I found this on Pinterest today, and it inspired me to end my weekend of excessive blogging with a motivational mini-post to wish you a great week and a great month of March.
I have strep throat (so not fun!) and was on the couch all weekend. So disappointed that I couldn't make it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, but I needed to get well!
Today's Jesus Calling was a little bit tough for me to understand. I'm going to share it with you...
I am the Resurrection and the Life; all lasting Life emanates from Me. People search for life in many wrong ways: chasing after fleeting pleasures, accumulating possessions and wealth, trying to deny the inevitable effects of aging. Meanwhile, I freely offer abundant Life to everyone who turns toward Me. As you come to me and take My yoke upon you, I fill you with My very Life. This is how I choose to live in the world and accomplish My purposes. This is also how I bless you with Joy unspeakable and full of Glory. The Joy is Mine, and the Glory is Mine; but I bestow them on you as you live in My Presence, inviting Me to live fully in you.
1 Peter 1: 8-9
This really, really got me thinking. Some readings are easier than others when it comes to seeing how they pertain to your life, but we must remember that all readings pertain to our life equally -- it's just about figuring out how they play into our lives and why they are important. This one got me thinking about what is most important in my life, my family. It's not my possessions, my wealth, or anything replaceable. It also got me thinking about how I need to let go of inevitable consequences and silly desires. It's important to give the majority of my focus to what really matters to me and to God.
Other happy things I found on Pinterest this weekend...
I will try to spit out several posts before I have to fly out on Thursday! Stay tuned.
Have a HAPPY week...smile (:
