I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this to you, but I consider this
work for Christ with this website, to be my Calling. And I’ve wondered from time to time why God waited until I was
along in years to make that Call.
I read 1st Corinthians 7:34, as I have time and time again, down through the years, and it never hit me before. And I should
mention right here that if you wonder why you read a verse over and over, then one day it stands out to you. This verse says,
"His interests are divided."
what has that to do with my Calling to spread the name of Christ through this website! Paul is talking about married life
in the verses around these few words, but it hit me in no uncertain terms. Because during the years I was running those radio
stations, God could have given me a word, and before I could even write down the thought to save until I had time to write
the article, the phone would ring or a client would walk in or a dozen other things would get in the way. My interests were
too divided, to give to God what He wanted.
to top it all off, how could I have reached you dear folks for Him before the computer came along, which has let
me contact you from my desk in my home. It overwhelms me, to think that this sentence by Paul concerning marriage,
which he was pointing out that divides a man between God and wife, was also written for me! "The days of our years are
threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years..." God gave me extra years to do this
How convenient it is now, that when God puts a thought in my mind,
I have the time to simply go to the computer and write the article. And this also amazes me…that the words just flow,
and when I’m through, I wonder at it. There’s just no question; God gives me the words. But check me, that I
don’t let myself get in the way.
you are in life, don’t use it as an excuse to put God on a back burner. He’s still first, no matter where or
when. Make time for Him. He may be saving you for better things, years from now!
