Did you have this toy when you were little? I think I did. Frustration would set in when I got a good long chain and then it would break apart! I try not to allow such things to frustrate me anymore. I can get out of sorts over computer glitches, but I have learned not to go there. It doesn't do anyone any good for me to be frustrated. Now I can step back, and do something else while I curse the computer, {not really.} I find something more productive to do so I can think it through and then come back to it.

Learning to use a computer takes a lot of time, and I guess that is what bothers me the most. I waste time trying to learn how to make it work. But wait, is it really wasted time if I can learn from it? It is all a matter of how I look at it. It can be the same with our walk with God.

If time spent talking to God is productive, {which of course it is,} then it is important time. We can't measure how productive it is with our ways of measurement, but we know that it brings the peaceable fruit of love, joy and self-control. These are things that we cannot gain by any other means, and their price is beyond measure!

 Can you put any sort of price on the peace that fills your soul that God gives you when you choose to become His own? Never. Many have tried to find peace from a bottle, or pill, from sex or from food and they come up short every time. They may feel good for the moment, but that dull pain comes back to haunt them. Please pray for those who don't have the peace of God. He longs to fill empty souls with the truth that lasts forever.

Maybe you are one of those, and you are thinking Ann, I don't know what you are talking about. Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive you of your sins, and cleanse you from all unrighteousness, and He will come into your life, and make you whole. It may not be instant, but you will feel changed, because you will be.
