Am I willing to be sent wherever God desires to send me? I think so. I try to be. So, where has God sent me? God hasn’t sent me to some third world country. God hasn’t sent me down to the local mission. (Not that I won’t go or am against it, it’s just not my point.) So where has God sent me?
God has sent me to my husband. It’s not always easy to be obedient and submissive to my husband, especially when I think that he is wrong, but I really try too. So, I ask myself, what was I thinking when I said “Lord, I’ll go! Send me” several years ago. I’ll tell you what I was thinking … I was thinking that God would send me someplace useful.
How wrong I was. Or was I. Is it useful to be like the woman 1 Peter 3 speaks about, winning my husband over with my daily conversation – the way that I live out my faith? I know that the Lord knows what He is doing. I know that God placed me together with my husband to make God’s kingdom stronger. I know that God has sent me to serve Him by serving my husband. I don’t understand all of this. I don’t pretend to say that it is easy, but it is where God has sent me. That I know.
That is my basic thought for today. I am a little rushed, who isn’t, these days. In fact, I’m getting 6, probably 7 and maybe all 8 of my stepchildren for many days. (Six for all 10 days, the other two not for quite so long.) Anyway, it’s going to be a mad house for a while around my house. All this is to say that it may not be early morning for my posts and some days I may not get it posted at all. If we get all my stepchildren, that’ll be 8 of them plus my 2, 10 total children underfoot! Yikes!
So, I hope that you all enjoy your Christmas holiday. And always remember Christ is the reason for the season! Praise Him and bless Him! Amen!
May God provide the increase!
