your body starts sending you signals of discomfort?
the next thing you know, your body notifies you
of the need to bodily relieve yourself in the bathroom.
Is that weird? Does it happen often??
For me, almost every time.
And I take it as a sign from Satan...
that I am attempting to draw close to the Father,
and Satan is sending me messages of supposed urgency.
But what happens if I dont respond?
Will I “wet my pants”?
Or am I strong enough to wait the fifteen minutes while I continue reading?
“But I cannot concentrate when I need to... GO!”
because he wants to distract us from a relationship with God.
The chair becomes uncomfortable.
Our clothes are bunched up in strategic pinch points.
We become concerningly thirsty, or hungry.
But you and I both know that when we drive a car...
we must wait to do any of these until we reach our destination.
Are you ever too hot? Or cold?
Is it ever too windy or noisy in the room?
We can make a thousand excuses
to not make time for God
or even cut it short due to our physical discomfort,
but arent we glad Christ didnt find it too inconvenient
to die for us on the cross?
And push through the discomfort.
Often, when the sensations comes, they aren’t life threatening.
But even when it is... thats when we need Him most!
