Have you ever experienced being “in the zone” in front of your computer screen?
Maybe you’re writing a blog, or you’re updating your status, or perhaps, your composing what you hope could be an encouraging “tweet” to your numerous followers, when suddenly, the following appeared at your computer screen:
The page cannot be displayed. The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.
Some people frown when they see that message, others freak out and get mad because the file they’re downloading was disrupted. While still others go straight to their DSL box and check if there’s a disconnection from their cable.
In life, with the fast paced world we’re living in, it’s easy to “connect” through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, among others. Networks that easily “connect” us to people, to friends whose distance in kilometers is narrowed down through the internet.
But have we checked our connection with God lately? Is the “failed to open (Bible) page(s)” been appearing at your brain screen recently?
Have we tried checking out our connection cable? Maybe the connection cable of prayer is “unplugged”?
We might just have to take the time to get out of our chair of busyness and give some attention to the loose cable of life so we could get connected again with Jesus.
The busyness of life can be tiresome, burdensome and could leave a trail of discouraged hearts and downcast faces.
But let me leave you with this refreshing invitation from the Jesus, Author of Life– 28 ¶ “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Mathew 11:28-30)
If you’re tired and discouraged, go ahead and accept His invitation. You’ll never regret it. You’ll be refreshed and you’ll find out that the time spent with Him reverberates throughout eternity.
