collecting about 6 loads of laundry from various places throughout my house,
saying no to snacks and candy requests for the fourth time,
trying to soothe a baby who is fighting sleep due to her poor little runny nose and cough,
and ignoring the ringing church phone that seems to EXPLODE on Mondays with callers desiring to rip off the church (you'd be shocked the kind of calls I field!),
and basically lifting up my voice and screaming to join the rest of the screams of my home,
I realized I had not written a post and I decided to skip it - I have other things going on today. But then a still small voice seemed to drown out the rest of the voices and the chaos around me and said, "This is life in your fishbowl too."
WHAT??? I am NOT going to explain these kind of happenings going on in my home TODAY!
HA HA HA Lord, but no thank you.
I don't have to be THAT transparent!
After all this is MY blog! This isn't YOUR blog. . . or wait. . .
Have you ever felt that maybe God was smiling at you and your little "rants?" Well, I did. Just now, today. So here it is, my life in the fishbowl is pretty messy. My attitude needs an adjustment, my spirit needs calming and after a little "talk" with God, I'm going to go and meditate on this verse - the verse that God laid on my heart in the first place for this blog. Meditate while I put my house in order, both spiritually and physically on this:
I have learned in whatever state I am to be content.
The verse that helped me decide that if God led me to write about it, I would. Because THAT is the only way I will truly find success, is by pleasing HIM and following HIS leading. Even if it means writing about the messies of my life, even if it means sharing the weaknesses that God is exposing in me. Even if it means telling you that my house is currently a DISASTER which strikes my pride in every way imaginable.
So here we are again Lord, and once again I give my blogging to You.
More of YOU and less of me.In HIS Grip,
