How Busy Are You?

Do you have time to your family? to your friends? and especially when was the last time you talk to God? When was the last time you spend time with HIM? I have here a story that make us all think and realized many things.

"Satan called a worldwide convention. In his opening address to the evil angels, he said, "We can't keep the believers from going to their places of worship. We can't keep them from reading their Holy Scriptures and knowing the truth. We can't even keep them from conservative values. But we can do something else. We can keep them from forming an intimate, binding experience in God.

If they gain that connection with their Creator, our power over them is broken. So.......let them go to their places of worship, let them have their conservative lifestyles, but steal their time, so they can't gain that experience in God. That is what I want you to do angels, distract them from gaining hold of their Lord and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" shouted his angels "Keep them busy in non-essentials of life and invent unnumbered schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, then borrow, borrow, borrow. Convince the husband and wives to go to work for 6 or 7 days a week, 10 to 12 hours a day, so they can afford their lifestyles. Keep them from spending time with their children.

As their family fragments, soon their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work. Over stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small voice. Entice them to play the radio or casette player whenever they drive, to keep the TV, and the VCR, and their CDs going constantly in their homes. And see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays music constantly. This will jam their minds and break that union with God. Fill their coffee tables with magazines and newspapers. Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day. Invade their driving moments with billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail offering free products, services, and false hopes. Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return from their recreation exhausted, disquieted and unprepared for the coming week. Don't let them go out in nature. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events, concerts and movies instead.

And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences and unsettled emotions. Let them be involved in soul-winning, but crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power from God. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family unity for the good cause.

It was quite a convention in the end. And the evil angels went eagerly to their assignments causing believers everywhere to get busy, busy, busy, and rush here and there."
