Pin the donkey

I was working with another office problem and I said to my supervisor that it felt as if I was playing a game of pin the donkey. Do you remember that party game? For those of you who didn't play it, let me explain.

A picture of a donkey is placed on a board while the tail is a separate piece with a pin. One of the children is blind folded and they have to try and pin the tail back onto the donkey. Of course when they miss all the children laugh and its all fun.

Do you feel like you have been playing pin the donkey with your faith? Been meaning to get a regular bible reading plan going, but just not getting it done? Been meaning to make church services a regular occurrence but just not getting there? Or maybe even been meaning to phone a friend who's been going through a hard time but just not getting around to it? Maybe your own life has been in so much pain that you can't see through the storm to know that God is there or to even have the strength to reach out and help others.

Don't feel guilty, that's what the devil wants. He wants you to feel bad about not getting round to doing the things that God is telling us to do so that when we do it, its not for the purpose of worshiping God but out of guilt and then there is no pleasure in it at all. With that job done, we just slip into our old habits and the devil has won.

No, rejoice when life throws curve balls at you that make it hard for you to accomplish that which you know is from God, because that is a clear indication that the devil considers you a threat. Stand strong, love God, mourn with all your soul and rejoice through the weeping. God sees our hearts and knows when we are hurting and when we are under stress and he understands.
