I have those moments when I am overwhelmed at how good God is. This week gave just these kinds of gifts.
Last Sunday, after doing a ministry booth for Brighten A Corner at a local church, I came home and started working on a Bible Study I am doing. A study that has been sitting on my shelf gathering dust for years. I am loving it! While reading Scriptures and filling in blanks I had an epiphany. I realized that God wants me to deal with my laziness.
God doesn't speak to me in an audible voice. It is hard to articulate what it really looks like when I feel like God is communicating with me, but it is a certainty in my mind and heart. The certainty lines up with Scripture. The effect of the impression would either benefit others or mean more godly character for me.
Not very sophisticated, but that it is my life with Him.
Sometimes a revelation like that is NOT what I want. Really. There are so many areas of my character/life that need "fixing". But in this tiny moment of time, I found this empowering. I really felt like letting God do His work in me would be a great, great thing.
Monday rolled around and I prayerfully continued to mull around getting rid of my laziness. Lo and behold I had more energy to approach our home school day!
Tuesday my former house cleaner--who I had to say goodbye to last year because we couldn't afford
it--was back. PRAISE THE LORD. She and I cleaned for hours. I put away piles, threw things away, folded and scrubbed. It was the cleanest my house had been in months.
YES! It seemed like the mere act of confessing that I was ready to deal with my laziness made room for change.
I have actually gotten on the treadmill more than once. I have been more patient. God is just so good.
