Hi, all: I would very much appreciate prayers. I made a commitment to do this blog for an entire year as a way of ensuring I really pay attention to Scripture during my devotions and mostly to seek God as best I can.
Well, He found me! And He called me to this amazing job. I’ve been working 14 hour days and today had to fly home for the weekend (or longer) to care for my husband and girls since the dialysis has really weakened him.
It’s 12: 23 AM and I am just now blogging. It’s starting to feel like a burden. It has felt that way before, but I kept going and it was good. But now I wonder if I can keep it up. I sometimes wonder if I should stop, to take one thing off my plate.
I want my Yes to be Yes – which means to keep a commitment – so I don’t know what to do. I’d appreciate prayers to do what’s best.
So here’s what jumped out today:
But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For neither [following ritual or not following ritual counts for anything], but a new creation. (Galatians 6:14-15 ESV)
That’s where I want to be:
- boasting more often in the cross
- deader to the world
- living more like the new creation I am
Lord: You can do it! Amen
