Are you a Sucker or Sustainer?
A Kisser or a Clinger?
Do you give lip service?
Do you play the part?
Say all the right things?
Do all the right things?
When the rubber meets the road, do you CLING to what you know to be true or do you bale; with a KISS?
When your past starts to pull on you, do you cling to Jesus as though your very life depends on Him? (it does)
Or do you say, “This was great, but I’m going back to what I know”
“It’s been great but…Kiss, kiss!”
Are you willing to cling to God in the desert or do you kiss off and go back to Egypt?
I’m not a scholar but, let’s look at Ruth.
Married 10 years–no kids, in her own country with her own family.
Mother-in-law decides to leave because of famine
and the death of all the men in her life.
Pretty good idea don’t you think?
Ruth goes with her
Leaves her family, friends, everything she knew,
even though Naomi was whining about what had happened to her.
Ruth still knew the God and the people of Naomi was what she wanted,
what she needed!
Cling? Oh, yes!
Kiss off? Nope
Sucker? Absolutely not!
When life gets hard (and it will) hang on to the Father. Trust Him with the outcome.
Trust Him with the details. Trust Him!
