Convicted by a Cartoon

The Lord is with me each and every moment of my life. He is there when I speak, when I listen, when I sing, when I sleep, when I eat. He knows the number of hairs on my head and how many breaths I take. He knows my weaknesses and loves me anyway. Any strengths I have are because He has had mercy upon me and allowed me to use His treasure. I want to use it for Him, always. I want every breath to bring glory to Him. But, sadly, it’s not always that way.

Since He is constantly with me, He was also there when I snapped at the kids over some silly thing, when I huffed, puffed or sighed showing my own attitude problem, when I allowed fear to grip me instead of trusting Him, and on and on. He could destroy me with a thought, but instead He lets me live. He helps me to grow. Today, He used a cartoon to get my attention. But I wasn’t laughing.

Cartoon taken from the Lawton Constitution, Sept. 15, 2013. For Better or For Worse

I could only think,”Guilty!” And I was reminded that God can use anything – even a cartoon in the Sunday paper – to help me get my priorities right.
