your time, money, energies, even yourself for another’s sake but it never did seem good enough?
Have you ever swallowed your pride and laid your heart bare, even emptied it of its assets to accommodate the other person only to have it shattered, robbed and left emptier than before? Have you ever gone all academic, acrobatic, artistic even poetic to express your love
only to have your efforts smudged in your face…worse still, trampled down under the very feet you had always dreamt of rubbing, tickling or washing evermore? Have you ever gone all out only to be told to talk to the hand or to go back the same way you came and ‘shut the door behind you’? Do the words ‘I-aint-ready’, ‘you-are-not-my-type’, ‘i-cannot-commit’ sound all too familiar? In fact, if you know what it is to be snobbed, heart-broken, to not be given a chance, please raise your hand.
My point exactly. All of us can relate. Yet still, the very things we hate, despise, dread and get depressed over are the same things we do everyday to one man who deserves none of it, even at the least. Think cross, nails, Calvary; think God-made-man. We know the story, because we stop to celebrate Christmas, Palm Sunday, Easter, you name it. Oh we think we know what touches His heart, we can very well sing, go to church, do good deeds, catch my drift? And still, we do everything we can to excuse ourselves from loving Him in entirety: with our mind, body and soul. We stay up long enough to mumble our thanksgiving prayers and get around to say the grace as a family, if at all. See a people that pray together, stay together. But seriously?
He stands at the door of your heart and knocks; He has, since that first day you heard about Him, still You harden your heart and say it is not the day, it is not the place, you are not the person, not with your problems, blah blah blah. Did He say come to me all ye that are perfect, without addictions, not given to the ways of the world? No! He said ‘Come to me all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest.’ Matthew 11:28. His yoke is easy, His burden is light. So snap out of it, the excuses, the playing hard to get, the mistrust…give Jesus a chance. You have nothing to lose. Trust me, the pleasures you have outside of Christ are only so sweet because you are losing the battle for your life. If its too comfortable, you are in the wrong camp. So yeah, taste and see that the Lord is good.
This is for all my friends because I love you all. Share it with yours, spread the love. If you have known Christ from before but forfeited His vibe for one justified reason or another, recommit. He needs you back, He is waiting for you .See He says in Romans 13:11 that ‘…knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. ‘
If you need to get saved, inbox me or any other of your friends who know Jesus. Better still, call. Today is the day of Salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2
He is calling. Pick up your phone. He is knocking. Open Your Heart. He’s been looking for you. Just let Him find you.
Pick up your phone.
