Seeking God with all my heart

This morning I rushed through my time with the Lord, and ultimately paid for that almost immediately!  Well with in the hour, I dropped off my riders at the HS, and the bus infront of me decided to park which left me little to no room to clear her as I left there.  I hit my mirror on the back corner of the other bus.  OKAY! Totally embarrassing!  Among things like Idiot girl (to myself), now I must get out of the bus see the damage, and correct my mirror!  I still have an hour and a half to pick up and drop off kids.  When the other driver approached me, I prayed…”hold my tongue…or she is not getting Jesus today!”  Well He did hold my tongue, and she was very kind and gracious to me, and even helped me to back my bus so that I could clear her.  Seems she will be sitting in that postion everyday now.  Ultimately my fault for stopping too close to her, and for my own ignorance in not knowing that bus will be sitting there…it wasn’t there all last week.  UUUUUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!!!

Now I am praying that nothing else will happen as I continue.  I am praying all the things I did not pray before I proceeded on with my day.  HE was very clear in that bus, as HE reminded me that I had no time for HIM this morning, and passively thought I would just catch up later in the day.  Some can get away with that…but not me!  I am on the short leash and for my own good! 

I returned to the bus company and let my boss know what I had done, and he turned bright red..but only said.”don’t wreck my buses” not even in a loud voice.  Believe me I was prepared for the worst!  Needless to say I went back to my home and got in the Word, and sought the Lord with all my heart.  The short thing that I read early this morning I looked over again too.  There was my warning that I so quickly passed off…2Chronicles 31:21  “in every work that he began in the service of the house of God in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart.  So he prospered.” (italics mine)  Henry Blackaby – “When you do not resolve to seek the Lord, calamity is the inevitable result.”  :>) got it!!

  1. I’m on the short leash too! Sounds like many of my mornings! The thing is I KNOW that I can’t take a step without Him, so why in the world do I rush through so many morning prayer and devotion times! I’m just so glad He always grants a second chance! I may use that Henry Blackaby quote sometime in a blog.. I love it!

    Thanking God for you!
    steph.

  2. WOW! Love how God speaks to us right where we need it! Glad things ended up okay and remember His mercies are brand new every morning! Praise Him for that. Lifting up a prayer for you princess!
    Much love,
    Angela

  3. This is a very timely reminder for me … love ya, Princess!!

  4. Thank you for openly sharing the lesson you learned. I was thinking of how I was going to get all the things I need to get done in the morning, but I know I wont be skimping on my time with HIM! I think I’ll get up earlier!

    Blessings in Christ–

  5. I love your posts. Very encouraging as always. What a heart for the Lord. I just want to love on Jesus all the more.
    I am asking for prayer for my niece (my cousins daughter). She is about 15. She is close to a few hundred pounds and has had a tough life: no father, mother who is always working, a little brother to care for,etc.. She needs encouragement and I made a post for her asking people to bless her with a word. Please take a moment to do this and send others to my blog if you don’t mind. She doesn’t have Christians in her life and I live a couple states away. She needs some people from the body of Christ to give her a due Word in due season and bless her socks off!
    Thank you!

  7. Hey! I can SO relate – how cool is it that God is so intimately involved with us that He speaks from His Word to something about to happen in your life that day? Hope you have a great day today. Sunshine

  8. Hey Princess,
