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“.

In the last few months in my previous “Slogans” blog posts, I mentioned how we all see and hear many adverts on a daily basis via advertising hoardings or adverts on the radio, television  magazines and newspapers.

Today again I want to give you some more slogans to see how many of the companies/organisations associated with them you can identify from their slogans?

  1. Just do it
  2. American by birth, rebel by choice
  3. Live in your world. Play in ours
  4. The miracles of science
  5. See what we mean
  6. Pleasing people the world over
  7. Finger lickin’ good
  8. Connecting people
  9. When you care enough to send the very best
  10. Out there starts here

So that’s the slogans, how many do you think you know?

So here’s the answers…

  1. Nike
  2. Harley Davidson
  3. PlayStation
  4. DuPont
  5. Canon
  6. Holiday Inn
  7. KFC
  8. Nokia
  9. Hallmark
  10. Expedia

There were a few tricky ones in there, so if you got them all, well done!

I’ll be doing a few more of these in the coming weeks, so keep watching the adverts and remembering the slogans!

EvacuateIf you suddenly had to evacuate your house I an instant, what five items would you take with you?

Here’s my five, in no particular order…and they assume my hubby can get himself out!:

  • Tigger (our cat)
  • Mobile phone
  • Purse (which will also contain my credit cards)
  • Laptop
  • All my medication/tablets

OK that’s my list, any of them surprise you? Any surprise omissions?

Yes I’ve not included any person items like photos or anything, because at the end of the day, I have my memories plus many of the more recent photos are on the laptop which I included as one of the items I’d rescue.

You might wonder why I’m taking my mobile phone, but how else am I going to call for help!

What about you, any of your five things the same as mine?

 



We live in a world where we expect everything to happen instantly. For example:

– We can shop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without even going outside by shopping on-line.

– We can speak to someone on the phone, no matter where we are or where they are as the majority of us all have a mobile phone.

– We can do all our banking on-line without even visiting our local bank

– We can order a takeaway meal on the phone or on the internet

 

Is it any wonder we expect God to answer our prayers immediately!

  

If someone asks you something, do you always jump straight in there and offer a response, or do you consider how you wish to response before replying to them?

 

I’m sure there are times when you do answer the person immediately, but I’m also sure there are more times when you do not answer immediately, but instead spend time considering your response before sharing that response.

 

This is exactly why we shouldn’t expect God to answer our prayers immediately, as we wouldn’t do that ourselves! We need to take a time-out from the busyness of everyday life, spend quality time with God. Not only that, but we must allow God time to answer our prayers and requests, because we can be assured that God will answer our prayers – What we must always remember is that God may not answer our prayer immediately, but He will answer it; He may not answer it in the way we expected or wanted, but He will answer it.

 

God will always answer our prayers.
