Obsession….. I have many

 

I know that most people don’t admit when they have one, let alone many obsessions. Well I am here to tell you that anyone who says they don't have an obsession is a liar. Not all obsessions are bad, there are some good ones.

obsession /əbˈseSHən/
  1. The state of being obsessed with someone or something: "she cared for him with a devotion bordering on obsession".
  2. An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.

Now we generally think of stalkers when we visualize obsession. However, we can become obsessed with our kids, our spouses, shoes, food, clothing, make-up, curriculum, what the neighbors might think of us, the newest gadget that we must have and I have to say my FAVORITE.. {yes I bolded it} my favorite obsession is God himself.

Now my other obsessions my or may not be healthy depending on how i relate to them, but my obsession with God will help control those other obsessions.Leaning on him, can help keep the rest of my flesh in check. Knowing that my seeking him first beforehand, will keep my finances, health, happiness in order. I may not always do it the first time which is why I fail then. And failing is learning.

I’m struggling to lose weight and it has become to the point that I don’t know where to turn anymore. Then a light came on.  If I go to my Favorite obsession, HE just might be able to help me overcome my weight. Now, I am learning patience. Do we ever stop learning? Maybe the day we stop is the day we have left God out. Anyways… I have gone to God and asked for help. I know this wont be easy, I know it will be a rough road. God never promised easy, he promised eternity and to be there through it all. To learn to lean on him for everything! I guess that also includes our struggles.

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t struggle. There isn’t a day that goes by I wish things were easier, there isn’t a day that goes by where I wish I was as perfect as so and so.. Then I am reminded that there was one perfect man who walked this earth and no one is as perfect as he is.

Therefore it is okay to struggle, it is okay to weep, to be messy, to be loud, angry, ma,d upset, so long as you take it to your FAVORITE obsession first to help you through that rough time.

Matthew 11:28 says "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” For me, this means in everything you have are see say or do, if you go to God, he will give you rest, we just have to give it to him.

Now go forth and give love and thanks to your Favorite Obsession!
