GOD PAUSE: In my Bible reading a little bit ago, I was reminded about the fact that some people just won't understand me, finding it difficult to relate to my passion or love for the Lord. You see, once the Lord comes into your life, everything changes. Your direction. Your decision-making. Your life-style. David says in Psalms 68:8, 9 “You know my brothers and sisters? They now reject me --- they act as if I never existed. I”m like a stranger to my own family. And here's why. I am consumed with You,” Dear Papa, You have completely taken my heart. And so I am devoted to pleasing You with my life. Help me to know some around me won't understand that. But I can still love and point them to You. Amen and amen.
