"But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life." Romans 6:22
It's definitely Monday morning. Aren't Monday mornings just crazy sometimes? I often get to the end of a Monday and have to remind myself-it's just Monday! I don't know how it happens but there's just so much going on and so much to do that by the end of the day I feel like it has to at least be Thursday. Well I still have dishes to do and laundry to start washing and I am still sipping on my morning coffee at 11:30. Yes, it has been a slow morning:)
But most importantly I was able to be in the Word and read this verse from Romans and be reminded that its not about me anyways. I am a slave to God. I am being sanctified. I have been blessed with eternal life. These are all good reminders and change my attitude about everything when I put things into perspective. I am thankful that the word revives the soul and helps me to think on what really matters.
Also, yes, you caught me! I skipped my reading on Sunday. I have always struggled with that. I don't know why it is harder for me to find time to be in the Word on Sunday. I think I can easily justify missing my time with the Lord because I am going to church, hearing His word, and being around believers but I know that is not a good excuse at all. Do any of you struggle with this? What has helped you?
