The other day when I was using my laptop, a reminder popped up to remind me to respond to a request I’d received last week. The reminder popped up when I was in the middle of doing something else, so I simple clicked the button to ask to be reminded again later.

How many times has a reminder come up on your phone, tablet or laptop reminding you of a task that you need to undertake, but, like me, you’re to busy to deal with it at that time and just hit remind me later or snooze?

As I sat later on and thought about how easy it was for me to click a button to dismiss a request and indicate I should be reminded later, it got me thinking about how I respond when God asks me to do something. Sadly I think I respond in much the same way to God at times, by telling Him “now isn’t good for me“, “I’m too busy just now” or “I don’t want to do this just now“.

While “remind me later” may be an acceptable response to reminders that come up on my mobile, tablet or laptop, it’s not a response I should be giving God!

This year why not join me in pledging to respond positively to God when he asks me to do something, rather than saying “remind me later“.
