There are so many things whirling around us, each and every day. Things that are our own desires: picking up a book, sewing, playing guitar, pondering new recipes, surfing the net. Things others need or want us to do or add to our schedule. Do we pause long enough to allow God to speak His desires for our day? Do we seek Him each morning, like the manna for the Isrealites?
As we've been working with our oldest to overcome some learning glitches (& other things) many things are being added to our schedule; we've begun school (full force so to speak); we're getting back to a fall schedule with activities at our church, Burke Community Church; adding in more sports (yes, more sports, really only adding swimming as Thing One can use the extra exercise and Thing Two is SO close to being a confident swimmer, we don't want to loose the momentum). I feel like my schedule is spinning and not mine to control and manipulate. This morning, while unloading the dishwasher, head spinning, words came flooding into my mind ~ faithfulness, humbliness, daily walk. No need to be like Samuel when he heard God speak to him and he ran to Eli. I knew this was God and it was time to search these words. Micah 6:8 came up, it says:
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does
the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. (NIV)
Today, I'll focus on, dwell on how to be just, to love mercy and to walk humbly with my God!
Have a blessed day,
