I’m still feeling under the weather, but it’s been a good week nevertheless. I’ve had to adjust my expectations of some things I planned to do, and I feel like I haven’t said a coherent word to my husband all week, but it still has been a good week.
In our Bible study that meets at our house, we ladies have been attempting to memorize the key verses that go with each lesson. I’ve not been doing very well, and keep putting it off (I’ll work on it later). Of course, we’re half way through the book and I still haven’t memorized any of them. So a few weeks ago, I finally put the cards by my sink so I could see them when I work.
Not surprisingly, I’ve been doing much better keeping the dishes clean right away, and keeping up with my other responsibilities. Here is what I’m working on now.
Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. I Peter 5:5b
God has been reminding me that any time I am selfish, I’m not clothed with humility. He’s been using this thought to motivate me to put aside my own desires for the good of my husband and children. I have been tickled to see my actions and intentions adjusted as God works in my heart. He’s been doing this even though I’ve been feeling terrible.
I must be truthful that last night I went to bed without finishing cleaning the kitchen because I was tired and not feeling well. Being clothed with humility doesn’t make me superwoman!
What has God been reminding you of from His Word?
