Why is it that we take a day of rest and then Monday goes crazy with how much you have to do? My Monday was extremely busy. After being away last week, there was so much to get done today. Amazingly enough, I got a lot accomplished, had time for God, myself and my husband. Don't get me wrong I had to prioritize and push some stuff to do tomorrow. Overall, it was a very productive day.
My Scripture for today is Matthew 25:40 Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. When I read this verse, I immediately felt disheartened. We have been barely getting by all summer and to know that we did not have the finances to reach out and help others brought me sadness. As I was pouring out my heart to God asking Him to forgive me, He showed me all of the things I did to help others over the course of the summer. Phone calls, skype calls, emails, texts, taking in my niece for the summer and homeschooling her, and my writing. All of it were sacrifices of my time. I may not have money to give, but I gave what I had to as many as I could. I realize now that God sees all of the things I give to others, even if I don't realize how important these things are. So today, no matter what you do realize God knows how much you pour out to others and it touches His heart every time we reach out, in whatever way we are able to.
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
