Wow! Am I late getting out my post today!!!!
This morning DS and I had appointments with the eye doctor. I had one other errand to run, and we should have been home by noon...BUT...that didn't happen and we ended up not getting home till almost 4!!! So.......while my guys are outside pruning some bushes I wanted to join up with the other ladies over At the Well for our weekly Bible study!
It's not too late to join in and delve into God's Word for our lives. Click here to share and learn with us!
This week's discussion is:
Who is master of your life? Who are you allowing to rule over you? Your job? Baggage from the past? Unforgiveness? Hatred? Anger? Unhappiness? Your children?Oh, boy. A discussion like this after a day like today.
Too bad the wording wasn't "Who do you want to be master of your life?" Easy.God. Moving on. But this requires self examination and much transparency.
Who is master of my life? Who rules over me?
Well, honestly...there is a list.
I do try hard (some days) to allow God His rightful position as Master of my life. But if you spent just a short time with me, this is most likely what you'd see:
There would be my spending. I fight the fight daily to keep my spending in check. Financially, we are blessed. We are comfortable with an emergency cushion and bills paid up to date. As a matter of fact, if God continues to bless, we will pay off one of those demonic credit cards in the next month. But spending...I love to shop. Now, albeit I bargain shop, but do you realize how even bargain shopping can ruin you??
Then there would be my house. I'm anal about cleaning my house and keeping it clean. I can obsess about it and like the spending, it's a daily fight to walk by a speck of dirt on my white kitchen floor.
Then there is this computer/blog. Yep. I've shared with you recently how I've had to make a conscious effort to let God run this thing because it had drawn me in hook, line and sinker. I couldn't walk past this computer without taking "just a moment" to check things out. My moments had turn into hours and obsession.
I am so thankful though that God has brought me to the place that He is more easily able to reign me in and get my attention. He doesn't have to yank at me near as hard or half as long. I've come a long way, but oh, I've got such a long way to go.
I am striving for the day when I've thrown down these chains and turned over this body of clay to the Master Potter to do with what He will and I can boldly and proudly say, "He, Jesus Christ, is fully Master of my life!!"
