I Got Caught

Monday August 14, 2011

We have all had times when we were doing something that we knew we weren’t supposed to be doing and got caught.  It may be a time when we had the contraband on us and were caught red-handed.  When I went to Virginia to visit my kids and grandson, we caught him up at the table with his hands in the proverbial cookie (Krispie Kreme donut box ) jar.

How can you get mad at that face.  He was having the best time of his life.  God wants us to enjoy life and yes, sometimes He wants us to enjoy a donut or two.  Jesus said in John 10:10, “I have come that you might have life and that you might have it abundantly.”  My grandson is sure enjoying life to its fullest with his hands full of donuts.

The question for today is this.  What does God want you to enjoy today so that you might enjoy life to its fullest?  Maybe its as simple as buying yourself a donut.  It may be calling a friend and having lunch with them.  It may be connecting with a son or daughter or a relative or friend you haven’t had contact with for a while.  It may be doing something just for yourself.

On this journey, God is a God that loves and cares for us and wants us to have His best in life.

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.
