Man, smoke in the eyes with all that flyin' ash, filth and stuff.. it can sting!

Why waste time and energy trying to become an expert in, or even in getting better at doing that which you really shouldn't be doing at all? It might have seemed like a no-brainer, a good idea, and God-idea at first, but did you ask God about it?  Who really wants to end up with nothin' but wood, hay, and stubble putting out filthy smoke in their eyes?

Dare ya if I may... Ask the Lord if He is enjoying being Lord in daily leading you, and if you are really keeping the main thing the main thing? Dead works are dead - they aren't blessed or used to bring forth any life.  

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." ~ Jesus, in Matthew 11:28  

"Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person's work has any value. If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames." 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 nlt 

"Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vainIt is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows...Psalm 127:1-2a

May I ask you a simple question? Are you currently a part of God's family - are you born again spiritually (see John 3:3)? Listen, you can be today. God loves you, He can forgive you no matter what you've done, and He has a specific plan for you life. Right now you can be. Ask Him. 

From the beginning of time, even though God lives outside of time, He has always really wanted a family. And guess what.. He so desires that you and your loved ones be part of that family rather than merely wear the family name. Oh yes He indeed does.
