"You will hear many calls. There are hundreds of places where your help could be of value. But you cannot be His tool for each. Trust the One. No need will go unanswered. Follow His task for you today. What you cannot do, be assured the One will send another to do."
(from The Restorer's Journey by Sharon Hinck)
So may good things and opportunites, but are they the right thing to do if they are going to pull me off track? I have such a wonderful opportunity that came my way this week. But, every time I take it to God in prayer I get a very clear, "now is not the time" and, I have to admit, I am having a very difficult time letting it go. My whole desire is to honor God and yet I'm struggling with saying no to this opportunity. And every time I think I have it settled in my heart another angle comes up and again pulls at me.
This week has been a bit frustrating for me on so many different levels. I was supposed to be home every day this week and it ended up that I was out every day this week. Unfortunately, when that happens the house begins to look like a disaster area. So, today I spent doing damage control around the house. It was great to get the house cleaned up and to sit down to a wonderful home cooked meal for supper. It felt good to get things back in order.
My mom stopped by and dropped off some gladiolus from her garden and I added to them with flowers from my garden.
She also dropped off an apron which she made for me.
Having family close is such a blessing. It has been a long week here and I am looking forward to some relaxing time this weekend. A thought I will be meditating on this weekend is...
"Pursue excellence in all things"
