That's the way time can be for all of us. We become so busy, picking up first one thing and then another, and then we look around and realize our plate is so full we are leaving things undone. I guess that's what David meant about "my cup runneth over." It is great to have a chance to see family, especially since I don't get out much anymore. I was glad to see my nephews, Thomas and Timmy. They are sweet little fellows and well-behaved. They remind me of my boys when they were small, because they always wanted to bite off more than they could chew, and then seemed surprised when it was more than they could handle. I guess they inherited that trait though.
Oddly enough, we don't seem to do that often in the Spirit world. You know, there are many people who don't believe the Spirit world exists in the first place, don't believe in anything that can't be seen with the eyes. This reminds me of Thomas, the Disciple. "Except I see it with my eyes..." Thomas. But, those of us who are willing to believe in what we have not seen with our eyes, we still tend to back off somewhat when we feel we've moved in a little too close for comfort to the Spiritual realm. We have a limit to what we can absorb and it is not easily surpassed. It comes slowly in degrees. For example, we don't move from reading our Bible once a year to reading 4 hours a day all at once. No, changes in the Spirit realm usually come in steps... like Timmy's videos today, one at a time. Hence, the Spirit and the Word can be said to be like a hammer, beating out a cadence and a rhythm. Jeremiah 23:29 Is not my word like a fire? says the LORD; and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?
