So, do you remember my word for the year….Simple.
The only way I can keep things simple…is by asking this question about anything I do…each and every moment of the day…
Does this Glorify God?
if the answer is no…then, my response is simple….I will not do it.
Sounds simple, right - right? Right…um, NO…that’s only simple for Jesus…he was the only one ever born …and remained perfect.
But, that question is a good place to start.
So, I start each day…with prayer…
and then, a Bible Study with Good Morning Girls. Right now, we are studying Ephesians. The first morning..I ended up studying Ecclesiastes (wrong part of the Bible)…and what I thought was a mistake was truly the hand of God…
3 What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
4 Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
What I was supposed to be reading/writing…I found Tuesday morning:
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
And…that lead me straight to what I am studying with my women’s Discipleship group- the verses I am memorizing this week:
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him (Colossians 1:15-16)
You see…I need a constant reminder (because I am a sheep) that all of my plans are worthless and meaningless if they are not focused on him and truly if they are not from him! I need to be reminded that he selected his children….before creation….and that through the One he loves…through his son….all things were created…and I need to remember to always chew the cud!
If I focus on those things…then, I remember the beauty of his love for me….and for you!
