Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Psalm 119:133
Happy Monday! I hope you have as many good things to share as I do and I look forward to reading your stories. My good news started on Friday. I didn’t receive the votes I needed to accept a post I was seeking. You may ask what is so good about that. The good news is the lady who was elected has reached out to me and is going to include me on a committee. After the fact I feel this is a better solution for me with my hectic schedule. I’m happy and excited. I have been studying 1st and 2nd Chronicles. In my studies I have come to realize that God loves people and names are important. I also noticed that order and organization are important. So, this past weekend my husband and I began cleaning and organizing. He has taken on the outside and I’m organizing the inside of our home. I’m embarrassed to admit that it was overdue on both accounts. Our efforts gave me satisfaction and will probably save us both time, energy and stress.
Have you ever realized days, months or even years after an action, that it was wrong? I would guess this is common. As we grow as Christians our knowledge grows. So, what should we do? We have to trust God and try to make amends, even if making amends could be detrimental to our future. Where it is sometimes difficult to trust people, God will never let you down. That doesn’t mean that there will not be hard times. However, when you trust Him, He will never forsake you. What makes this decision difficult is the fact that when we make amends we are vulnerable. Don’t let this stop you. Do the right thing and rest in your faith!
Have a wonderful Monday. God bless you.
