“…I’m a complete failure. I hate my job, I’ve never been to Nevada; I don’t know the Atlantic from the Dead Sea; and I’ve never been fishing in my life….”

"...I Hate my Life..."

“…I Hate my Life…”

What stands between me and a successful career?  What stands between me and a successful marriage partner?  What stands between me and happiness?  What stands between me and a committed relationship with God?  What are the five most important things to me in the world?  W-O-W…that’s the easy one…it would be Sunday Football, sailing on the Lake.  And, fishing for the “big-one” in the Great Atlantic, followed by semi-annual trek to the Las Vegas Casino’s.  And, the most important of all……..I’d like to open up a “used-car” lot.  So….there you go….that’s my life.  Other than that….I’m a complete failure.  I hate my job, I’ve never been to Nevada; I don’t know the Atlantic from the Dead Sea; and I’ve never been fishing in my life.  I’m a miserable wreck.  (I have, however, always wanted to have a used-car lot). What’s wrong?  I’m like a lot of people….I’ve left God out of the Covenant.  One does not mock God.  The first commandment of God is found in Exodus 20:3-4: I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.  Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. By the first commandment we are commanded to offer to God alone the supreme worship that is due Him.  It is written in Luke 4:8: “The Lord thy God shalt thou worship, and him only shalt thou serve.”  How do we worship God?  We worship God by acts of faith, hope, and charity, and by adoring Him and praying to Him.   God stands between us and everything we do.  …Blessings…cjlb….8/24/14.
