May Day Challenge – Weigh In

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI so badly do not want to write this post today, but I am here. And I am pressing on.

I am back up 2 to my original weight. My weight is jumping around like a water drop on a hot skillet. Ugh.

Hearing and Doing for the Glory of God

Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.”
Luke 11:28

This morning I realized that I spend a lot of time asking what God’s will is for me, but after I get ideas of what I should do, I fizzle out. I don’t take those directives seriously. Sometimes it’s because I forget, and get distracted. Sometimes it’s just hard – or I don’t want to. But that is not who I want to be. I want to be a “hearer” AND a “doer”.

One of the things that I do is overcomplicate things. 🙂 Big surprise there, right? I keep envisioning God’s Will as this huge overturning my life kind of thing – waiting for some big news that will change everything. But really, it’s the little stuff. I don’t think if I keep asking God what He wants me to do each day, and then I ignore the little things that I believe are His will for me, that I’m ever going to make progress in this journey.

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31

Why is it that I can’t seem to see that doing the little stuff can be done for the glory of God. Where did I get the idea that in order for it to glorify God, it had to be huge and life altering? This verse tells me point blank that even my eating and drinking (something that everyone does and doesn’t put much significance in) can be done for the glory of God.

God cares about the way that I eat. I can do His will in my simple acts of eating, drinking, cleaning, exercising, working, taking care of my home, and taking care of my son. And it can be to His glory.
