Doing What I Don’t Want

I finally got the courage.  After many years praying for a beloved relative, I finally had the courage to ask her what her relationship is with Jesus.  She was pleased I asked and asked me about her adult children.  I said I have been praying for them as long as I prayed for her and told her to add her prayers to mine.  I don’t know why I waited so long to ask her.  I was more concerned for our relationship than I was for her eternal life with God.  This is sinful, self-love to be more concerned about a relationship than someone’s eternal life.  I’m sure some of you have friends or family you’ve not discussed the two options for their future.  Our priorities are not with God.  We need to pray first for the ground to be ready and the ears nd heart and mind open then we must be bold and tell them about the only way to eternal life with the one true God.  I pray for each of you to start or continue praying then listen for God to gently I,press you that it’s time to share the way.  We join Paul in the continued forgiveness and patience of God as we learn to walk in the ways of His Holy Spirit rather than the ways of our sinful flesh.  The question is, are we willing to learn?
