stacking blocks in the sunlight
how i love them!
I am really beginning to feel the positive effects of the denying of my flesh (i talked about this in yesterday's post). I feel so much clearer in my head, and a lot more focused. I got so much done yesterday, too. The house stayed clean throughout the day, I was able to get some shop work done and pack some packages, and I also had some good quality time with the Lord. I am truly beginning to see that BALANCE I have been asking the Lord for! Hallelujah!
Speaking of that, I want to thank y'all so much for all of your sweet comments on my post yesterday! I felt so much love and support! And I definitely don't feel alone either. It seems like God is working on many of us in this area! He is so faithful, and He will help us!!
I had a minor (very minor in the big scheme of life) setback this morning where the devil tried to steal my joy. I chipped my favorite vintage butter dish that sits on my kitchen counter. I use it almost everyday, and I love it. I put a big chip in it this morning. I almost cried! But, I recognized right away that I needed to resist the temptation to get upset and let it ruin my morning. It's only a butter dish, for heaven's sake! But, I really loved it... Anyway, I pouted about it for about one minute and then I moved on. And now, when I look at that big chip, I can remember that God loves to use cracked vessels! Any willing vessel is precious to Him! :)
Don't let the devil steal your joy either today! This is the day that the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be GLAD in it!!
