"You can give up the need to compete in the world — when you accept being complete in Christ." ~ Ann Voskamp
I can so relate to this today. I've had times of floundering and flopping around like a fish out of water the past few months.
Today has been a day of doing what I should do all the time. It's been a day of prayer. A day of keeping quiet. Of contemplation. Of just focusing on my home. So often, I look for others to affirm me and yet, I have ones right here in front of me that need my attention. I'm so busy looking around that I forget to keep focused on the ministry the Lord has given me right within these four walls.
So today, I've been making a comfortable living space for my son who is home from college. I've been taking care of a very sick young lady who is having a flare-up of asthma. I've been making meals for my husband and children. I've been working on things my husband has asked me repeatedly to do and I procrastinate on.
This afternoon, I decided to take a break and check my favorite blog and found this message. God's love reminding me. I love when He does that.
