This Sunday was the last Sunday we will drive 2 hours to get to church. We are looking forward to not having to leave for church at 6 in the morning; and even more excited that we will be arriving home long before 11 PM at night! This is the last week!
We are tired. We seem to all want to blink our eyes and open them again to find we are into next week and the move is over and done. (We even tried tonight; but alas,when we opened them we were still here with boxes surrounding us!)
This is the last week. We have decided as a family that we are going to do our best to make sure our attitudes and actions bring honor and glory to the Lord. It would be so easy to let our flesh make this last week discouraging and bad. So easy for our attitudes to grumble and complain. To walk around defeated and depressed because we are so ready to be moved. Yet, as Christians, our lives have a bigger purpose than packing boxes and cleaning houses - our lives are to honor the Lord. The wonderful part about the Christian life is that it has purpose. No matter how hard the task before us, how meaningless and mundane the task we have to do; we can bring honor and glory to God through the hard things.
Extra care has been given to allot enough time for Bible reading and prayer. For Christ must be our focus - this is the last week! His strength will get us to next week victorious. Not just in the move; but in the heart attitudes we had with each other through the move.
This week is our last week here in this house, in this city to bring honor to God. May He, at the end of this week look down on us as we lay in our beds tired from unloading and unpacking a moving truck say, "Well, done thou good and faithful servants..."
"That we may be to the praise of His glory..." -Eph 1:12
Trust your week - your actions - your activities, whatever they may be - bring honor to God. Thanks so much for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
