I didn’t grow up reading the Bible, never participated in any memorization competitions in youth group, in fact, I really didn’t find my church “home” until I was 16. Needless to say, there are still times when I hear or read biblical truths and my mind is completely blown. Saturday afternoon was one of those times. I had the privilege of attending a one-of-a-kind women’s conference in Cornelius. The group that put on the conference is called Collected (I would encourage you to follow them on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/collectedwomen )
I’m blessed to call one of the gals “friend.” During her part of the presentation she spoke about the great importance of having a close and intimate relationship with God. She shared Genesis 5:24:
“Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.”
He didn’t die folks, God just took him. I have to believe that their relationship was mutual, God loved spending time with Enoch, just as much as Enoch loved spending time with God.
I want to disappear like Enoch. I want my eyes and ears to remain on Him every minute of every day until He decides He doesn’t want to be without me. I don’t just want this for myself – I want it for my family, my friends, and my clients. What kind of message would it send to our culture, and the world, if devoted Christians just started disappearing???
As we enter into 2018, I would love to be able to encourage you in this journey of abiding in a close relationship with the Father. Leave a comment on my blog, let me know how I can be praying for you.
Abiding, and possibly disappearing,
