Sometimes I need reminders to do the daily things around the house, like clean the bathroom and make my bed and make sure the kitchen floor is swept - dogs and kids and country living - oh my! I need those reminders so I can get the job done. So my floors look nice when company stops by unexpectedly (I love when friends come and visit with a 5 minute notice- truly!) I wonder why so often I forget that I work for the Lord instead of myself and others. I wonder! I am thankful for a grace-filled God that we serve, aren't you?
Next time we notice ourselves getting upset or frustrated at someone because they weren't 100% thrilled with our new business venture or fun idea we have, think back to Whom we serve. It's okay to seek opinions of others, it's rather helpful at times and I do so often because I need others input on a certain something business or personal related. That's okay. But who do we seek validation from?
Let it be Him and not ourselves or others! I'm cheering for you good and faithful servant! ♥
Matthew 25:21 says, "The master was full of praise. 'Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let's celebrate together!'"
Hello friends, I'm joy. ..
I love sharing my life with you. I enjoy being vulnerable and real because it's then that I hear, "you too?". I hope reading the words from my heart encourages you. We're in this together, friends, so grab your coffee or tea and stick around!
