Today my family is having a birthday party for me and Brody. Derick is hosting it. I am cooking for it. And I am skipping church so that I can clean my house for it. I guess I don’t really have time for this blog, but sometimes writing about what I have to do helps me clear my head so that I can be more productive. I guess this is a good way to get a jump start on my house. I am constantly lamenting to Derick about the state of… everything. Well, not everything. Sometimes when my house is a mess it feels like everything else is bad too.
I think I’ll start in the bathroom and go from there. The bathroom is quick and it’ll make me feel like I’m actually getting something done. Then the hall and follow it to the kitchen and down the basement stairs. Not really sure what I’m gonna do once I get down the stairs and actually in the basement (since I usually want to run and hide rather than face the mess that is my basement). I guess I’ll just start at the bottom of the stairs and work my way out from there. We’ll see how it goes. I guess Derick’s family already knows that I have a bad case of the messies.
I really believe this is a spiritual battle for me. I want help from God to have strength, energy, etc… But when it comes to cleaning my house, sometimes I think that praying for help is too trivial. Why would God care to help me with that?! Maybe because He knows that I want to honor Him with my house and everything in it. *sigh* Well, I guess I better get to it!
I Corinthians 10:31~
“Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.”
WHATEVER I DO! Anything! No thing is too small for me to work at it for the Lord. So, work hard. Work hard until my family returns from church. Work hard until my family returns, not for them or me, but for God and to His glory and with His strength.
