A challenge to Christian living is that God places opportunities for ministry at seemingly inopportune times. The needs are there when they are there, not at our scheduled convenience. Family problems, natural disasters, community injustices and world conflicts can all seem to be hitting us at the same time. We will have to pick and choose how we answer these challenges. We should not feel alone in doing so. God knows where and how we need to respond. God will be with us and will show us the way. We need to lay aside our excuses for more timely involvement with Christ and let God be God with us in the now.
Gracious and loving God, be with each and every one of us and constantly remind us that you are the only God. Amen. — EEMS
