It has been awhile since I blogged. Recently I have been pondering time. How sometimes I seem to have alot of free time, and yet I get alot of need to do things done. Other times it seems no matter how long or hard I work I never have free time. Some times I find plenty of time to spend in God's word and others I struggle to find 10 minutes to spend there. Sometimes I have lots of time to blog and read blogs and other times I can barely glimpse at the ones I follow.
Ecc 3:1 says: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
This makes me understand a little better that these seasons are normal. And therefore all I can do is go with what God has for me right now in this time/season. But sometimes that is not easy for me. Cause I would rather do something else. That is where obedience to God comes in. Just as a child gets upset when they are made to do something that they don't feel like doing, I also get upset. And then I hear God say, my child, just obey and trust Me. And then I repent, trust and obey. Why must I ever doubt or want my own way? Well because I am still in this earthly body and still have a will.
But today I take comfort in this next verse: Phil 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
So here is how I have obeyed so far this week. I started my spring cleaning a month earlier then normal and have my kitchen almost finished. I just have the cabinet doors and floor left to clean. Oh and the top of the fridge lol. I always seem to forget about that.
Today I cleaned a house with my youngest daughter. She has a house or two that she cleans that are very large and it is much easier if I help her with those. And it gives me a little extra spending money in these trying economic times. So all that will be done here at my home today is the regular things that are done on a daily basis. Tomorrow I will finish up the kitchen, cook a nice supper for my family, and start on either the living room, bathroom or our bedroom.
Praying this finds you safe, heathy and blessed.
