This is another scribbled note I found the other day. In the midst of trying to manage my time well, I find that my children and my husband and my household responsibilities can seem real inconveniences in my pursuit of my “To Do” list. And, for those of you who know me, I REALLY depend on my “To Do” list. In fact, I keep it on my Google Calendar so I can daily be updating it.
But, friends, what if these inconveniences in my life, really are my life?
What if my “To Do” list was to love my husband and my children and to be a worker at home? (Titus 2:3-5)
What about the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, who was healed by Jesus as she touched His garment while He was on His way to heal Jesus’ daughter? (Mark 5 & Luke 8)
Or Zacchaeus who met Jesus while He was passing through Jericho? (Luke 19)
Were these people inconveniences to Jesus, or were they an important part of Jesus’ work here on earth?
I pray that I would make the most of every moment that I have here on earth, to love my children and my husband, to love my neighbor, to seek the Lord first, to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.
In His Strength,
