Stop Talking About God
Every now and then I’ve been asked why I talk about God too much. Or to stop talking about God. Funny thing is it’s not coming from strangers or co-workers but more from a few friends and families, even my own daughter would say, “Papa you talk so much about God,” or from friends on social media, “Hey, turn down all that stuff about God.”
But how could I stop talking about Him when He’s done so much for me. How could I stop when there’s no else there for me yet He is the only one that showed up. How could I stop when He showed me kindness and grace instead of the punishment I deserve. How could I stop when I feel His presence enveloping me with peace and comfort while I’m all teared up and heart-broken. How could I stop when He empowers me with His strength and do the things I was never capable of doing. How could I stop when He is my light while I was lost in darkness, and in that darkness His hands only I can see saying, “Come and take my hand, I will guide you.”
How could I stop when I say I can’t do this and He says, “I have not given you a spirit of fear.” How could I stop when I say I don’t have much to go on, and He says, “I will provide.” Lo, and behold He always meet my needs. How could I stop when I’m all beat down by lies and hurtful words feeling like the whole world is crushing down on me and yet He says, “I will fight for you,” and He always delivers. I don’t even have to do anything but obey Him and watch victory unfold. How could I stop when there’s no one eager to listen and He says, “I’m here 24-7, I will never forsake you nor leave you.”
I could go on for more and list a hundred reasons. But how could I stop talking about the One that made the biggest impact (still is) in my entire life. Jesus Christ is what defines me. It is all of me. I will never stop proclaiming His goodness and glory.
Friends, families and lovers could abandon you in a moments notice. How could I stop when Christ is all I’ve got.
