“when we get bored out we feel like hell” That’s what one of my friends said to me tonight. It reminded me of something that’s very important to us. How many times are we bored out of our minds at home, but we don’t do anything about it except complain about how bored we are? How many times do we think about spending time with God but instead we say .. oh no, I have too much homework, I’ll do it another time ..? I’m sure I have more than I can count with both my fingers and my feet.
I can say, I do it all the time. Not necessarily because I was busy with homework, but just because i’m too lazy to, or i’m watching a tv show that I think is very important. When we don’t have anything to do and we’re just sitting at home, that is the best time to find somewhere quiet, without music, without any distractions, and spend time with God. Pray, read the bible and just have your quiet time.
Sometimes you have disappointments in order to have surprises that make you smile. It might not mean a lot to you, but to me, getting an real email from anyone telling me about their life and what’s going on makes me happy. And today, you sent me one. I felt better from basketball and when I came home, I took a glanced at my gmail, saw your name and had a big grin on my face. The email was nothing special but it was good to hear from you.
Two days. Hang in there folks.
