Want Your Vacation to be the Best Ever!!! Don't Forget to Pack!

Are you planning a vacation, or weekend getaway?

Great vacations are pursued by us all.  Whether it be a Summer vacation, Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations, spring break, or just a weekend getaway; an approaching vacation will captivate a great deal of our attention.  

Making reservations, packing suitcases, and planning a vacation itinerary so that we can squeeze the most out of the time we have away often consumes our thinking.  We will meet with a travel agent, pick up brochures, and purchase tickets months in advance.  We even make check lists and packing lists to be sure we did not forget anything.  The thought, “Am I forgetting something” usually grips us just as we are leaving the house for the vacation.  

A vacation taking opportunity is just around the corner.  Are you prepared?  Have you planned?  Have you forgotten anything?

What are you forgetting to pack?

Did you forget Jesus?  

Wait...What?  You didn't pack a Bible?  You are not going have your devotions or do some Bible reading while you are gone for a week?  You didn't include selecting a church to visit while you were away over the weekend?  You don't have time for that?  So, what you are saying is that it will take away the time that you were going to use to do what you wanted to do, and to have fun?  

Often the only time we pray to God for anything on vacation is when you think to ask Him to protect you as you leave out your driveway on the trip or to pray for good weather when you see ominous clouds.

That sounds bad when you really think about it doesn't it?  You didn't realize how it looked until you read it in black and white or how it sounded until you heard it in your head?  

Don't worry, I am as guilty as you might be.  But I am asking the Lord to help me not to do forget about him on my vacations and getaways from now on.  Even on trips when I am no where near a church or scheduled church service time, I can at least lead my family in a time of worshipful devotion right there in the car, the hotel room, the tent, or wherever we are.  

Don't forget about God when you get the chance to get away for even a short time.  He never forgets about you!

Don't forget to take God with you on your next vacation.  Don't forget to worship God on your might be the best vacation and best worship service you have ever had.  

Hebrews 10:23, 25

"Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised;)  

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another: and so much the more as ye see the day approaching."
