I have more than I need. But I don't want to confuse the precious with the inconsequential.
Loving my kids and my husband.
Serving and giving.
Investing in relationships.
Spending time with God.
Reading His Word.
I lost my iphone yesterday. After fretting about it for most of the day, I'm beginning to gain perspective again. Life will go on without it. It's inconsequential. The funny thing is, I inherited this device from Jack who got a new one just a few weeks ago. I didn't even really think I needed it. And now, I'm all upset about it.
I must focus on what is precious. And thank you, Lord, I've still got what's precious.
Two little boys, one little girl. A loving husband. A Bible at my bedside and a dozen more around the house. Peace and joy- gifts of God through His Holy Spirit. Jesus- my hope and my salvation.
I still have more than I need. But I don't want to confuse convenience with significance again. And who knows- I might even be better off without it for a while.
Maybe it will help me remember what is precious and what isn't.
*For the most part, I have sworn off movies rated R, but made an exception for this one. The violence was horrific, but if you fast forward through the gore, it's a great movie with an amazing ending. With my disclaimer for unbelievable violence, I recommend it.
